'Closer Than Most Brothers': Chiefs Cornerback L’Jarius Sneed’s Brother Fatally Stabbed
Kansas City Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed’s older brother, whom he credits with raising him, was fatally stabbed by a woman in northern Louisiana, police say.
Police say T’Qarontarion “TQ” Harrison, 32, was stabbed in his Minden, Louisiana home Friday night (Dec. 10) and “died from a single stab wound to his back that punctured his lung,” KTBS-TV reports.
Police Chief Steven Cropper said Angela Washington, 47, was arrested and charged with second-degree homicide. A motive has not been released.
Chief Cropper said Harrison tried to drive himself to the Minden Medical Center after being stabbed. Harrison eventually crashed his vehicle on the backside of the hospital. He was then transferred 30 miles away to the Ochsner LSU Health in Shreveport, where he succumbed to his injuries after an emergency procedure.
On Saturday (Dec. 11) the Chiefs placed Sneed on its injury report. In a Tweet, the team stated “he is questionable for Sunday’s game for non-injury related reasons (personal).” On Sunday (Dec. 12), the team updated their report and ruled Sneed out for the game against the Las Vegas Raiders.
In an interview with the Kansas City Star, Sneed credited Harrison for raising him while his parents were in prison. Harrison, at age 9, walked his brothers to school, changed diapers, and ironed their clothes. Harrison told the newspaper that he described Sneed and his relationship as “closer than most brothers because of what we went through in life.”
