A man has been accused of fatally shooting his twin brother outside a hotel in Portland, Oregon.

Martre Oliver was taken into custody by US Marshals Tuesday night in Renton, Washington, after his brother, Martese Oliver, was found dead outside a hotel on Sunday, the Portland Police Bureau said in a statement.

Martre, 26, was charged with second-degree murder and unlawful use of a weapon, Portland police said.

According to authorities, Martese was found just before 3:30 am local time early Sunday morning outside the Howard Johnson Hotel in Sumner, Portland. Investigators said he died at the scene and a medical examiner ruled his death a homicide.

Speaking with FOX 12 Oregon, a neighbor, identified only as Brenda, told the outlet that she was at home when the shooting occurred. “She was asleep,” she said. “I heard a couple of shots, and then I heard a car drive away.”

Brenda said she then went upstairs to ask her granddaughter if she had heard the shots.

“I said, ‘Did you hear anything? ‘” Ella told the outlet. “She’s like, ‘Somebody just fired a few shots and walked away.'” Then a few minutes later, [there were] police cars everywhere.”

Authorities did not release details about what led up to the shooting.
