A 53-year-old Yorktown man is facing a second-degree murder charge in connection with the Saturday morning stabbing death of another man.

Michael Alan Bush is being held in the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail, said Shelley Ward, spokeswoman for the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office.

Bush was initially taken to a local hospital for an undisclosed injury. Information on his bond was not immediately released.

Sheriff’s deputies were sent to the Colonial Trailer Court in the 6300 block of George Washington Memorial Highway at around 3:17 a.m.

There, they found Gregory Mullins, 49, also of Yorktown, with multiple stab wounds “lying in the street,” Ward said.

“Deputies immediately started CPR until medics arrived and transported the victim to a local hospital,” Ward wrote in an email.

Mullins died a short time after arriving at Riverside Regional Hospital, Ward said.

No other information about the incident was immediately released.

Authorities are asking anyone who may have information about the circumstances surrounding the stabbing to call the Crime Line at 888-LOCK-U-UP.
