New court documents showed a disagreement over social media led to the death of a metro high school student.

Oklahoma City police and the U.S. Marshals Service arrested two teenagers they said were involved in a planned gunfight that turned deadly.

A 19-year-old was arrested in the metro and police said on Wednesday the victim’s 15-year-old brother was arrested in Kansas City. Police confirmed both were taken into custody Tuesday.

A dispute that played out over social media ended in the death of 17-year-old Gjmon Davis. Davis' younger brother Jeremyah Davis and 19-year-old Zachary Ramsey were the first to be arrested for the June 1 deadly shooting.

“Police responded to Southwest Medical Center apparently someone had been shot and was dropped off at the ER and the car left the scene,” said Msgt. Gary Knight, Oklahoma City Police Department. “The victim had been pronounced dead after arriving at the hospital.”

According to court documents, hospital security footage showed Davis' 15-year-old brother helped the victim into the hospital and left. Further investigation found the victim, his younger brother, and two others were involved in a social media argument with another group. Police learned the victim's brother instigated the gunfight with the other side. That group gave them an address to come over to "fight or shoot it out."

“The shooting had taken place (near) Southwest 25th (Street) and Youngs (Boulevard),” said Knight. “When officers went to that area, they found a scene there.”

Police said witness statements and evidence pointed to Davis' younger brother and Ramsey's involvement in the gunfight. Investigators filed arrest warrants for both teenagers this week. Police did not say what Ramsey's role was in the gunfight.

Ramsey was placed into custody at the Oklahoma County jail with a $10 million bond. 

District officials with Oklahoma City Public Schools confirmed Davis was a student at U.S. Grant High School.
