Brothers die in Miami's Little Haiti in fight over clothes
Stephen Odeus, 14, and Stanley Blanc, 16, die in murder-suicide
MIAMI, Fla. – A fight that started over clothing ended with two teen brothers dead.
On Monday, a family in Miami's Little Haiti was mourning the deaths of the boys, according to Local 6 News sister station WPLG-TV.
Stephen Odeus, 14, shot and killed his older brother Stanley Blanc, 16, in the hallway of their home Sunday, their brother, Mark Blanc, said. Odeus then walked across the parking lot and shot himself, Blanc said.
Officials took the two to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where they were pronounced dead, police said.
Blanc said no one in the house owned the gun.
Near Northeast 71st Street and First Avenue, where the tragedy happened, there were two memorials Monday afternoon.
"We love you," wrote one friend. "Rest in Peace," said another.
Their mom was inconsolable.
"A murder and a suicide, she must be going through hell," said Margaret Jones, a neighbor.
