Reporter And Camera Man Killed On Live TV In Roanoke, Virginia

Update: The suspect is a "disgruntled" former employee of the station. Virginia State Police are currently chasing him. (link fixed)

Update: Not being chased and never was.

And now I remember why I stopped doing breaking story posts.

Original Post:
That headline sounds awful, like I making fun of it but it's a literal description of what happened.

The incident occurred at about 6:45 a.m. EDT during a live broadcast in Bedford County, when shots could be heard, sending the reporter and the person she was interviewing screaming and ducking for cover.

The station, WDBJ7 in Roanoke, Virginia, said the reporter Alison Parker, 24, and the cameraman, Adam Ward, 27, died in the incident.

Parker and Ward were filming a feature segment for the morning news program at Bridgewater Plaza, a shopping and recreation plaza.

They were apparently doing a tourism story. You know, typical morning news stuff.

I haven't watched the video but after seeing the image of the killer, any thought I had of watching it is gone. My understanding is the images aren't so bad but the audio of the victims is "haunting."

The important thing is capturing the sick freak who did this. Spread the images far and wide.


Pray for the victims, their loved ones and the aim of the first cop who gets this piece of crap in their gun sights.

From a tweet I saw, no.

The cameraman and reporterette were specifically targeted, and the subject of the interview was not harmed.

but again, normal disclaimer -- first 24 hours after anything like this happens, all the details are wrong.

16 From the screengrabs, it could be a jihadi or a member of the cast of 'Duck Dynasty.'

If it is the former, that's a curious streak of jihadi activity... Tennessee, southwest Virginia... not exactly places you expect this.

Then again, you can't rule out mentally ill loser, or jealous ex-boyfriend.

Sounds like some drama going on in that office too -- the 24 year old reporter just moved in with a (seemingly much) older news anchor recently according to his twitter feed.

I'm really feeling the "ex boyfriend" scenario is the most likely.

It would have to be someone who knew she was going to be there, which would indicate a stalker or a coworker.

28 If this was targeted, the shooter would have had to have known where they'd be and when.

That implies inside info of some kind.

Cameraman was shot first, she was shot while running for cover after that.

30 The video, for those of you who can brace yourself for watching it, is here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mERfG6PQGCo

You don't actually see anyone getting shot.

The camera is shot first from behind (so you don't see it), the he falls and drops the camera, and then seconds later the reporter is shot -- off-screen too.

But yes, horrible screaming.

And then the expression of the anchor back in the studio -- unforgettable. Total, authentic shock.

Because the guy looks nuts, or because of the brazenness of killing someone on live tv?

My thought process is this: you don't hunt down some random TV crew covering some boring local news story and kill them on national TV unless you want to make a point and don't care about getting caught.

So jilted ex-boyfriend makes the most sense to me.

Jihadi could work, too, but they would have chosen a more famous target or a more target rich environment, right? This shooting took place in the boonies. And why didn't he shoot everyone else in the whole water park?

Crazy schizo could work too, I suppose...

39 Based on the killer's dressed-all-in-black appearance, I'd venture to say this attack wasn't a spur-of-the-moment,impulsiveattack. This seems planned. In my view, there's a reasonable likelihood those people were deliberately targeted beforehand.

Should be noted the killer wears an...interesting beard, making me think he's possibly a jihadist of some sort, although it makes no sense for an Islamic terrorist type to kill news people doing a morning public interest story. Yes, I know, 'makes no sense' is a given when talking about terrorists' motives, but it somehow doesn't feel right as a terror attack.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a schizophrenic who was obsessed with the reporter, and had a paranoid delusion.

56 The bit I click on from IJreview in spite of their click bait headlining the interviewee was Vicki Gardner and she was shot in the back and is in surgery.

In this case the media may have been trying to confirm her identity and medical status rather than coldly only caring about their folks.

I hope the sick freak who did this is SSSd by someone and doesn't even get his name in print anywhere. Evilness for notoriety is out of hand.

I think ThunderB already answered this... but morning TV shows often advertise where they're going to be ahead of time. Also, they probably mentioned it to whatever businesses they were going to be covering, so everyone there would have known. The circle of knowledge grows really fast after that.

Target of opportunity? He might have been ready and just needed a target. The location and time would have been conducive to it, minimal interference. He hears the tease, grabs his gear, goes, does the deed, scoots.

Which still implies targeting of media specifically.

Regardless of viewpoint, everyone in the media is milking this senseless tragedy for all it's worth. That's what people do these days.

