Jatae Gourrier, a Troy man accused of shooting and killing his younger brother, appeared before a judge on Wednesday to be arraigned.

One big question is what would lead one brother to murder the other.

Jaylin Gourrier-Lewis was just 16 years old when he lost his life in gunfire February 9 in Troy.

Many in the community mourned his death. He was known as being outgoing and always smiling.

Then police arrested his brother, 21-year-old Jatae Gourrier-Lewis. He was charged with second-degree murder.

District Attorney Mary Pat Donnelly said the material in this case includes body camera footage.

Police said they took Jatae into custody after a chase while responding to a domestic disturbance.

Jatae pleaded not guilty and was sent back to jail.

Just last week, police say another of Jatae’s brothers, Jahiem Gourrier, was arrested, wanted for attempted murder for a shooting on 5th Avenue in January.

Donnelly was asked if there was any history between the brothers that would have led to the murder.
