Suspected Virginia Shooter Has Died After Apparently Tweeting Details of Attack

This is a breaking news story. Check back for updates.Authorities have confirmed that the shooter responsible for killing two journalists who were former colleagues and wounding one other person on Wednesday morning has died after shooting himself. A reporter identified as Alison Parker, 24, and a cameraman named Adam Ward, 27, were fatally shot during a live broadcast for WDBJ7 in Bedford County, Virginia. A third person who was being interviewed on camera, Vicki Gardner, was shot and wounded in the back but is currently in stable condition. Authorities confirmed the shooter's identity as Vester Flanagan, who used the name Bryce Williams while broadcasting on WDBJ. Shortly after the shooting took place, a person began posting footage and details of the crime on Twitter and Facebook accounts associated with Bryce Williams. The accounts have since been suspended. "Alison made racist comments," said one Tweet. Another read, "I filmed the shooting see Facebook." The Augusta County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Flanagan killed himself, but WDBJ later reported that he has a pulse and is in very critical condition. Virginia State Police said Flanagan was transported to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to ABC News. WDBJ hired Flanagan in 2012 as a general assignment and multimedia reporter, introducing him in a statement alongside another new hire as Bryce Williams. "Attracting Orlando and Bryce, two veteran reporters with an enormous scope of experience to our team, is a testament to the quality and professionalism of the news produced daily by the WDBJ7 team," WDBJ news director Dan Dennison said at the time.WDBJ General Manager Jeff Marks said on the air today that Flanagan was an "unhappy man" and had a reputation of being difficult to work with.Flanagan "was sort of looking out for people to say things that he could take offense to," Marks said. "Eventually, after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore, we dismissed him. And he didn't take that well. We had to call the police to escort him from the building." After being fired, Flanagan then filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleging that co-workers had made racial comments, Marks added. Marks could not recall if the complaint specifically concerned Ward and Parker. In an interview on a local radio show shortly after the shooting took place, Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe said that the suspect was believed to be a "disgruntled former employee" of the news station.Sheriff— Tom Winter (@Tom_Winter) August 26, 2015Speaking in an emotional broadcast following the incident, a fellow staff member said: "This kind of loss will resonate for a long, long time as we remember in their short lives what dedicated journalists and what outstanding people they were."Update: Allison Parker and photographer Adam Ward have been killed in the shooting at Bridgewater Plaza at SML. — Brent Watts (@wattsupbrent) August 26, 2015"This is big news, national news, but I just can't hammer home enough that he was a phenomenal person and that's what we lost," said Solina Lewis, a friend of Ward, in a statement today. "That's what this gunman stole from our industry, from Melissa and from me."Video footage apparently captured the moment that shots rang out. We are trying to figure out what just happened — thank you all for your concern and kind words.— WDBJ7 (@WDBJ7) August 26, 2015We love you, Alison and Adam. — WDBJ7 (@WDBJ7) August 26, 2015
