WDBJ confirmed that reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were killed in the shooting

DBJ’s general manager also appeared live on air to deliver the news.

“It’s my very, very sad duty to report…that Alison and Adam died this morning,” the manager said.

Video from the scene shows the crew 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 scene quickly cut back to a stunned anchorwoman who said, “OK, not sure what happened there. We will of course let you know as soon as we find out what those sounds were.”
