A man was fatally stabbed following Tennessee State University's homecoming game at LP Field Saturday and investigators say his brother may be responsible.

Witnesses told Metro police that Jesse "Juice" Alexander, 26, and Joshua Alexander, 38, were involved a domestic-related argument before Joshua fatally stabbed Jesse.

Police said Joshua Alexander, a Nashville firefighter at Station 31, drove away from the scene.

According to Jesse Alexander's Facebook page, he was a member of the U.S. Army and once attended TSU.

The stabbing happened just after 8 p.m.  Police said Jesse Alexander approached an officer telling him he'd been stabbed in the chest.

After Alexander collapsed, medics responded and transported him to Baptist Hospital where he died.

TSU fans and alumni were saddened to learn of Saturday's tragedy and worry it may reflect poorly on the school.

"It always gets put on Tennessee State, this happened at Tennessee State homecoming," Lisa Hicks told Nashville's News 2.  "Unfortunately, this is something that happened at LP Field while our game was going on but I just think we get bad feedback and bad talk about TSU."

Detectives are continuing to identify and interview witnesses.

Police said Joshua Alexander is not in custody and no charges have been sought thus far.

Police said they are still trying to determine what exactly took place between the two brothers.
