Larry Peters, Chicago man shoots and kills brother for telling him to ‘be quiet’

A man has been charged with murder after shooting and killing his younger brother for telling him to be quiet.

Larry Peters, 63, is alleged to have shot his brother Ronald Peters, 50, twice during the domestic dispute which happened on Friday afternoon in Englewood, Chicago.

The Assistant State Attorney Terri Gleason said that Ronald Peters was at home, where he lived with his 17-year-old daughter, when he shouted up at Larry Peters to be quiet.

Larry Peters then allegedly came downstairs with a shotgun. The unarmed Ronald Peters tried to take the gun away without success, and police say the first shot was fired when Larry entered his brother Ronald’s apartment.

Prosecutors say Ronald Peters’ daughter heard her uncle enter the living room, and that the girl heard a shot and her father crying in pain.

Ronald Peters is thought to have made it to the front door before crawling into the street bleeding from a wound in his side. A witness claims to have seen Larry Peters come to the porch, raise his shotgun and and shoot his brother a second time in the torso. 

A police report records that minutes later Larry Peters approached an officer and said, “I just shot my brother and I want to turn myself in.”


Peters was held without bail and set to appear in court Tuesday.

    Warning to all human beings…these primitive, apeish n1ggers will attempt to kill you for even the slightest of things..it is in their simian, feral, subhuman nature. Always carry a gun, and never leave a n1gger wounded. Shoot to kill.
