Police have identified the victim and suspect in a deadly stabbing in Corona late Monday afternoon as 24-year-old Jesse Maturino (v), and 29-year-old Brandon Barber (s).

Corona police say officers were called to the 1300 block of Turquoise Drive just before 5 p.m. to investigate a family disturbance call but on the way to the scene, dispatch relayed that a witness was reporting one man stabbing another.

Barber was identified as the suspect by witnesses. Police say he ran into a nearby home after stabbing Maturino before officers arrived.

Police found Maturino in the middle of the street and despite attempts to save his life, emergency responders pronounced Maturino dead at the scene.

Two other victims, 47-year-old Miguel Maturino Jr. and 23-year-old Alex Necoeche, were rushed to the hospital with significant injuries related to the stabbing. They are expected to survive, according to officials.

Barber was arrested without incident on suspicion of homicide and assault with a deadly weapon. Detectives later learned Maturino and Barber were half brothers.

It's unknown what led to the dispute. The investigation is ongoing.
