SAN FERNANDO, Calif. (KTLA) — A 22-year-old man is in police custody after he allegedly stabbed his grandmother to death with a barbecue fork.
According to Los Angeles Police Department officials, officers were called to a home in the 11100 block of Rincon Avenue around 9 a.m. Sunday.
The suspect, identified as Joe Calderon, lived with his grandparents at the home, and police say that the trio had gotten into an argument on Saturday night.

She was declared dead at the scene by paramedics. Her identity has not been released.
Calderon was arrested at the scene and several weapons, including the barbecue fork, were confiscated.
