A tragedy occurred today in Virginia when WDBJ-TV journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward were gunned down while conducting a live interview. They were shot live on air by Vester L. Flanagan II, who was a previous employee of WDBJ. He went by the on air name Bryce Williams. Williams died later this afternoon of a self-inflicted gun shot wound. Thoughts and prayers going out to the families and friends of Parker and Ward. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON THE STORY.
