A man allegedly shot dead by his brother at a Lakeside mobile home park last week has been identified as 65-year-old George Hernandez by the Medical Examiner's office.

Deputies say George Hernandez was shot by his brother Felix Joseph Hernandez, 50, inside his home at the Pana-Rama Mobile Home Estates off Highway 8 Business Loopsaround 4:30 p.m. Friday.

Felix Hernandez is also accused of shooting another man who was inside the home. He was identified Tuesday as 65-year-old Elwin Ray Downs.

Downs survived the shooting and is recovering from his injuries.

Deputies found George Hernandez  unresponsive inside the mobile home and officials pronounced him dead at 5:05 p.m.

According to deputies, Downs identified Felix Hernandez as the shooter and other witnesses confirmed he was at the mobile home at the time of the shooting.

Following the shooting, deputies said Felix Hernandez fled the scene in a vehicle but returned shortly after, which is when he was arrested.

Heather Williams told NBC 7 she's known George Hernandez for more than 20 years.

"Giving, kind hearted -- he would give the shirt off his back for you. He would give money to homeless people," Williams said of the victim.
