CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) — Virginia State Police say a man holding a woman at knifepoint at a Christiansburg home was shot by a deputy after he began attacking the woman.
Christiansburg police officers and Montgomery County sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call reporting a domestic disturbance Saturday and found a man holding a woman at knifepoint.
An officer and deputy tried to negotiate with the man, but he refused to cooperate. When he began to attack the woman, police say a deputy fired and struck the man.
The man was flown to a hospital, where police say he was still being treated for serious injuries Sunday.
The woman was taken to another hospital with serious injuries. No law enforcement personnel were injured.
