    Virginia TV reporter, photographer killed in shooting during live interview

    (CNN)A manhunt is underway for a gunman who fatally shot a local news reporter and photographer on live television during an interview outside Moneta, Virginia, on Wednesday morning.

    Alison Parker was interviewing a woman at approximately 6:45 a.m. when shots rang out. Both women screamed.

    As the camera fell to the ground, the audience caught the briefest glimpse of a man who appeared to pointing a gun toward the downed cameraman.

    The station cut away to a shocked anchor, Kimberly McBroom, back in the studio.

    Parker, 24, and Adam Ward, 27, were killed in the shooting at Bridgewater Plaza near Moneta, the station reported later.
    he woman being interviewed, Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, was shot in the back and is in surgery, said Barb Nocera, the chamber's special projects manager said.

    The gunman is believed to have fired six or seven times, WDBJ General Manager Jeff Marks said.

    He remains on the loose. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is participating in the manhunt, while the ATF and FBI are participating in the investigation. Area schools are on lockdown.

    Authorities know the identity of the man believed to be the shooter, a law enforcement official told CNN.
    "We do not know the motive. We do not know who the killer is," Marks said. "We do know the Franklin County sheriff ... they are working very diligently to track down both the motive and the person responsible for this terrible crime against two fine journalists," he said during the station's coverage of the shooting.

    The station does not believe that the interview subject was injured, Marks said.

    "Our hearts are broken," Marks said on air, explaining that Parker's and Ward's colleagues are "holding back tears."

    McBroom described Parker as a "rock star" and said, "You throw anything at that girl and she could do it."

    Another journalist at the anchor's desk said Ward was engaged to be married to morning show producer at WDBJ, Melissa Ott, and Ward recently told her, "I'm going to get out of news. I think I'm going to do something else."
    Parker is the morning reporter for the Roanoke station and a native of Virginia, having spent most of her life outside Martinsville. She started with WDBJ as an intern, her biography on the station's website says.

    She previously worked with another CNN affiliate, WCTI, in Jacksonville, North Carolina, near Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune.

    She is a graduate of James Madison University's School of Media Arts and Design in Harrisonburg.

    CNN's Jason Hanna, Ashley Fantz, Brian Stelter and Mariano Castillo contributed to this report.

    The poor reporter screaming, attempting to flee.

    What fucking right does anyone have to just snuff out a human life like that?
    To ruin all the lives connected to those people, as well.

    It keeps happening, it keeps getting worse, and it just pisses me off.

    These are mainly young kids that participate in this sort of convention and

    Beyond disgusting.

    Bryce Williams: A meticulous plan for a live televised murder


    A disturbed mind brimming with rage, a professional media career and newly purchased guns. Vester Lee Flanagan II combined them into a real-time murder show that he choreographed in detail.

    On Wednesday, Flanagan shot dead TV reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, in Roanoke, Virginia, while Parker was live on air on WDBJ via Ward's camera, a video of the incident showed.

    Flanagan, a former TV reporter himself who went by the pseudonym Bryce Williams, also wounded Vicki Gardner, head of a local chamber of commerce, whom Parker was interviewing.

    As Flanagan gunned them down with six or seven shots, viewers were subject to it live, as were colleagues in WDBJ's control room. Ward's fiancee was one of them, said General Manager Jeff Marks.


    Flanagan, a fired former reporter

    Flanagan knew Ward. The shooter was a former colleague, who stood in the limelight as a TV reporter. He resented being removed from it when WDBJ fired him two years ago, he later wrote.

    He didn't go nicely back then, and Ward recorded his emotional outburst on camera. Court documents from a discrimination suit that he filed show that Flanagan scoffed at Ward and flipped off the camera. Before police walked him out of the building, Flanagan also handed his manager a small wooden cross and said, "You'll need this."

    Flanagan had not worked with Parker, the reporter he shot dead, but there were signs he resented her having been hired.


    Multimedia plan

    Flanagan planned meticulously to act out a lot of resentment violently and get back into the limelight before turning his gun on himself.

    Flanagan, aka Williams, recorded video of his killing, which he spread on social media as he fled authorities. He appeared to have prepped his Twitter account days before the killing with a review of images from stations of his life.

    During his flight, posts to Twitter appeared in the name of Bryce Williams, showing video recorded from the perspective of his gun barrel as his shots struck his victims. Many social media users were horrified by the scenes playing out before them on autoplay.

    Both Facebook and Twitter quickly shut down the accounts.

    While on the run, he sent a 23-page fax to ABC News under his reporter pseudonym with a few details about his career, long rants about his disappointments and a litany of people and circumstances he blamed. Parts were labeled as suicide notes.


    Fled in a rental car

    Flanagan had rented a car weeks before and used it in his getaway instead of his own car, a 2009 Ford Mustang.

