This article is so confusing:
1. Article Title: 15-year old arrested.... but the 16 year old brother was the one that repeatedly stabbed his 15 year old brother (victim).
2. The title makes it sound like a 15 year old stabbed someone else after his brother was stabbed. Just make the news article title: 16 year-old arrested for attempted murder after stabbing his 15-year old brother.
