CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - State Sen. Creigh Deeds has made his first public statement since being released from a hospital where he was treated for stab wounds inflicted by his son, who later killed himself.
    
Deeds said in a tweet: "I am alive so must live. Some wounds won't heal. Your prayers and your friendship are important to me."
    
University of Virginia Medical Center spokesman Eric Swensen says Deeds was released Friday morning. Deeds was airlifted from his Bath County home Tuesday after police say his son stabbed him multiple times and then shot himself with a rifle.
    
Police are still investigating what prompted the altercation between Deeds and his 24-year-old son, Gus. Media outlets report that an emergency custody order was issued for Gus Deeds, but he was released because no psychiatric bed was available.