    Virginia State Police spotted the rental car on Interstate 66. A trooper tried to pull him over, police said, but he refused to stop and sped away before running off the road and crashing into an embankment.

    Troopers found Flanagan inside with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Virginia State Police Sgt. F.L. Tyler told reporters. He was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead Wednesday afternoon.


    Nasty workplace run-ins

    Flanagan was known for a series of anger and behavioral problems in his workplaces.

    As news broke about whom police sought in the killing, Don Shafer heard a familiar name on the radio. "Vester Flanagan. He worked for me," he said to himself.

    "The hair on the back of my neck went up," said Shafer, who is now news director at XETV in San Diego.

    When he hired Flanagan, Shafer was news director at WTWC in Tallahassee, Florida. The reporter who went by Bryce Williams made a nice impression on Shafer at first, but in 2000, he fired him over run-ins with colleagues.

    "There were some issues with him and his personality that kind of spiraled down, and that's why we had to get rid of him," Shafer said.

    Flanagan sued, alleging racial discrimination, but the suit was dismissed.

    Later, he joined WDBJ but was later fired over performance issues. He sued again, once more alleging discrimination.


    Fired, given a police escort

    Court documents from that suit revealed the station had taken disciplinary action against Flanagan for months, met with him many times about angry behavior and told him to seek counseling.

    Dan Dennison, former news director at WDBJ, said it was the toughest termination decision he'd ever handled. He had to call police to escort the reporter out.

    "(Williams/Flanagan) had a level of a long series of complaints against co-workers nearly from the beginning of employment at the TV station," Dennison said. He said they were never substantiated.

    The firings and lawsuits were part of a mishmash of resentments that Flanagan faxed to ABC News, while police searched for him.


    Ranting fax

    In a ranting note in his farewell fax, Flanagan tried to justify his killings.

    "OK, so the big question is 'Why?' " he wrote. "Well, after I compiled well over 100 pages chronicling the hurt in my life, I asked myself, 'Why NOT?' "

    And he talked about having a disturbed mind. "I've been a human powder keg for a while ... just waiting to go BOOM!!!! at any moment," he wrote.

    He spent some time making allegations of racism, including against reporter Parker, whom he said "made racist comments" but got hired anyhow. There was no elaboration, and WDBJ General Manager Marks said the claim was unfounded.

    "We're outraged that any of the comments in that manifesto are taken the least bit seriously," he said, adding that he doesn't believe that Flanagan and Parker crossed paths at WDBJ.

    But Flanagan also blamed much of his misery on black men and white women and said he was "somewhat racist against whites, blacks and Latinos."

    He admired the shooters who massacred students at Columbine High School and at Virginia Tech, which lies about 25 miles away from Roanoke.

    23-page rant is filled with rage and praise


    Legal gun purchases

    Flanagan said he put a deposit down for a gun two days after the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooting in June and ranted against the accused shooter.

    "As for Dylann Roof? You (deleted)! You want a race war (deleted)? BRING IT THEN YOU WHITE (deleted)!!!" the fax said.

    Police recovered two guns from Flanagan, Glock 9 mm pistols he purchased legally.



    Those lost

    Alison Parker and Adam Ward are the first journalists killed in the United States in the line of duty since 2007, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.

    "I find my grief unbearable," Parker's father, Andy Parker, said in a statement released on behalf of the family. "Allison was our bright, shining light, and it was cruelly extinguished by yet another crazy person with a gun."

    Chris Hurst, an anchor at WDBJ, has not watched the video of the shooting. He was Parker's boyfriend. The two moved in together in August and were saving up for a wedding, he told CNN's Chris Cuomo.

    "I'm trying to find the strength that she always said that I had inside of me. It doesn't feel like I have it right now," he said.

    Ward was engaged to be married to WDBJ producer Melissa Ott, a colleague said. Ward recently told her that he planned to get out of news and do something else.

    The woman who survived an on-air shooting is doing better at a hospital a day after a disgruntled former reporter wounded her and killed a TV cameraman and a reporter.

    Hannah Cline, a spokeswoman at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital, said Vicki Gardner was in good condition. Gardner was being interviewed by Alison Parker when Vester Flanagan began firing. Cameraman Adam Ward was also killed in the attack.

    Gardner is the executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce. Parker and Ward were doing a story about the lake's 50th anniversary.


    _______________________________________



    The man wanted in the on-air shootings of a local television reporter and videographer was carrying extra license plates, a wig, sunglasses and a hat when police tried to pull over his rental car.

    A search warrant return for the car driven by Vester Flanagan on Wednesday in Fauquier County shows an inventory of the contents of the silver Chevrolet Sonic sedan. Police obtained the warrant and searched the car after they tried to pull Flanagan over. He ran off the road and shot himself, dying a short time later at a hospital.

