BREAKING VA Dem State Senator Stabbed Multiple Times
From the Washington Post:
Virginia state Sen. R. Creigh Deeds (D-Bath) was seriously injured early Tuesday in an assault at his house in Bath County, west of Charlottesville. A second person inside the home was found dead, according to Virginia State Police.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that Deeds was stabbed and critically injured and that the dead person is his son, Gus, who suffered a gunshot wound. The Washington Post could not confirm that Deeds’s son was the deceased victim.
Creigh Deeds was a gubernatorial Democratic candidate in 2009.
And an update:
BREAKING NEWS update, 12:14 p.m.: Virginia State Police said Sen. R. Creigh Deeds was stabbed multiple times and seriously injured at his home early Tuesday morning. His son, 24-year-old Gus Deeds, was fatally shot. Police are not searching for any suspects. This story will update shortly.
Let’s hope that “not searching for any suspects” is a typo.
