LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Two journalists were shot dead on live TV this morning in Moneta, Virginia, by an unknown assailant. WDBJ7 TV reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27 were ambushed and killed in cold blood as a camera rolled.
Parker was conducting a live interview on location when shots rang out from just off camera. Ward, the cameraman, immediately fell to the ground, fatally stricken. Ward can be seen recoiling and screaming as she too was hit. The feed was promptly cut by the news station.
Police have said they are searching for clues in the case and they have not announced any suspects or motives.
Our prayers are with the victims, their families and coworkers. May justice be served.
UPDATE: A disgruntled employee may be suspected in this case. Vester L. Flanagan is being sought in connection with the shooting. Flanagan was fired from WDBJ, according to CNN.
