Police are investigating after a man was stabbed four times by his brother while attending a funeral.
About 75 family members were gathered at DeAngelo’s Funeral Home in Washington for the funeral of a loved one, when all of a sudden two family members began fighting and one was stabbed four times.
This happened Tuesday afternoon around 1 p.m. Funeral home owner Dale DeAngelo says there was a two-hour viewing followed by the funeral service.
“I was inside … speaking to the minister and the widow of the deceased regarding some of the details for the funeral, and I heard some commotion in the foyer here and someone outside was fighting,” he said.
Outside fighting in the parking lot, according to police, were brothers Devontye Walden, 24, and Justice Walden, 22.
Justice is said to have stabbed his older brother in the wrist, stomach, armpit and chest.
The fight was reportedly over what Devontye chose to wear to the uncle’s funeral – the color red.
