Virginia police are investigating a stabbing attack on a senator as an attempted murder and suicide by his son. Creigh Deeds (VA-D) was reported to be in fair condition after being hospitalized from stab wounds Tuesday.
Authorities said Deeds left the home on foot after being stabbed multiple times and walked until he was spotted by his cousin, who was passing by. They went to the cousin’s house to call 911. Deeds was then taken to the hospital. His son, Gus, was found dead at their home with a gunshot wound to the head say police officials. The case is being looked at as an attempted murder suicide.
