ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. — A Sharpsburg teen who allegedly killed his younger brother in a fight last week frantically told an emergency dispatcher, "I killed him," according to a 911 call released Monday.

Last Wednesday, police arrested Olabode Raphael Fashola in the death of his 13-year-old brother at a house on Mill Branch Road.

The younger boy died from blunt force trauma, police said. The two boys were arguing and their parents weren't home at the time of the fight, police said.  

"You need to come quick. I... I... I killed him," the caller told 911. "Please, get here quick. Now! Now! Now!"

Fashola was standing in the doorway when officers arrived.

He is being held in the Nash County jail. The exact charges against him haven't been released, nor has his brother's name.
