CORONA (CBSLA) – A man has been charged with murder, accused of stabbing his brother to death and wounding three other men in a residential Corona neighborhood Monday evening.

Brandon Barber, 29, was taken into custody on one count of murder and several counts of attempted murder, Corona police confirmed to CBS2 Tuesday.

Just before 5 p.m., police were called to the 1300 block of Turquoise Drive on a report of people fighting in the street outside a home.

Officers arrived on scene to find one man dead and three more men suffering stab wounds. The injured men were rushed to local hospitals, at least one of whom was in critical condition.

Barber, the deceased man’s brother, was apprehended at the scene and booked into jail early Tuesday morning.

“He (the suspect) tried to come in the house to get help, and my husband was like, ‘no,’ cause we have kids and we didn’t want him coming into the house,” one neighbor told CBS2 Tuesday.

Police did not immediately say if they had a motive in the attacks.

“Any witnesses in the area that may have witnessed this physically or have cellphone or dash cam video then absolutely, please contact us,” Corona Police officer Tobias Kouroubacalis said.

Barber is being held in the Southwest Detention Center on $1 million bail. His brother’s name was not released.
