NASHVILLE, Tenn. (KRON) – The San Francisco 49ers back up quarterback C.J. Beathard is suffering from a tragic loss Saturday morning.

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

According to police, the stabbings appear to be the result of an argument over a woman that began inside Dogwood Bar in Nashville.

The argument continued outside where three men were stabbed.

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.

Police released a surveillance photo of the suspect and are asking for the public’s help in identifying the man.
