Nine years after his brother was shot and killed in a neighborhood dispute, new Detroit Lions defensive tackle Danny Shelton said he has found peace thanks to football, his dogs and a few special people in his life.

Shelton, who signed a two-year free-agent deal with the Lions last week, was a senior in high school when a gunman killed his brother, Skeevie, and injured another brother, Gaston.
