(Scroll down for video) Two people became very angry when a father of four children told them to turn down their music because it was inappropriate for young children, according to police in California.

Hayward police said that they have arrested 22-year-old Frankie Archuleta and 25-year-old Jesse Archuleta, after being accused of the stabbing death of Tyrone Griffin Jr., 36.

Both suspects were charged with murder. They were booked into the Santa Rita Jail, and they are being held without bail.

According to the criminal complaint, Griffin had gone to the Target store to buy gifts for his four children whom he loved very much.

A confrontation with the two suspects broke out inside the Target store located on 2499 Whipple Road shortly before the stabbing.

Police were called to the Target at around 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, and found the victim on the floor with at least one stab wound.

He was taken to the Eden Hospital, where he later died.

The wife of the victim, Nicole Simmons, said that Griffin had asked the two suspects to turn down the music they were playing on their cellphones because it was inappropriate for children.

Griffin was shopping together with his two younger children. A fight ensued and Griffin was stabbed. Simmons said that she’s just trying to cope with the fact that she became a single mother to four children.

She said that Griffin was her first and only love, and she knew him since they were 15 years old.
