Roommates' quarrel over radio leads to stabbing, attempted murder charge

ST. PETERSBURG — An alcohol-fueled quarrel over a radio station led to a stabbing Wednesday night at St. Petersburg mobile home park.

One of the men, Willie B. Brown, was arrested early Thursday on an attempted murder charge while his roommate, Abraham Shedrack, remained hospitalized with life-threatening injuries, authorities said.

Brown, 58, and Shedrack, 72, argued over a radio station about 8 p.m. Wednesday in the trailer they shared in the Palace Mobile Home Park, 2500 54th Ave. N, according to sheriff's deputies.

At some point, Brown stabbed Shedrack at least 10 times, deputies said.

Shedrack was taken to Bayfront Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, officials said. Brown was booked in the Pinellas County Jail and held without bail.
