Police in Renton, WA accuse a 22-year old man of stabbing to death his 11-year old brother “in broad daylight,” KIRO 7 reported.
Murphy Hun died of stab wounds near his family’s home in Renton, Washington.
Police say Hun had run out of his home to escape his brother, 22-year-old Bobby Hun, following a “violent interaction.” The older Hun then allegedly stabbed his younger brother with a kitchen knife.
Neighbor Thomas Rountree told KIRO 7 he “never in a million years” expected to witness a stabbing of a young boy.
“I got closer and I just saw all this blood,” Rountree said. “It literally looked like the kid got into a shower and was just drenched in blood.”
Murphy was taken to Harborview Medical Center where he died. Police arrested Bobby, booked him for investigation of homicide and imprisoned him at King County Jail, according to the Renton Police Department.
Bobby is due to appear in court as of Monday and has not yet entered a plea, according to People.
Murphy’s mother Shanty Hak told KIRO 7 said she is trying to cope. She believes her son could have been saved if neighbors responded to his pleas of help.
“I miss him so much, he’s my boy,” said a teary Hak.
Hak and Murphy’s aunt Thu Carpenter said Bobby loved his brother very much and would never hurt him.
The sixth grader was known for being friendly and respectful.
“This is the side of [Bobby] we did not see coming,” Carpenter said.
