Black gunman kills two white journalists live on air. Can you imagine the hell that would ensue if a white man did this to black journalists?

A disgruntled former news reporter shot himself and (updated: has subsequently died in the hospital) after shooting dead two of his ex-coworkers during a live TV segment this morning in Moneta, Virginia.

Vester Lee Flanagan (who also goes by Bryce Williams) took to Twitter to explain his reasons for shooting dead WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27.

Flanagan, who is African American, wrote that Parker made ‘racist comments’ and that a complaint was filed against her through the equal employment opportunity commission, but his station chose to hire her anyway.

As for Ward, Flanagan says that after working with the cameraman once, Ward complained to HR about the former multimedia and general assignment reporter. It’s unclear what exactly happened between the two men.

But the most shocking post of all was a video Flanagan took of the attack, which he shared on his Twitter.The chilling clip is taken from Flanagan’s point of view and shows him approaching the two journalists as they were interviewing Vicki Gardner, the local chamber of commerce. He opens fire first on Ward and then turns to kill Parker. Parker, 24, and Ward, 27, died at the scene while Gardner was rushed to Roanoke Memorial Hospital for emergency surgery.

After posting the graphic video of the attack, Flanagan’s Twitter account was suspended.
