A man is dead after his brother stabbed him over an argument about video games, police said.

Mesa police say that at about 5:46 p.m. Friday, David Ramirez, 24, approached his brother Felipe Barajas Ramirez, 28, in their apartment near Country Club Drive and Southern Avenue and said he wanted to play video games.

But Felipe declined and said he was watching television.

An argument escalated to a fight and David was stabbed by a 4-inch folding knife that Felipe was fiddling with before the altercation, court documents said.
