(Updated at 11:35 a.m.) One person was killed and another hospitalized with life-threatening injuries that proved fatal in an apparent domestic violence incident at a home near Frying Pan Farm Park earlier this morning, police said.

Police believe a woman was stabbed in a home on the 13200 block of Stable Brook Way in Herndon. Preliminarily, someone living in the home shot the suspect, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

“The stabber was shot and killed by an occupant of the home,” an FCPD spokesperson said.

Police later reported that the woman who was stabbed died at the hospital.

There were four people in the home at the time of the incident, all of whom are known to each other, Police Chief Kevin Davis said in an 11 a.m. briefing. The family also had a little girl who is now with police.

According to Davis, police haven’t determined yet which individual was responsible for the stabbing or the shooting.
