'Blood everywhere': Neighbours' shock over alleged murder

NEIGHBOURS of a man allegedly murdered by his brother in a quiet Buderim street are this morning still in shock at the ordeal. 

A 57-year-old Buderim man has been charged with murder for allegedly stabbing his brother in a late night disturbance at a block of units on Hamilton St.

Neighbour Benjamin Fox said the incident shut down the street for hours with multiple emergency services responding.

"It was full-on. The whole street was packed," Mr Fox said.

"The street was pretty hectic, I was just hoping they didn't wake my kids up," he said, referring to the response by emergency services.

Mr Fox said another resident in the street jumped the fence in attempt to save the man's life, who was lying with "blood everywhere".

A young couple who live in a neighbouring unit said the brothers "had not lived there very long" and that it had been a difficult night.

"We haven't got much sleep, we're still in shock I think," they said.

A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman confirmed the victim and his alleged attacker were brothers.

She said the incident was still an open investigation, but police were not looking for any other suspects and believed the person they had charged was the only offender.

The 57-year-old man was due to face Maroochydore Magistrates Court this morning on one count of murder.
