VISTA, Calif. — Authorities Tuesday released the name of a 19-year-old North County man who was gravely wounded over Presidents Day weekend in a shooting allegedly carried out by his older brother.

The suspect was being held at San Diego Central Jail without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
