    Two television journalists were killed during a live broadcast
    in Virginia on Wednesday, shot by a suspect who was a former
    employee of the TV station and who called himself a "powder keg"
    of anger over what he saw as racial discrimination at work and
    elsewhere in the United States.

    The suspect, 41-year-old Vester Flanagan, shot himself as police
    pursued him on a Virginia highway hours after the shooting.
    Flanagan, who was African-American, died later at a hospital,
    police said.

    The journalists who were killed were reporter Alison Parker, 24,
    and cameraman Adam Ward, 27. Both journalists were white, as is
    a woman who they were interviewing. The woman was wounded and
    was in stable condition, a hospital spokesman said.

    Social media postings by a person who appeared to be Flanagan
    indicated the suspect had grievances against the station, CBS
    affiliate WDBJ7 in Roanoke, Virginia, which let him go two years
    ago. The person also posted video that appeared to show the
    attack filmed from the shooter's vantage point.

    Flanagan sent ABC News a 23-page fax about two hours after the
    shooting, saying his attack was triggered by the June 17 mass
    shooting at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, the
    network said. Nine people were killed, and a white man has been
    charged in that rampage.

    The network cited Flanagan as saying he had suffered racial
    discrimination, sexual harassment and bullying at work. He had
    been attacked by black men and white women, and for being a gay
    black man, he said.

    "The church shooting was the tipping point ... but my anger has
    been building steadily," ABC News cited the fax as saying. "I've
    been a human powder keg for a while ... just waiting to go BOOM!"

    The on-air shooting occurred at about 6:45 a.m. EDT (1045 GMT)
    at Bridgewater Plaza, a Smith Mountain Lake recreation site
    about 200 miles (320 km) southwest of Washington.

    The broadcast was abruptly interrupted by the sound of gunshots
    as Parker and the woman being interviewed, Vicki Gardner,
    executive director of the Smith Mountain Lake Regional Chamber
    of Commerce, screamed and ducked for cover.

    Hours after the shooting, someone claiming to have filmed it
    posted video online. The videos were posted to a Twitter account
    and on Facebook by a man identifying himself as Bryce Williams,
    which was Flanagan's on-air name.

    The videos were removed shortly afterward. One video clearly
    showed a handgun as the person filming approached the woman

    The person purporting to be Williams also posted, "I filmed the
    shooting see Facebook" as well as saying one of the victims had
    "made racist comments."

    In the fax to ABC News, Flanagan praised shooters who had
    carried out mass killings at Virginia Tech University in 2007
    and at Colorado's Columbine High School in 1999.

    ABC News said Flanagan called the network shortly after 10 a.m.
    Flanagan said he had shot two people, police were after him and
    then hung up. ABC News then contacted authorities and turned
    over the fax, which had arrived about 90 minutes earlier, the
    network said.


    Flanagan shot himself as Virginia State Police were closing in
    on a rental car on Interstate 66 in Fauquier County, WDBJ7 said.
    Virginia state police said the suspect refused to stop when
    spotted by troopers and sped away.

    Minutes later, the suspect's vehicle ran off the road and
    crashed, police said in a statement, adding the troopers
    approached the vehicle and found the driver with a gunshot
    wound. He was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital near Washington,
    where he died.

    "It's obvious that this gentleman was disturbed in some way at
    the way things had transpired at some part of his life," Overton
    told a news conference.

    "It appears things were spiraling out of control, but we’re
    still looking into that," he said. "We still have a lengthy
    investigation to conduct and that's our focus as we move

    Flanagan had sued another station where he worked in Florida,
    alleging he had been discriminated against because he was black.

    Flanagan said he was called a "monkey" by a producer in a
    lawsuit filed in federal court against a Tallahassee station,
    WTWC, in 2000. He also said a supervisor at the station called
    black people lazy. The Florida case was settled and dismissed
    the next year, court records show.

    WDBJ7 President and General Manager Jeff Marks said he could not
    figure out a particular connection between Flanagan and the two
    dead journalists.

    Speaking to CNN about Flanagan, he added, "Do you imagine that
    everyone who leaves your company under difficult circumstances
    is going to take aim?"

    "Why were they (Parker and Ward) the targets, and not I or
    somebody else in management?" he said.

    The station's early morning broadcast showed Parker interviewing
    Gardner about the lake and tourism development in the area.
    Gunshots erupted, and as Ward fell his camera hit the ground but
    kept running. An image caught on camera showed what appeared to
    be a man in dark clothing facing the camera with a weapon in his
    right hand.

    The station described the two dead journalists as an ambitious reporter-and-cameraman team who often produced light and breezy
    feature stories for the morning program.

    "I cannot tell you how much they were loved," Marks said.

    They were both engaged to be married to other people at the

    A couple living across from the shopping center where the
    shooting took place said police burst into their apartment and
    awakened them at gunpoint. Police said they were looking for the
    shooter, according to the woman, who identified herself only as

    "I moved from Philly (Philadelphia) to get away from that kind
    of stuff," she said, adding that she had been in the area a few

    The White House said the shooting was another example of gun
    violence that is "becoming all too common."

    White House spokesman Josh Earnest, reflecting frustration that
    President Barack Obama has expressed over his inability to push
    through laws to tighten gun laws, told reporters that Congress
    could pass legislation that would have a "tangible impact on
    reducing gun violence in this country."

    According to his social media sites, Flanagan attended San
    Francisco State University. A university spokesman said he
    graduated in 1995 with a degree in radio and television.
