News crew shot during live broadcast.
Edit: Updated info on the story

Looks as if the motive for the murders may be racial.

Story here with video during the broadcast

The guy then posted a POV video of him shooting and then shot himself.

The reporter and cameraman died. The lady being interviewed was shot in the back but will survive.

The shooter is in "severely critical condition" dead after shooting himself.

Information on the shooter and the actual broadcast here



WARNING: GRAPHIC

It's a good thing we have so many guns and no background checks here in America isn't it?

Article says the dude didn't have a criminal background. *shrug*

How awful.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

According to another news person, in FL in 2000, the guy was hired & fired at their news station for "bazaar and erratic behavior".

Hmm ... a Jehovah's Witness and a "high paid companion" ... an interesting combination.

I'm gonna say this guy added psychotic episode to his long list of mental health issues, which may have begun as a very treatable bipolar condition.

Neither the time nor the place for that, Rev. It's an insult to the victims and their loved ones to try and pass blame off to anyone or to anything other than the murderer.

Besides, like Rocket said, he had no criminal background; your point is moot.
