Police: Son Saws Off Own Hands After Stabbing Father
REDDING, Calif. (KTLA) — A father and son were both hospitalized Tuesday with life-threatening injuries after a bloody family feud.
What began as a verbal altercation between the two men escalated into a physical confrontation.
Jason Dunn, 27, was accused of stabbing his father, 59-year-old Gregory, multiple times with a pair of scissors, deputies said.
Dunn then mutilated himself by using a radial-arm saw to sever his hands, according to a news release from Shasta County Sheriff’s officials.
Neighbor Gary Rinehart told CNN affiliate KRCR that he saw both men being wheeled from the scene into separate ambulances.
He said the son, had “a lot of blood at the end of his arms, like his hands weren’t there.”
The father, had “blood in the upper area,” Rinehart said.
No charges were filed in the case as of Tuesday afternoon.
