Vester L. Flanagan II, the suspect in the slayings of two WDBJ-TV journalists, died at a hospital Wednesday afternoon of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Franklin County, Virginia, Sheriff Bill Overton told reporters.
Two television journalists were shot and killed in Virginia on Wednesday morning while conducting a live television interview, WDBJ7 said.
The incident occurred during a live broadcast in Bedford County, when shots could be heard, sending the reporter and her source screaming and ducking for cover.
The station said  journalists Alison Parker and Adam Ward died in the incident.
Media reports said Parker and Ward were filming a feature segment for the morning news programme at Bridgewater Plaza, a shopping and recreation plaza.
“We do not know the motive, we do not know who the killer is,” Jeff Marks, the station’s General Manager, said on air.
