Police say a Calgary man is to be charged with second-degree murder in the death of his brother, who was found dead early Thursday morning in the community of Rundle.

The body was found after officers were called to the 0-100 block of Rundlehorn Terrace N.E. at about 1 a.m. for reports of a man in medical distress.

Police believe a verbal argument between the brothers escalated to a physical fight. Officers said the younger brother was fatally injured.

Global News has confirmed the victim was stabbed.

An autopsy is underway. His name has not been released as police work to notify next of kin.

The accused, a 34-year-old man, was taken into custody.

Police said his name will be released once he sees a justice of the peace.

The incident caused the temporary closure of the Rundle LRT Station. It reopened shortly after 5 a.m.
