Caught On Tape: Virginia Reporter, Photographer Killed During Live TV Report; Schools Locked-Down As Gunman Loose

While Americans are becoming numb to inner city violence, shooting sprees, and lone gunmen at military installations, the following stunning clip - from live TV at the Bridgewater Plaza in Bedford County, Virginia - of a reporter and photographer being shot and killed is likely to raise the public's awareness of the underlying chaos occurring under the surface in America every day...

As RT reports,

A gunman has opened fire on a TV news crew conducting a live broadcast from Virginia shopping center on Wednesday. Police are reporting three victims, though their conditions are currently unknown. The shooter is still on the loose.


Video from the scene appears to show a crew from local TV outlet WDBJ7 being attacked in the middle of a live report at Bridgewater Plaza in Moneta, Virginia.


A reporter was interviewing a woman at the shopping center when the gunman walked into view, firing what sounded to be at least six shots.


The station has confirmed the incident involved one of its crews.


Police are looking for the shooter and hope to soon release a description of the individual to the public.


Nearby Bedford County schools are currently on lockdown as police search for the shooter, ABC 13 reported. The Virginia Department of Transportation has reported a high-priority situation, announcing the closure of Route 122 in the area.

Warning - Disturbing images...


Unbelievable shooting on live TV in the Roanoke area this morning. Prayers to my friends at WDBJ7.
