Brother of Dimitrious 'Jimmy' Gargasoulas in a stable condition

CREATED ON // Tuesday, 24 January 2017 Author // Rachel Cook

The brother of Dimitrious 'Jimmy' Gargasoulas, Angelo Gargasoulas, is reported to be in a stable condition after he was stabbed by his brother last Friday.

Angelo was stabbed in the head and chest after an alleged argument with his brother. He was rushed to hospital where he was put into an induced coma and was in a critical condition.

Fairfax now report Angelo is in a stable condition.

It is believed Dimitrious ‘Jimmy’ Gargasoulas did not accept his brother being gay and 7 News reported that before the attack Gargasoulas  told his mother, “I’m going to kill all gays and poofters and lesbians.”

After stabbing his brother Gargasoulas allegedly mowed down dozens of pedestrians in Melbourne’s CBD killing five people.

Gargasoulas has been charged with five counts of murder but did not attend court to hear the charges as his lawyer claimed he was “unwell”.

There has been an out-pouring of support for Angelo since Friday on social media with friends posting well-wishes.

One friend wrote:

‘…your smile, constant positivity and vitality always rubbed off on everyone around you. You are a strong and beautiful human. Please stay with us! There is so much love for you in this world! My thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.’

Another wrote:

‘Angelo, I am so saddened to hear you are fighting for your life whilst only trying to prevent injury and harms way to not only yourself but your family and everyone in general. Tragedy has emerged since your painful experience, I wish you a quick recovery and I pray yourself and family get through this difficult time. My prays are with you. Be strong.’
