Shots rang out for no apparent reason Wednesday morning as a gunman opened fire on a reporter and her cameraman in Moneta, Virginia. Police have confirmed that Allison Parker and Adam Ward were killed at the scene.
Their station, WDBJ7, is at a loss for words other than these:
We love you, Alison and Adam. pic.twitter.com/hLSzQi06XE

Police are searching for the suspect in the shooting, who is considered armed and dangerous. One of the last things caught on film by cameraman Adam Ward was an image of his murderer:
There is no motive for the crime as of yet, but there is a great sense of loss. This act of violence is already rippling across the airwaves and through online media. For a reporter and her cameraman to be gunned down for what appears to be no reason at all during an innocuous interview about something apparently trivial is a testament to the state of our society.
Somebody move the clock one minute closer to midnight, please.
*Warning* – This video is extremely graphic.
Watch two innocent journalists gunned down live on the air in a senseless act of violence.
