Sen. Creigh Deeds, D-Bath, is in critical condition after being stabbed in his home and his son Gus is dead from a gunshot wound, law enforcement sources told the Richmond Times-Dispatch this morning.

Deeds is being treated at the University of Virginia Medical Center.

Authorities said they are trying to determine the sequence of events at the Deeds home in Bath County early today.

Further details were not immediately

Supposedly, the son stabbed his father and then shot himself dead.

Fox doesn't have that info yet.

NBC is carrying it: http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Senator-Creigh-Deeds-Assaulted-in-Bath-County-Home--232498761.html

The source is "Democratic sources" though - so wait for the police report.

Former Virginia governor candidate Creigh Deeds is fighting for his life after he was brutally stabbed by his own 24-year-old son, who then committed suicide - just one day after he was committed to a psychiatric ward but released because there were no beds available.

Deeds, a state senator, is in critical condition at University of Virginia hospital after he was found stumbling away from his home in rural Bath County, Virginia, by a cousin who happened to be driving by.

Deeds was stabbed multiple times in the head and torso and lost large amounts of blood.

The veteran Democratic state legislator's son Gus was found shot dead, as well.

Gus had been evaluated by psychiatrists at a mental hospital on Monday, but could not be committed because there was no room at any mental health wards in all of western Virginia, according to reports.

you would think with Deeds being a senator he would have been able to get around the no bed situation?
