TV reporter and cameraman fatally shot during live report
Breaking over last hour or so...

A television reporter and a videographer for a CBS affiliate WDBJ7 in Roanoke, Va., were shot and killed Wednesday morning as they were doing a live report. The incident was caught on film and those at the station said they heard six to seven shots and then nothing as the camera fell.

The incident happened around 6:45 a.m. at Bridgewater Plaza — a shopping and entertainment center on Smith Mountain Lake, in Franklin County — where the two were interviewing a woman with a local chamber group. Few details were immediately known, said officials with the WDBJ7. Jeff Marks, the station’s general manager, said law enforcement told him they were working to track down the shooter and did not know of a motive at this time.

Alison Parker, a 24-year-old reporter, and Adam Ward, 27, who was a cameraman, photographer and videographer, were killed, according to WDBJ7.

I have to say, I was definitely thinking "white" with the shooting taking place at 6:45am. I'll try to check my prejudice a little more going forward.

Here you can see the full video the shooter took. He was a disgruntled former worker at the station. Apparently now he shot himself too.

You can also download it here if you want to grab it: http://sendvid.com/p5n3rcwb

He uploaded the video to his facebook and twitter, but it was taken down. What a kooky dude.

I think the same thing quite often but when I'm up super early (or super late) I've seen way more black people walking around at that time but I think it's due to a couple of things: blacks don't have cars and they don't have AC in their houses. So why stay home in the heat and if not home then you're walking cause you ain't go no car!
