2 deputies injured by inmate at US courthouse

Authorities say an inmate shot a deputy and stabbed another in a holding cell at a courthouse.
Fauquier County sheriff's Lt. James Hartman says 30-year-old George Golder Phillips shot one deputy in the leg, and stabbed the other in the face around 1 p.m. Wednesday.
Phillips is suspected of robbing banks in the area in northern Virginia and was taken to the Fauquier County courthouse for a hearing.
Deputy County Administrator Catherine Heritage says the deputies were taken to hospitals in stable condition.
Hartman says the inmate took the gun from one of the deputies, but it's not clear what he used to inflict the stab wound.
