One man is dead and another critically injured after a stabbing at an assisted living home in Falls Church.

Fairfax County Police spokesman Rich Perez says investigators believe the man died of self-inflicted stab wounds.

Perez says police believe the man stabbed the other resident first, then turned the knife on himself.

The man who survived has been transported to an area hospital.

The incident happened around 9:30 a.m. at the Lockwood House in the 600 block of North Madison Street.

Perez says authorities aren’t sure what prompted the stabbing.

Police say both men lived on the same floor of the retirement home. The identification of both men is not available at this time.
