A 15-year-old has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of his brother in Belcamp Thursday afternoon, according to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.
Around 2:35 p.m., Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the 1300 block of Jervis Square in Belcamp for the report of a stabbing. When they arrived, deputies found 18-year-old Gary Bernard Williams suffering from a stab wound to the upper body, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s Office. They immediately rendered medical care until relieved by medics who took Williams to the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center, where he was later pronounced deceased.
Shortly after they arrived, deputies identified Williams’ brother, whose name has not been released, as the suspect and arrested him.
The investigation was assumed by detectives from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division. Investigators from the Forensic Services Unit responded to the area to collect and preserve physical evidence in support of the investigation.
Investigators determined the brothers were involved in an argument when the younger brother stabbed his older brother with a knife. The younger brother was taken to the Criminal Investigations Division to be interviewed.
What charges will be filed and if the younger brother will be charged as an adult or juvenile have not been determined, according to Cristie Hopkins, director of media relations for the Sheriff’s Office.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Det. Donald Kramer, 443-409-3546.
