Journalists Shot on camera

 Two television journalists were shot and killed in Virginia on Wednesday morning while conducting a live interview, and authorities said police were pursuing a suspect who appeared to be a disgruntled current or former employee of the TV station.

 The shooting occurred at about 6:45 a.m. EDT (1045 GMT) during an interview being broadcast live from Bridgewater Plaza, a Smith Mountain Lake recreation site with restaurants, shops, boating and arcades and holiday rentals.

 The area is in the south-central part of the state, about 120 miles (190 km) from the capital of Richmond.

The journalists were filming an interview for the morning news show of the WDBJ7 TV station in Roanoke, Virginia. In the broadcast, shots were heard and the reporter and the person being interviewed screamed and ducked for cover.

 The reporter Alison Parker, 24, and the cameraman, Adam Ward, 27, died in the incident, WDBJ7
said. The woman being interviewed was wounded.

 Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe said in interview on Washington radio station WTOP that the suspected shooter had been identified as a disgruntled current or former station employee.
