North Knox County Man Killed by Brother
The Knox County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home at 7253 Meadowbrook Circle around 2:40 a.m. on Saturday morning after a man was found lying in a pool of blood on the front porch.
According to the initial investigation, 27-year-old Steven Wayne Brooks of 7253 Meadowbrook Circle and his brother, 33-year-old Bobby Allen Johnson, also of 7253 Meadowbrook Circle, had been involved in a physical altercation. After the fight, Brooks left the residence. Johnson’s fiancée and another family member, both living in the home, discovered his body on the front porch and called 911. Johnson was transported by Rural Metro to Tennova North where he was pronounced dead.
While KCSO officers were on the scene, Brooks returned to the home and was taken into custody without incident. He is charged with second degree murder and is being held in the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility on a $150,000 bond.
