HARRISON COUNTY -- A man is accused of shooting his brother in a leg and his back in an argument over trick-or-treating with one of their children Halloween night, a detective said.

Casey Alden Louviere, 30, shot his brother Friday while his own child was in the backseat of his vehicle, Harrison County Sheriff's Lt. Judy Coley said.

The shooting occurred in the 7100 block of Bosarge Road, which has a Long Beach address. Casey Louviere lives there, Coley said. The rural neighborhood is a few blocks north of Hartzell Road.

The brothers had planned to go trick-or-treating together with Casey Louviere's son but Casey Louviere decided to take his son somewhere else without his brother, Coley said.

Corey Louviere, 35, wanted to celebrate Halloween with his nephew, Coley said.

They argued and Casey Louviere drove off but returned and they got in an argument, Coley said.

"He (Casey Louviere) was still sitting in his car," Coley said. "He rolled down the window and fired at his brother with his kid in the back seat," Coley said.

Corey Louviere was taken to Memorial Hospital at Gulfport and was treated and released. His wounds were not life-threatening, Coley said.

Casey Louviere was booked at the Harrison County jail on a $50,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Diane Ladner. He was released from jail in less than an hour, the jail docket shows.

Casey Louviere's child was not injured. But it's unclear if he faces additional charges, such as child endangerment.

"That's up to the District Attorney's Office to decide," Coley said.
