RICHMOND, Virginia – A man is behind bars for a knife attack on an assisted living facility in downtown Richmond that killed one woman and injured another last Friday.
Officials said Quincy Rawlings stabbed two women to death just before 1 p.m. at the facility on the 100 block of Jefferson Street near the Richmond Police Headquarters on Grace Street
The incident prompted WTVR CBS 6 to take a close look at this facility.
According to the Virginia Department of Social Services website, there has been a pattern of inspection violations in recent years.
The most recent one happened in June and also involved a knife fight.
The report said that one resident somehow got a knife and stabbed another resident who then had to undergo surgery for his injuries.
Earlier this week, WTVR CBS 6 reached out to the facility and spoke briefly with Administrator Josephine Gatling.
Gatling said at the time that they were busy “dealing with the families”.
When WTVR asked CBS 6 if the staff would do anything to ensure the knife stabbing didn’t happen again, Gatling hung up.
No details about the circumstances of the stabbing last week were known until Thursday evening.
Rawlings is due to appear in court on November 15th.
