Tragedy in Virginia with reporter and photographer shot to death.

Here is the link to the event

A man with a gun has shot and killed two media members on live television while they were filming in central Virginia, according to WDBJ, and police are still searching for the assailant.

The two killed were identified by the station as reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27.

The incident occurred at 6:45 a.m. at Bridgewater Plaza in Moneta, Va., according to Franklin County Sheriff Department spokesperson Phillip Young. Earlier, police had reported there were three victims, according to WSLS.

WSLS said police are still looking for the shooter and hope to have a description out to the public shortly.

The shooting occurred live on television while Parker was conducting an interview outdoors, with Ward filming. As the camera panned to Parker and her subject, multiple shots rang out and several screams could be heard. As the camera fell to the ground, an blurry image suspected to be of the gunman came into view on the screen.

Bedford County schools are on lockdown as cops search for the shooter. The Virginia Department of Transportation has reported a high-priority situation and notes the closing of both north and south lanes of Route 122 in the area.

Ward graduated from Salem High School and Virginia Tech and Parker grew up in Martinsville and attended Patrick Henry Community College and James Madison University, according to WDBJ.

Moneta is about 25 miles east of Roanoke.
