The brother of C.J., Clayton Beathard, 22, was fatally stabbed early Saturday morning at 2:50 a.m.

22-year-old Clayton Beathard and 21-year-old Paul Trapeni III, were taken to Vanderbilt Medical University Center, where they later died.

The third victim was treated and released.

Clayton was a quarterback at Long Island University.
