TV Reporter And Cameraman Shot And Killed During Live Broadcast

This morning a sad tragedy occurred.

A TV news reporter and cameraman were killed in a shooting that was captured in a live news broadcast. 

WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, 24, and 27-year-old cameraman Adam Ward were the victims of the horrific tragedy. 

The  interview that took place between Parker and Vicky Gardner, head of the Smith Mountain Lake Chamber of Commerce, took a sudden shocking turn when the gunman dressed in dark clothes came close to them with a gun. 

Gardner was shot in the back but remains alive and is in surgery.

Officials believe that the gunman may be a “disgruntled employee.”

Ward started working for the station in July 2011, the year he graduated from Virginia Tech, according to his LinkedIn page. His colleagues at the station said he was engaged.

Parker graduated from James Madison University in 2012 and interned at the station that summer, according to her LinkedIn profile. She returned as a morning reporter in May 2014.