    Flanagan was traveling with a Glock pistol with multiple magazines and ammunition. He carried a white iPhone, as well as letters, notes, cards and a to-do list. It's not clear what the to-do list said.

    Police said they found a "briefcase w/3 license plates, wig, shawl, umbrella, sunglasses," as well as a black hat.

    Maybe it's just me, but I found the bolded part of his statement odd.

    Obama On Virginia Shooting: 'It Breaks My Heart'

    President Barack Obama expressed his sadness Wednesday over the shooting of two television journalists during a live broadcast.

    "It breaks my heart every time you read or hear about these kinds of incidents," Obama told WPVI's Monica Malpass during an interview at the White House.

    "What we know is that the number of people who die from gun-related incidents around this country dwarfs any deaths that happen through terrorism," Obama added.

    Reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, of Roanoke-based news station WDBJ in Virginia were shot and killed Wednesday morning by a former WDBJ reporter. Suspect Vester Lee Flanagan later died of self-inflicted gunshot wounds.

    White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest renewed the Obama administration's call for more common sense gun control reforms during a press conference Wednesday afternoon.

    Obama is no stranger to mass shootings, having spoken out on more than 14 since taking office. He has called the failure to pass gun reform "the greatest frustration" of his presidency, but vowed to not give up on the issue.

    I saw this video yesterday...
    Pretty crazy and scary at the same time. Prayers go out to the victims and their families. Imagine how the lady being interviewed must feel?

    I won't watch the POV video, but I don't have a problem with journalists or news organizations hosting or showing it. Sometimes the truth is scary, ugly, and awful, and I'm not sure if censoring that is the ultimate answer.

    It was his subtle way of partisan politics into this. We have an election coming up, and one side defends the second amendment while not caring much about the fourth, while his side doesn't care a whole lot about either one.

    In other words, 'stop talking about national security and terrorism and let's start talking about gun control.'

    Yes it was our Presidents way to say that these deaths would not have been possible had we proper gun control. Just curious if a 3 day background check would have stopped this guy. No. He had a rent a car for a few weeks that he was going to use.

    Dude was fucked in the head.

    Well I guess we shouldn't worry about terrorism Barry. Glad that's over with. If that's the case then I guess there is no need for the NSA to collect phone or internet data.

    What a dipshit. Maybe if he and his cohorts were not trying to enflame the belief that everything is racist, these people would ahve lived.

    I don't see where refusing to watch or share the video is censorship. It is a choice. Sharing the video facilitates this asshole's intent.

    Don Lemon: Yes, WDBJ Shooter Was ‘Racist’
    by Matt Wilstein

    1:53 pm, August 27th, 2015




    Vester Flanagan, the former WDBJ reporter who went by the name Bryce Williams and killed two of his former colleagues on-air yesterday morning before taking his own life, wrote in his manifesto that he faced workplace discrimination as a black, gay man. During his regular radio commentary today, CNN’s Don Lemon, who also happens to be black and gay, said he believes the shooter was “racist.”

    “It is a television journalist’s worst nightmare,” Lemon said, recounting the details of how reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were gunned down on live television. “The station’s managers and his co-workers say Flanagan was fired because he had become increasingly difficult to work with. They say he wasn’t a good on-air reporter,” he added of the shooter’s relationship with WDBJ management. “But Flanagan saw it differently.”

    In his manifesto, Flanagan said it was the Charleston church shooting that sent him “over the top” and invoked a “race war” against the likes of Dylann Roof, who said his motivation was to kill black people in that attack.

    “The discussion about Flanagan has mainly centered on mental health and whether Flanagan was mentally ill,” Lemon said. “The other, lesser discussion, has been whether he was racist.”

    “If one looks objectively at Flanagan’s actions and history, one can’t help but come to the conclusion that both are probably true,” he continued. “Flanagan killed the two young people because they were white. He admitted as much. And yes, anyone who does what he did was also out of their mind.”

    During live coverage of the shooting on Fox News yesterday, Gretchen Carlson asked a security expert why the WDBJ shooting is not being considered a “hate crime.” Because Flanagan knew his victims personally and had specific grievances against them, the shooting has been labeled “workplace violence.”[/B]

    Ugh. Im not Murican but Im really getting sick and tired of hearing about events like this.

    Thats all Ill say. Anything else I say in this thread will just be met with the same idiotic responses, so Ill just refrain.

    So sad. Glad the guy offed himself. One less psycho to own a deadly weapon and possibly kill someone else.

    I think the Prez was right to suggest that this was an ongoing, important problem. There's way too many weapons out there and way too many crazies/angry ppl. It's a bad combination. You could leave the number of weapons the same if you somehow found a magical way to render the US population as responsible and calm as the Swiss population, since they do own weapons and don't have these kind of shootings.

    Short of that, you need to diminish the number of guns in circulation.
