Carey Sullivan

MANITOWOC, WI (WTAQ) – The District Attorney’s office in Manitowoc County will not be pressing charges against a 62-year-old man who shot and killed his brother in June.

Robert Sullivan called 911 on June 23rd and told dispatchers he had just shot 65-year-old Carey Sullivan with a shotgun at close range.

The shooting happened during a heated argument over control of their family’s estate.  It was the last argument of many the two brothers had over several years after their parents death.

Robert had been living at his deceased parents’ house for about seven years, and Carey had recently moved in.

Police had numerous run-ins with the brothers because of disagreements and tensions appeared to be rising between the brothers.

Investigators say Carey had a history of threatening and aggressive behavior, while Robert did not.
