Fairfax County police say a 37-year-old woman has been stabbed and killed at a Springfield area restaurant.
Police spokeswoman Officer Tawny Wright says police were called Wednesday night to the 5T Bar and Grill where they found the woman dead inside. Wright says investigators believe a man who was an acquaintance of the woman's attacked her with a weapon and then tried to harm himself with the same weapon.
The 40-year-old man was taken into custody. His injuries were not life-threatening.
The restaurant is in the Brookfield Plaza mall on Spring Garden Drive.
