The brothers allegedly approached Grandzol and his toddler outside of the 38-year-old's home on Thursday evening, demanding his wallet and vehicle keys.

Marvin is alleged to be the person who actually shot Grandzol in the face as he rushed to protect his 2-year-old daughter, according to Metro.

Police say there are no other suspects involved in the incident, and their family is cooperating with police.

Pennsylvania police have arrested two brothers in connection with the shooting death of a Philadelphia man, as reported by NY Daily News.

Police say Grandzol pulled up to his home on the block around 8 p.m.in his family SUV with his daughter and dog inside.

The older brother, 21-year-old Maurice Roberts was taken into custody earlier in the week. Police say Grandzol was trying to get his 2-year-old daughter out of the auto when he was shot twice in the head.

Grandzol handed the two brothers his wallet but refused to turn over his auto keys because his 2-year-old daughter was still inside, police said.

Another wrote, "Gerry Grandzol died protecting his daughter. And they shot him for it", Homicide Capt. John Ryan was quoted as saying by the CBS affiliate in Philadelphia.

Grandzol was shot at least once in the face and died at a nearby hospital. "He was just the best father to our two girls that you could even imagine", the victim's wife, Kristin Grandzol, told KYW Newsradio "He was welcoming to everyone in the neighborhood". Those two gunshots just destroyed my life and my two daughters don't have a father now. "I have a six-week-old daughter and a two-and-a-half year-old who saw the whole thing and I don't know if she'll ever be right".

A neighbor portrayed Grandzol as "continually grinning". "We will always remember him as a leader, philanthropist, proud father, loving husband and good friend", Special Counsel president Laurie Chamberlin said.

His 21-year-old brother - who allegedly was with him when Gerard Grandzol was shot - had been placed on probation in May after pleading guilty to selling drugs in Center City, court records show.
