GREENVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

There was no brotherly love at a home in Greenville on Friday after police say one man attempted to shoot his brother while the brother was on the toilet.

Greenville Police say they were dispatched to a home in the 100 block of 1st Street after a man called and said his brother tried to shoot him.

When authorities arrived, the victim met the police outside saying his brother, 21-year-old Joseph Eddins, was trying to kill him.

The victim who is being named only as Eddins brother, says he was in the bathroom on the toilet with the door closed when a shot rang out. Police say the victim felt wind from the bullet flying by his head after his brother had threatened to kill him - Eddins barely missed his target.

Police say this incident stemmed from an argument that happened earlier in the day.

Eddins has a history with authorities - recently he has been in an anger management program related to a domestic violence incident against his mother.

Eddins remains in custody at the Butler County Detention Facility.
