The man, 21, was adopted and home from college.

A 21-year-old man is in custody on suspicion that he stabbed both his adoptive fathers after an argument in their Sherman Oaks home early Tuesday morning. 

Police were called about 1 a.m. to the 4600 block of Burnet Avenue. The 21-year-old stabbed both his fathers with a pocket knife after an argument broke out, according to police. 

It is unknown what the argument was about. 

Both victims were rushed to a hospital in critical condition, police said.

The man was taken into custody at the scene, was calm and admitted to stabbing both his parents, police said.
