    A 25-year-old man fatally shot a 28-year-old man who stabbed the younger man's brother Tuesday evening during a fight at a gas station in the DeLeon Springs neighborhood, the Volusia County Sheriff's Office said.

    Deputies were called shortly after 7:30 p.m. to the Valero gas station on North U.S. Highway 17 near West Baxter Street after Tony Berriozabal stabbed a man before being shot by Jesus Romero, the stabbing victim's brother, Sheriff's Office spokesman Andrew Gant said.

    Berriozabal died at the scene, Gant said.

    Witnesses took the stabbing victim to Florida Hospital DeLand, where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, he said.

    "The shooter remained on scene," Gant said.

    It's unknown what led up to the fight.

    The stabbing victim's identity has not been disclosed.

    Officials said no charges have been filed yet, because Volusia County Sheriff Mike Chitwood is waiting to see if Florida's "stand your ground" law applies to the case.

    No other details were given.
