WDBJ: Video shot and tweeted by suspected gunman Bryce Williams aka Vester Flanagan



This video (SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO) was filmed by the gunman who shot down a reporter and photographer of WDBJ TV station at West Virginia on Thursday. Suspect Vester Le Flanagan aka Bryce Williams apparently shared the video on Twitter. He was filming and live tweeting as he walked towards WDBJ7 reporter Alison Parker and photographer Adam Ward at Bridgewater Plaza in Roanoke in West Virginia, United States of America.

It appears from the video that Parker was busy conducting the Live interview at a shopping center in Moneta and she and the cameraperson did not notice the gunman. The attacker was standing beside camera person Adam Ward for almost 20 seconds before he fired several shots at Alison Parker and then at Ward.


The incident was aired live until the camera fell down from Adam Ward’s hands and the broadcast cuts to a shocked and confused anchor.

The gunman later shot himself fatally when he was confronted by cops according to law enforcement authorities.

It has appeared that the attacker was a disgruntled former employee of WDBJ7 TV station and was fired from the channel.
