Two brothers, 26-year-old Kirk Howard and 19-year-old Kurson Howard were hospitalized over the weekend after they inflicted stab wounds on each other. The incident occurred in Belize City on Friday night when they were both socializing at their house. An argument reportedly unfolded which escalated to Kurson pulling out a knife and stabbing Kirk in the leg. However, Kirk managed to retrieve the knife and stabbed Kurson on his arm and lower neck. According to the mother she was inside when she heard the commotion but did not think it would lead to them stabbing each other.
Mother: “As I said I don’t really know what happened, I can only say what I heard. I heard that they were rumbling outside and they started to argue between their girlfriends- well one of the girlfriends is sick or what we would call crazy and that is what they were arguing over, they had a big argument over that and they started to hit each other with boards and sticks and so. I don’t know which one of them drew a knife because as I said I didn’t see because I was inside because it was the time for me to make supper. So I went and made my tea and I went and told them ‘what is happening outside?’ he said ‘ma, you don’t have to worry about that because you already know we don’t want you outside.’ So my other son locked the door and said he wasn’t going outside but he came back outside to get the smaller children to get inside. So after they got inside one of them said one of them got stabbed, well I thought it was minor thing we weren’t thinking it was something really happening or something like that so I don’t know. After that I heard someone say that they got a call that one of them is at the hospital and one of them is at the police station, well I’m not really sure what went on after that. I heard the commotion outside because you could hear the noise and the argument between the two of them, both of them, but as I said I wasn’t thinking that it was going to go far like that because they’re always arguing, sometimes it’s off a little game because they like to play ball.“
