A reporter and a cameraman were shot dead during a live broadcast. They had just concluded an interview.

Another day in the U.S.

Cannot imagine the grief their families are suffering.

It's absolutely horrible. The reporters were somewhere near Roanoke VA.

Tragic and senseless. Again.

A little more information on the shooter on Reuters -


Sad situation. My condolences for the victims' friends and families.

I saw the video this AM. It was surreal. Shocking.

It appears the whole story was a storm brewing. The shooter recorded his deed and a shiver runs down the spine when you see him point a pistol at people and nobody even notices until it is too late …

Heard about it last night.

The shooter was one sick scumbag who was living in filth while being surrounded by pictures of himself along with porn and sex toys.

Apparently the cameraman had previously reported the shooter in a separate incident which resulted in the shooter being fired from his job at the station. As such he was disgruntled with the station in general, and the cameraman and reporter specifically. After the shooting he fled, but was pinned down by state police. He then shot himself critically, and died a short while later.

But he was clearly a mentally unstable individual being disgruntled is one thing, but premeditating the whole thing before, during and after by video smacks of someone who never should have been allowed to own anything sharper than a pencil..

Has anyone figured out how the shooter knew exactly where to be and at what time? I think we might be looking at more than one person in this crime.
