Doze, who was arrested in May after he allegedly shot his brother, was out on bail for the murder charge when he was arrested Sunday, violating his bond conditions. As a result, his bond was remanded.

On May 2, Leon Valley police responded to a shooting call at the Vista Del Rey apartments at 5622 Evers Road, according to Doze’s murder affidavit. Police found Ronald Doze, 39, bleeding from a gunshot wound to his upper thigh.

When police asked Ronald Doze who shot him, he responded, “my brother,” according to the affidavit. He was rushed to the hospital, but died later that day.

A witness later told police that the shooting happened in her apartment, where Ronald Doze also lived. She told officers that she went to bed around 3 a.m. while Ronald Doze was drinking with Darren Doze and an unknown woman.

The witness was awakened hours later by Ronald Doze shouting to her to call police. She then heard a gunshot, according to the affidavit.

When she ran to the kitchen, she saw Ronald Doze shot as his brother was fleeing the apartment with a rifle, she told police.

Darren Doze allegedly apologized to the woman for the shooting in her apartment, telling her that Ronald made “unwanted passes” at the other woman, according to the affidavit.

Leon Valley police arrested Darren Doze days later, on May 7, with the help of the U.S. Marshals.
