PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A 62-year-old man is facing murder charges for the shooting death of his brother on Christmas Eve.

Portland Police Bureau detectives arrested Mickey Rolin on Friday. He is charged with murder with a firearm and was booked in the Multnomah County Jail.

At 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, officers were called to a home on the 3600 block of Southeast 67th Avenue on the report of a domestic disturbance and shooting.

Emergency crews located Terry Rolin, 61, suffering from critical injuries. He died at the scene.

Police said the situation was a family fight that led to gunfire. A neighbor first called 911.

Terry Rolin's wife told Fox 12 earlier this week that she doesn't want her husband remembered as the victim in Tuesday night's shooting. She wants him known as the avid fisherman and loving grandfather who was found chatting with neighbors in the yard.

"How could such a warm and loving person go out in such a cold and heartless way? I am so confused and mad and will miss him more than anyone on this Earth," she said.

Detectives are asking for anyone who had contact with the brothers during the day or early evening on Christmas Eve to contact them at 503-823-9319, 503-823-0416, mark.slater@portlandoregon.gov or mark.sponhauer@portlandoregon.gov.

Mickey Rolin is set to appear in court Monday afternoon.
