Gunman Murders 2 Virginia Reporters in Attack Broadcast on Live TV
A WDBJ live report appears to have ended in gunshots after a gunman apparently began firing at the news crew early Wednesday morning
WDBJ reporter Alison Parker was interviewing a woman at Bridgewater Plaza, a shopping center in Roanoke, VA, when the apparent gunman strode into the shot, firing what sounded like at least six shots.
The alleged gunman can be seen, briefly, in the shot before the camera drops.
WDBJ has confirmed that police are currently on the scene, investigating what they’re calling an “incident” involving their news crew. According to WSLS10, there were at least three victims but the extent of their injuries is currently unknown.
Schools in the area are reportedly on lockdown and both directions of Virginia 122
have been closed while officers from Bedford, Franklin County, Virginia State Police and the Virginia Dept. of Game and Inland Fisheries search for the alleged shooter.
WDBJ says reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were both killed in the attack.
