Police: Willie Pittman stabbed to death by his younger brother during fighting in Brainerd home

Willie Pittman was fatally stabbed by his younger brother during a domestic fight early Saturday in the Brainerd neighborhood, authorities said.

Pittman, 33, had gotten into an argument with his 28-year-old brother the night before, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

When Pittman returned to his home in the 9200 block of South Lowe about 5:15 a.m., his brother was there and they started fighting again, authorities said.

The younger brother pulled out a “cutting instrument” and stabbed Pittman in the left arm pit and lower back, authorities said. Pittman was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 11:24 a.m.

The younger man stayed at the scene and was being questioned by detectives Saturday afternoon, police said.
