A 26-year-old woman was reportedly stabbed to death by her younger brother in an alleged domestic violence case in Brooklyn on Sunday, July 24.

The female victim was identified as Shanelle Colquhoun. She was knifed in the neck by her 17-year-old brother inside the East Flatbush home on Beverley Road near East 48th Street around 11:30 p.m. according to authorities in a report from the Post.

Responders managed to rush Colquhoun to the Kings County Hospital Center but were later on pronounced dead.

The identity of the 17-year-old was not immediately released. He was taken into custody and the charges against the teenager have yet to be known as of this writing. Latin Times was unable to verify this report.

It was added that the teenager had no previous criminal history. However, the report further added that the boy was an alleged emotionally disturbed person background.

In a report from the NY Daily News, it was added that the teen had also attacked his mother. The mom reportedly called 911 but the teen had already left when police arrived.

The mother would step out to go shopping after that, only to receive a call from her daughter that the teen had returned.

“He’s back!” the daughter told her mother, sources said. “He’s back!”

It was at this point that the teen allegedly killed his sister. Neighbors claim that the teenager had used a wheelchair.

“All the time he’s fighting with his mom, so that’s why the police come every two or three days,” a neighbor named Hossain Arif said.

“I think he’s mentally sick,” the 23-year-old added.

This comes days after a 27-year-old named Kyron Bracey was killed after he was stabbed in the chest following a fight on Saturday.

Bracey left New York City to find success in college and business and was returning to attend a family reunion over the weekend. But the Harlem street incident spoiled all that. The 27-year-old died at the Harlem hospital, per another report from the NY Daily News.
