A man found his twin brother is fatally shot with a crossbow outside a Michigan home on Wednesday.

Norton Shores police said they arrested a 20-year-old man from Grant on an open murder related to the shooting of Mark Olmsted, also 20. The shooting was not a random act and the suspect apparently knew Olmsted, authorities said.

The man was “discharged with a crossbow at the victim, striking him in the torso and killing him in his driveway,” a press release from the Norton Shores Police Department said.

The police said the death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy, FOX17 reported. The suspect’s identity was withheld pending his arrest Friday.

Olmsted’s twin brother, Maxwell discovered him in the driveway of his house, with a crossbow bolt stuck in his torso. His stepmother, Michelle Olmsted, told WOOD-TV she was trying to resuscitate.

“The first thing I do, I see him, I went into nurse mode, controlled by a pulse doing CPR,” she said. “He was already past. He was cold.”

Michelle said her stepson had returned from a friend’s house playing games hours before his death and was waiting on a girl that he had sent. She said: his twin brother is devastated.

“Max has the strongest relationship with Marcus than the others,” she said. “He is devastated. He is very angry. He is a 20-year-old young man. He got a stream of emotions. He lost half of himself — his twin brother.”
