(Updated at 3:25 p.m.) A man in McLean died last night after reportedly being stabbed by his stepson, Fairfax County police say.

Officers were called to a house in the 1200 block of Colonial Road in McLean at 11:03 p.m. in response to a domestic call involving two stabbing victims, Fairfax County Police Department Second Lt. James Curry said in a 1:48 a.m. update.

In the call, a woman said her son had stabbed her and her husband.

The son — identified in a report released this afternoon as 39-year-old Adam Timothy Jackson Jr. — was leaving the house and taken into custody when officers arrived.

“Upon searching the home, they found the husband suffering trauma to the upper body,” Curry said. “Life-saving measures were attempted but sadly he was declared deceased at the home.”

According to police, the victim was 68-year-old Alan Miller Kaufman, Jackson’s stepfather.

The woman was transported to a hospital with injuries that police said were not considered life-threatening.

“The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy in the coming days to determine the cause and manner of death,” the FCPD said. “Detectives continue to conduct interviews, collect video surveillance and process evidence recovered from the scene to determine the circumstances that led up to the fatal stabbing.”

The department’s Major Crimes Bureau can be contacted at 703-246-7800, option 2. Anonymous tips are accepted through Crime Solvers by phone (1-866-411-TIPS), and online.
