A gruesome murder-suicide incident has taken place in the Upper West Side apartment where two brothers lived.

60-year-old Dino Horton has knifed his older brother, 65-year-old Paul Horton, in the apartment's bathroom before taking his own life by hanging himself in front of the bathroom.

According to reports, police were called to the apartment for at least three times during the weeks leading to the incident. The brothers have been arguing over rent money and the upcoming eviction from their apartment.

Responding officers reported finding items tossed around the residence and a bloody pipe at the scene, which suggested that a fight has preceded the horrific murder-suicide.

The investigation into this incident is ongoing by New York authorities.
