Very sad news out of Stafford County - four gunshot victims. Two adults deceased, a 3 year-old and 4 year-old with gunshot wounds to the head. CPR in progress on the 4 year-old.

I came in late on this incident... as fredva posted, this is sounding like a very terrible situation. They were doing CPR on the 4 year old boy, and were thus unable to transport by air. I live within earshot of Shannon Airport, and I heard AirCare 2 returning to base after being unable to transport. They took him by ground to Mary Washington Hospital instead. The 3 year old girl was transported out by air, so hopefully she is in better shape.

They had called in at least 3 and possibly 4 helicopters, but released the last 2 before they arrived.

Since I came in late, I heard no details, but with a deceased adult male and a deceased adult female, this sure has the makings for a domestic murder/suicide. There was no discussion of any surviving suspects. I expect there will be much media coverage in the morning. I would be surprised if either Richmond or DC were able to pick it up for their 11:00 news tonight.

The crew on the radio acted professionally all the way, but I could hear stress at times. I know they are trained and conditioned to disassociate during these sorts of incidents, but wow, I can't even imagine how terrible it would be to go through this sort of thing.

Many thoughts and prayers are needed all around tonight and in the coming days.

22:56 At this time it sounds like the ground crew is going through a hotwash.
23:02 Channel 9 in DC had a very small blurb, saying they had a crew on scene and would update later in the program.

Sadly, the Washington Post is reporting that both children died.

Very few details have been confirmed.

It's a busy night... I just heard AirCare fly over my house again, and they are planning to land a helicopter in the parking lot of Salem Fields Community Church on Gordon Road in Spotsylvania County in response to an accident on Chancellor Road.
