A gunman killed a reporter and videographer for a CBS affiliate in Virginia in a shooting that was broadcast live Wednesday morning.
The affiliate, WDBJ-TV in Roanoke, reports that police are looking for a suspect.
Alison Parker, 24, and Adam Ward, 27, a reporter and cameraman respectively for WDBJ-TV, died in the shooting, the station’s general manager, Jeff Marks, said during a broadcast later in the morning.
Marks said that Parker and Ward died shortly after 6:45 a.m., when the shots rang out.
“We heard screaming and then we heard nothing,” Marks said.
Marks said the police do not know the motive of the shooting or the gunman’s identity.
The shooting happened at Bridgewater Plaza in Moneta, Virginia.
Schools in Bedford County, where Moneta is located, and neighboring Franklin County were placed on lockdown following the shooting, according to messages posted to the school districts’ Facebook pages.
