MIAMI – It all started with a fight over sharing clothes. On Monday, a family in Miami's Little Haiti was mourning the deaths of two teenage brothers.
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 walked across the parking lot and shot himself, Blanc said.
Blanc said no one in the house owned the gun. Rescue took the two to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where they were pronounced dead, police said.
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.
