BATH COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) – Virginia Senator Creigh Deeds is being treated for “serious injuries” after he was stabbed “multiple times” inside his Bath County home, according to Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller.
“After the stabbing, Senator Deeds left the scene on foot and walked down the hill of his residence to Route 42,” according to Virginia State Police. “The injured senator was spotted and picked up by a cousin who was driving along Route 42. The two drove to the cousin’s residence where the 911 call was placed to the sheriff’s office.”
Deeds was flown to the University of Virginia Medical Center where his condition was not released. The senator’s son, 24-year-old Gus Deeds, died in the home from a gunshot wound, Geller said during a Tuesday afternoon press conference.
Virginia State Police were called to Sen. Deeds’ Millboro-area home about 7:25 a.m. Tuesday.
“Troopers arrived to find Sen. Deeds stabbed multiple times about the head and upper torso,” Geller said. “Senator Deeds’ son, Austin “Gus” Deeds, was found inside the residence, suffering from life-threatening injuries associated with a gunshot wound. Despite efforts by trooper and first responders, he died at the scene.”
The investigation into the motive and sequence of events regarding Tuesday’s violence remained under investigation, Geller said. She added it was not yet known if Gus Deeds died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, however, she said police were not currently looking for a suspect in the shooting.
Sen. Deeds has been able to speak to investigators, however Geller would not share what was said.
