Two brothers were stabbed, one fatally, early today in their home in West Baltimore, police said.
The attacks took place about 5:30 a.m. in the 2800 block of W. Lafayette Ave.
Police said that Derik Strickland, 26, was pronounced dead at the scene of stab wounds. His brother, David Strickland, 23, was taken to the University of Maryland Medical Center, where he was in critical condition with a stab wound in the back.
Investigators said Derik Strickland and an unnamed friend had gone out to purchase transmission fluid when Strickland saw a man on a bicycle who stopped and talked to him.
