Description of Incident:
A 33-year-old North Lauderdale man stabbed two family members before fatally stabbing himself over the weekend. Broward Sheriff’s Office homicide detectives are investigating.
Just after 10 a.m. Sunday morning, deputies responded to a home at 7703 S.W. 3rd Street regarding a possible stabbing. Brandon Holloway’s family had noticed him acting erratically in the home’s front yard while holding a knife. When his father, Kevin Holloway, went outside to calm him, Brandon stabbed him.
Devionshe Christian, the suspect’s stepmother, ran into the yard to help Kevin Holloway. Brandon stabbed her as well. Despite having been wounded, she was able to run back into the home and call for help.
Brandon Holloway then stabbed himself repeatedly outside his family’s home.
North Lauderdale Fire Rescue transported all three to a local hospital. Kevin and Brandon Holloway died at the hospital. Christian remains hospitalized. Her injuries were not life threatening.
Anyone with further information is asked to contact BSO Detective James Hayes at 954-321-4231 or Broward Crime Stoppers, anonymously, at 954-493-TIPS (8477) or www.browardcrimestoppers.org