Personally, I'm hoping the authorities catch the shooter and keep him alive long enough to find out what his "reasoning" was, so the speculation can be put to rest.

After that, he should be encouraged to resist arrest.

Obviously you don't watch enough TV.

And I guess I could be making a mistake by offering rational interpretations of an irrational act, but I think it's a mistake (especially this early) to be focusing on any one of the victims as the primary target.

It could be the reporter.
It could be the camera man.
It could even have been the interviewee (who, I believe, was shot).
It could have been an opportunistic attack, in which case none of them specifically were targeted, and the shooter had some other motive.

Read pioneer FBI profiler John Douglas' books, any of them. In the course of his work, Douglas interviewed dozens of imprisoned serial killers (although Douglas hates the term 'serial killer'). Even the most batshit crazy of them had a discernible motive. For example, Douglas tricked the Son of Sam killer, David Berkowitz, into admitting that his 'my dog made me do it' defense was a carefully thought out Plan B in case Berkowitz was captured--which he was.

Berkwitz killed those people because he was/is a sexual sadist. He got off sexually on the act of murder. That's a discernible motive.

This kind of stuff is what has me torn.

On the one hand, the murder of these people is an evil thing. I do not wish it to continue or spread. And I hope for swift justice to be administered to the killer.

On the other hand, I have less and less sympathy for the media as a group or class.


I am troubled beyond the specifics of this crime. I grow troubled at my own sense of desensitization. I am split between righteous indignation and a degree of shame that I would even have "on the other hand" considerations for such events.

I'm in Staunton right now, and was planning on going to the Verona Farmer's Market when it opens at noon to buy a pie. The pie guy is usually completely sold out by 12:30: not the best pies in the world, but very good for the price ($7.50-$8.50).

The gridlock remark worried me, but the 511virginia.org site includes traffic cameras, which show no delays north or south of Harrisonburg, including the exit 227 camera, which is in Verona. Not to be self-centered or insensitive or anything, but maybe I'll get my pie after all.

Fine. Screw it. I ate some sweet dates like the Palestinians did on 9/11 which is when I first started to become fully aware of how much our media lies to us and distorts the truth. The media truly hate us. Plenty of other people will die today. I'll care much more about them.

The aggravating part is the shooter was given a relatively light sentence.

Posted by: Cruzinator at August 26, 2015 10:13 AM (kvhal)

I remember that vividly. The ex-husband blamed the ex-wife for the daughter's suicide, so he capped the ex right there in the graveyard.

The only thing I can think of that's worse that I've seen live was the NYC Alderman (or some such politician) who did a news conference in 1987 and pulled out a huge revolver and stuck it in his mouth and pulled the trigger. That video is truly haunting.

526 He's more likely to have kept his phone and ditched his car than the other way around, so maybe he left his car at the airport - before or after the shooting - and stole another car there (plenty to choose from).

Also, Bridgewater is not on I-81 or US 11 (which are basically the same route - old road and new road - crossing each other every 20-30 miles). It's a few miles west of both on route 42, which goes up the west side of the valley parallel to 11 and 81.

One
amusing thought: if he cut over to Bridgewater and then headed south on
42, he would soon get to Buffalo Gap - 10 miles west of Staunton - and
exit the valley into the next valley to the west. If he stays on 42 for
another 15-20 miles, he gets to Craigsville, which has an active Klan
chapter and (I'm reliably told) a neighborhood where all the very few
local blacks live 'N***** Holler'. No, I'm not joking. Yes, they spell it out, though the 'spam filter' nanny won't let me. I don't feel safe
in Craigsville in the day time, and I'm white.

Then again, if he has an
accomplice driving north with his phone to lead the police off the
track, maybe he did fly out of Roanoke airport. There can't be all that
many places he could have gotten to from there, though, so he would be
easy to track - at least a lot easier to track than if he made it to
Dulles.

I'll catch up on the details by the "National Day of Mourning and Reconciliation" event.



In addition to the Native American, feminist and transgendered speakers, how about we give the Wiccans a shot at the national spotlight this time - maybe before Obama's speech.



And I hope the "Co-exist" shirts they sell can be modified to show a microphone. I'll buy two because I missed the souvenirs at the last event.

Many if not most Americans are completely devoid of real-world experience with violence. I'm guessing the victims didn't/couldn't register the gun or perceive the threat. They couldn't believe it was happening. It wouldn't process. It was unreal to them right up to the moment he started shooting.

Something I noticed about violence, based upon personal experience: When things go South, they go South in a hurry. Once moment everything's normal, the next moment you're in the shit. You rarely see it coming no matter how aware you are.
