Shocking video of a Virginia news crew being shot and killed live on air.
WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward set out for a routine live shot on Wednesday morning in the town on Moneta, but during their interview with local lawmaker Vicki Gardner, a gunman approached and shots rang out.
In the disturbing video, which we won’t show here, you can hear screams and see the chaos as the women attempt to escape from the shooter and the camera collapses.
Before the feed is cut, the camera catches a glimpse of the shooter who is believed to be a disgruntled former employee of the news station. Officials are on the hunt for the killer who is possible heading down Interstate 81.
Unfortunately, both WDBJ employees Ward and Parker were killed, Gardner was shot in the back and is undergoing surgery. Our thoughts and prayers to the entire community.
