A fight between two teen brothers turned deadly in Miami when Steven Odeus, 14, shot and killed his older brother, 16-year-old Stanley Blanc, before shooting and killing himself.

“It started off as a small petty argument over clothes that escalated into a fight,” says 18-year-old Marc Blanc, the victims’ brother.

“Stanley wanted to wear Steven’s clothes; Steven didn’t want him to,” family friend Kedner Louis says.

According to Marc Blanc, the fight started inside the family’s apartment. Family members separated the two, but the fight reignited outside. After Odeus shot his brother, Blanc says Odeus ran across the apartment complex and took his own life in the parking lot.

Blanc says he feels guilty and wishes he could’ve done more to save his brothers.

“In my mind, I think he didn’t really mean to,” says Blanc. “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.”

Blanc says he doesn’t know how his little brother got hold of a gun.
