I'm the oldest of 4 brothers and while every once in awhile, we fight like all siblings do, I can thankfully say that none of us have tried to literally kill each other (unless it was while we were in our rooms "wrasslin"). Unfortunately, a disagreement between brothers lead one to allegedly assault the other and now he's on the run from police.

The Incident Was Reported At 3:00 AM Saturday December 18th.

What Caused A Him To Stab His Own Brother?

This entire situation could have been avoided by someone having a cooler head and turning the volume down. Apparently, the two brothers got into an argument over loud music being played inside of the residence. At some point during the argument, Quentin retrieved a knife from the kitchen and stabbed Jerry in the abdomen. Quentin then ran out of the residence and fled from the location. Quentin Dwayne Gardner is now wanted for Aggravated Assault Causing Serious Bodily Injury.
