A Virginia teen is dead after being shot and killed by a sheriff’s deputy.

State police say Fauquier County deputies were called to an early morning crash yesterday when they found the car had been abandoned. The investigation led them to a nearby home.

Inside the home, police say a 17-year-old stabbed one of the deputies. That’s when another deputy fired his gun, killing the teen.

The deputy who was stabbed was treated on the scene.
