NBA YoungBoy has faced charges of attempted murder.

It looks like at least one of his younger brothers succeeded.

Police in East Baton Rouge have arrested 16-year-old Jeffrey Tate and 18-year-old Davaughn Tate in the murder of 17-year-old Javon Brown, who died at the hospital on Tuesday morning after being shot while walking home Monday afternoon in East Baton Rouge Parish.

Jeffery Tate has been confirmed NBA YoungBoy's younger brother.  Davaughn Tate is Jeffery's brother but his relationship to YoungBoy is unknown.

According to investigators, Brown and his friend were on their way home when three males approached them and started a fatal fight which included gunfire. Devaughn is said to be the one to pull the trigger.

Davaughn is being charged with second-degree murder and illegal use of a weapon. Jeffery is facing charges of principal to second-degree murder, principal to illegal use of a weapon and simple battery.

YoungBoy is currently under house arrest for violating his probation on charges that stem from his involvement in a 2016 driveby shooting in Baton Rogue.

During the trial -- which started with YoungBoy being charged with first degree attempted murder -- the rapper told the judge "at least he didn't kill anyone."

"But you could have," the judge shot back. "It wasn't for lack of trying. You weren't a good shot."

Sadly, his brother may have been.
