Authorities say a man stabbed his brother in the shoulder this morning during an argument over their father.
Witnesses told police that Derek Dellinger stabbed his brother, Scotty, with a knife shortly after 9 a.m. outside a home on Emmanuel Church Road near Conover.
The brothers argued about their father, who died in December, said Lt. Deryl McCarty, of the Catawba County Sheriff's Office. Alcohol was involved in the altercation, McCarty said.
The stabbing happened at a home between Valley Springs Drive and New Horizon Ministries.
Authorities are still looking for Derek, who they say ran from the scene with the knife.
