Salem Police say 58-year old Larry Bush of Salem was stabbed by his brother, 50-year-old Jon Bush after an altercation just before 4:00 p.m.
One witness told Salem-News.com that Salem police officers and Salem firefighters tried valiantly to save the victim by performing CPR and rendering other medical aid, but they were not successful.
The incident location was on Niles Ave NE, is just off Blossom Drive NE.
Another local resident, Bryan Plate, said drug activity is very common in the neighborhood, and on more than one occasion while walking his dog in a nearby field, he has found used drug paraphernalia. He and his wife fell on hard times and this was the only area in Salem they could afford, and they are working very hard to get out of that neighborhood.
Salem Police have not yet said if drugs played any role leading up to the deadly attack. An autopsy will be scheduled to determine the exact cause of death.
Jon Bush was arrested and charged with Murder and lodged in the Marion County Correctional Facility.
