Senator Creigh Deeds is hospitalized in critical condition with stab wounds, and his son Gus has died from a gunshot wound, police tell the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Creigh is receiving treatment at the UVA Medical Center. Police don’t yet know what happened. Creigh is, of course, the area’s state senator.

FB rumor mill says ‘domestic dispute’, but take that for what its worth.
This is incredibly messed up, whatever happened.
The Times-Dispatch has more on the mental health of Gus Deeds:
“The son was evaluated Monday at Bath County Hospital, Cropper said, but was released because no psychiatric bed could be located across a wide area of western Virginia.”
I hope that sentence will get the appropriate attention from people in the Commonwealth who are in a position to do something about it.
And hoping for the best for Sen. Deeds.
BBC says authorities think it was an attempted murder – suicide.
