BUCHANAN DAM, Texas (KXAN) — A 19-year-old was charged in the death of his 24-year-old brother after a fight at their home in Buchanan Dam on Wednesday.

The Llano County Sheriff’s Office says the brothers were involved in a fist fight and that Joshua Lane McClinton hit his brother, Daniel, once and that the older brother fell to the ground.

When medics responded to the home in the 9700 block of Ranch Road 1431 about 5:20 p.m., they found Daniel unresponsive and CPR was being performed. He was taken to Scott and White Llano Hospital where he later died.

Joshua McClinton was booked into the Llano County Jail and charged with criminally negligent homicide.

Investigators were interviewing witnesses and are still waiting on autopsy results from the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the cause of death.
