Fiancé Of Journalist Shot On Live TV Posts Heart-Breaking Message To Social Media

Earlier today it was reported that two journalists working for WDBJ7 news station in Virginia, USA were shot and killed on live TV by a disgruntled former employee (WARNING: disturbing footage, viewer discretion advised).

The victims were named as reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward who both worked closely together at the station.

The shooter has been named as Vester Flanigan, who, according to reports went on to shoot himself following a police pursuit. He is said to be in critical condition in hospital.

Both Parker and Ward were in relationships with other employees of the station and devastatingly, Mr. Ward's fiancée was apparently in the control room and saw him being shot.

After the tragedy, Ms. Parker's boyfriend took to his social media pages to share some touching memories and inspirational words about his girlfriend.

WDBJ7 general manager Jeff Marks commented about the shooter Vester Flanigan;

I’m not sure whether I want him to live or die. We’re hurt enough that we want to express our anger, and our love for Alison and Adam.

RIP Alison Parker and Adam Ward. Our thoughts are with their family and friends.
