Shocking footage has appeared online of what appears to be the gunman’s perspective in the Virginia TV shooting.
The killer of the two journalists, identified as Alison Parker and Adam Ward, filmed his attack and allegedly tweeted from the roadside – however his account has since been suspended.
Initial reports suggested that the cameraman was shot first, however, in extended footage uploaded to LiveLeak, Parker is shot first before instinctively turning and running away.
The gunman, who is alleged to have now killed himself, has been identified as 41-year-old Vester Lee Flanagan II. Reports say he was a former employee of the station, and went as Bryce Williams on air. He is reported to have been the ex-boyfriend of one of the journalists.
Warning: The below footage could be distressing.
Augusta County Sheriff's Office confirmed they are looking out for Vester Lee Flanagan in relation to the shooting. @roanoketimes
