Virginia State Police said they were not searching for any suspects in the stabbing of state Sen. Creigh Deeds and the killing of his son Tuesday.

Deeds was stabbed multiple times and his 24-year-old son, Gus, was found shot to death when authorities arrived at the politician's home in Millboro, Va., police spokeswoman Corrine Geller told reporters at a televised news conference.

Creigh Deeds was flown to the University of Virginia Health System Hospital where a spokeswoman told the Los Angeles Times that he was in critical condition.

Geller said police were still sorting out the sequence of events but said it was clear that no suspects were being sought in the incident, indicating that the senator and his son were only people involved in the deadly events.
