A 26-year-old West Palm Beach man died Tuesday after being stabbed multiple times in a road-rage incident along Interstate 95 in Riviera Beach, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

The fatal incident happened at approximately 3 p.m. on I-95 southbound near the Blue Heron Boulevard exit.

The victim, identified as Duvarn N. Fraser, was taken to St. Mary's Hospital with critical injuries and pronounced dead at 9:36 p.m.

FHP said a witness called 911 advising there was a fight on the right shoulder of Interstate 95 north of Blue Heron Boulevard.

The caller advised two brothers, identified as Mario Rene Briceno, 44, of Lake Worth and Jose Rene Briceno Escobar, 49, of West Palm Beach, were fighting with Fraser.

During the course of this fight, Fraser was subsequently stabbed several times.

FHP said when the first trooper arrived, he was able to gain compliance from the two brothers.

Once the backup troopers arrived, the brothers were detained for questioning.

Fraser suffered multiple stab wounds in the fatal incident.

A knife and a firearm was recovered at the scene. The brothers were transported to FHP's headquarters in Lake Worth but later released after being interviewed.

Investigators said a gun was found in a car but was not used. It is unclear which vehicle the weapon was in, but FHP believes the victim was the one who brandished a gun after the accident. 

No charges have been filed, but FHP said the investigation is pending.
