A fight between two brothers led to several Evanston police units rushing to the 1700 block of Dodge Avenue last night.

The incident happened about 9 p.m. Police say 19-year-old Ocyrus Flowers got into a dispute with his 16-year-old brother that left them with minor injuries by the time their father managed to break it up.

Police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan says that after interviewing the participants and witnesses, police determined that Ocyrus was the aggressor in the incident and he was charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.

Dugan says police also confiscated for safe-keeping four BB guns they found inside the Flowers home.
