At 4:06 p.m. today Bedford County 911 dispatchers received a call from a female who was yelling and screaming for the police and then dispatchers lost contact with her. The call came from a cell phone and dispatchers plotted the call to 1625 Teass Terrace. At 4:13 p.m. Bedford County deputies arrived on the scene. After arriving deputies found a female victim who had been assaulted with an ax. Shortly thereafter, deputies reported that the male who had assaulted the female had been shot and requested rescue units. The female victim was transported to Bedford Memorial Hospital by ambulance. Deputies performed CPR on the male suspect until rescue units arrived and he was pronounced dead. The Virginia State Police were requested to respond to the scene and will be investigating the incident.
Since the Virginia State Police are conducting the investigation the Bedford County Sheriff’s Office will not be making any further releases.
