CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - One person was found dead and another person was found with life-threatening injuries at a Chesterfield hotel on Thursday afternoon.

The Chesterfield Fire Department says crews responded to the Days Inn on West Hundred Road just before 1 p.m. The initial call was for an unknown problem, and when they arrived they found the two victims.

"I looked around the corner and there he was laying out there in the road," said Tim Bondurant who works at Auto World next door to the Days Inn.

Next door at Auto World, employees say a woman who works at the Days Inn came over to their business, distraught, to tell them what happened.

"She was upset and crying," said Bondurant.

Police say a man was found unconscious in the parking lot, covered in blood. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. A woman was found dead in one of the hotel rooms.

"It's disturbing to find out it was so close," said Tom Laudenslager, who was staying at the hotel. " it's just disturbing, what people are doing to each other."

Laudenslager and other guests were surprised to find out the crime took place in the middle of the day, many of them not hearing anything or returning to their rooms to see a heavy police presence.

Police are not looking for any suspects at this time, but they are still investigating to see if it was domestic-related.

"We're going back, canvassing the area, going back to look at surveillance footage from the hotel and surrounding businesses just to make sure," said Capt. Louth with Chesterfield Police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Chesterfield Police at 804-748-1251.
