This is absolutely horrible. As you probably know, a TV reporter and her cameraman were shot and killed as they were doing a live broadcast for WDBJ7-TV, the CBS affiliate in Roanoke, Virginia this morning.
Reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were killed. They were 24 and 27, respectively, and both of them were engaged to be married to other people. Parker had been interviewing Vicki Gardner, executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce, on the 50th anniversary of the founding of Smith Mountain Lake. As of this writing, her condition is not known.
The suspect is apparently either a current or former employee of the station who was shot himself although his condition is unknown.
