Man fronts court accused of shooting his 16-year-old brother
A 16-year-old boy has undergone more surgery, as his brother faced court accused of shooting him at their Adelaide home.
Dimitri Gatis, 21, is charged with attempted murder, as well as trafficking in a controlled drug.
He faced Port Adelaide court accused of shooting his brother Alex through the window of their Lockleys home yesterday morning.
Alex was shot in the stomach and underwent surgery again today. He remains in a serious condition.
Just hours before the alleged shooting, Gatis posted a bizarre video on social media in which he appeared incoherent.
In court, he remained silent. His lawyer did not apply for bail - but did indicate he hopes there might be a resolution in the case. But what that might be remains unclear.
Gatis was remanded in custody and outside the hearing, his uncle said the family will support each other.
"We have a close family," he said.
The brother's parents are currently in transit and are due to arrive home tomorrow night having cut short a holiday in Greece, desperate to get back to Australia.
The family says the brothers love each other and they can't understand why this has happened.
Gatis will face court again next month.
