SUGAR LAND, Texas (KTRK) -- Two brothers have been arrested after a shooting outside a pizza restaurant in Sugar Land on Sunday sparked a SWAT standoff overnight.

Sugar Land police said a 911 caller said two men got into an argument at the MOD Pizza at 19820 Southwest Freeway near the Grand Parkway just after 7 p.m.

The argument escalated and one man pulled out a gun and shot the other in the leg outside the restaurant, police said. The shooter then got into his car and fled the scene with another man, witnesses said.

The 21-year-old man who was shot was taken to the hospital in stable condition, investigators said.

In an update on Monday morning, police said they found the suspect's car about a mile away outside a home in the 2100 block of Canyon Crest Drive.

Police determined the owner of the vehicle lived at the house and later confirmed the shooter was inside.

A perimeter was set up, but police said they were unable to make contact with anyone inside.

Hours later, police eventually made contact. That's when a child and the child's grandmother exited the house.

At 6:30 a.m., the shooter and the man who drove the getaway car exited the house and were arrested without incident, police said.

The suspects were identified as brothers, 31-year-old Jordan Kilpatrick and 34-year-old Christian Alexander Kilpatrick.

Police said Jordan was the shooter. He was charged with aggravated assault. Christian Alexander was reportedly the getaway driver, and he was charged with robbery.

No one was injured during the standoff.

A third person came outside with the two suspects at the end of the standoff but had no involvement in the shooting, police said.
