A fight between two brothers over sharing clothes turned deadly after Steven Odeus shot and killed his older brother Stanley Blanc and then took his own life.
“Started off as a small petty argument over clothes that escalated into a fight,” Marc Blanc, a third brother told CBS4 News. “Right before my eyes my brother just shot my other brother.
Marc Blanc, 18, told the news station that his brothers began fighting inside their apartment in the Little Haiti section of Miami and that family members separated the two. The fight picked up again outside and Steven, 14, shot Stanley, 16, and then ran across the parking lot and shot himself.
Blanc told the news station that he doesn’t know where his brother got the gun but he doesn’t believe that Steven set out to kill Stanley.
“In my mind, I think he didn’t really mean to,” said Blanc. “Nobody, that’s blood, nobody wants to kill their own brother. At the same time I got mixed feelings about a lot of stuff right now. I’ve been crying a lot. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. I want people to know, love your kids, love one another. Don’t sweat the small stuff.”
