      Man stabs his brother in Fairfax County

      A neighbor and a police officer are standing at the scene of a stabbing in Fairfax County Monday night.

      Two brothers were hospitalized Monday night after one stabbed the other in their Burke, Va., home. The younger, a 25-year-old, was in life-threatening condition at one point but was expected to survive.

      Neighbors at the townhome complex said they heard a woman calling for help, screaming that her brother had stabbed her other brother.

      "One of my son's friends brothers got stabbed by his other brother," said Lisa Smith, a neighbor.

      Police said the stabbing occurred around 9 p.m. in the 10500 block of Oak Bluff Court. Two men were injured, the 25-year-old and a 28-year-old male.

      Residents of the townhome complex say the young man who stabbed his brother has a history of mental illness. Neighbor Nemo Randzo said the sister said her brother had recently stopped taking medication.

      Fairfax County Police are investigating.
