good evening, i'll julie haener. >> and i'm frank somerville. he was a television news reporter, but today, he made news for all the wrong reasons. a graduate of bay area state, fired by a television station in roanoke, virginia two years ago. today he emerged from the shadows and ambushed two former colleagues, as they were carrying out an interview on live television. we're going to begin our coverage, not by talking about the gunman, but by talking about the victims. >> reporter: three victims were shot, frank. the reporter, the photographer, both killed, and the woman that they were interviewing is in the hospital tonight. alison parker was doing her job. a routine interview on tourism. her friend and colleague photographer adam ward was behind the camera. a team who worked closely together, rising stars at wdbj and then as viewers watched on
live tv, the gunfire began coworkers, shocked, in horror watched it all. the station general manager later delivered the news. >> we have determined through the help of the police and our employees that alison and adam died this morning. >> reporter: shock and grief and tears have slowly emerged. shared online in tweets from the station. we love you, alison and adam. and from those who loved the victim's most. alison parker was 24 years old. a former intern at the station who became a bright spot in the newsroom, hard working, with the dream of becoming a national correspondent. she and her boyfriend, chris hurst had moved in together and planned to get married. >> when we had our 6 month anniversary, she made a scrapbook for me. i put in all of the pictures that we spent together for the first six months. >> reporter: in a statement, alison's father said his grief
was unbearable. not hearing her voice again crushes my soul. adam ward, a 27-year-old photographer loved sports. a graduate of virginia tech, described as happy-go-lucky. he found the love of his life in melissa ott. it was her last day producing the morning somehow, and she was in the control room watching as her fiance fell. the woman being veer viewed was shot in the back. she went through surgery, and is now in stable condition. the only surviver. it is a loss that has touched strangers too, who bring candles, and flowers, and message of support. wondering how so much life and love and promise can vanish so quickly. alison's boyfriend says that her last text to him said sleep well, sweet boy. her alma mater james madison university is opening up a scholarship fund in her memory.
through all of this pain and shock in losing their colleagues, what was remarkable to me was how these journalists kept going. they kept reporting the news about the search for the gunman, for the public. really, that shows a great deal of strength in that newsroom. >> i can't get over seeing the picture of them. and thinking that the photographer's fiance was actually in the control room. >> on her last day of work. >> they had celebrated. they said alison had brought in balloons. they were celebrating this new start to their future and to see it end this way is really tragic. >> there are no words to describe how sad it is, jana, thank you. now to the gunman. the crime and the motive. wdbj is the cbs affiliate in roanoke. vester flanagan had worked there as a reporter. he was fired in february of 2013 and disgruntled to this
day. in a manifesto after today's attack, he described hip self as a human powder keg. how the events unfolded. >> reporter: 24-year-old reporter alison parker and adam ward never saw him coming. police say it was a former reporter, vester flanagan, known on tv as brice williams, fired from the same roanoke tv station more than two years ago. after the shooting, flan began took to twitter and facebook posting his own video of the attack. around 6:45, investigators say flanagan fled the scene. at 11:00 a.m., police found his mustang at the roanoke regional airport, where they believe he got into a chevy rented earlier this month. 30 minutes later, a virginia state trooper spotted flanagan on i66. despite speeding away, they say flanagan crashed minutes later in the median.
190miles from where he started. police radio recordings captured what happened next. >> shooting, 16-mile marker. self-inflicted gunshot wound. >> reporter: flanagan later died at a hospital. >> it's obvious there was this gentleman was disturbed in some way of the way things had transpired at some point in his life. it would appear things were spiraling out of control. >> reporter: more evidence of that in a manifesto flanagan faxed to abc news after the attack. he pointed to the charleston church shooting as motivation and said he was the victim of discrimination at work for being a black, gay man. but wdbj station manager said those were fabricated and he fired flanagan because he was difficult to work with. >> he was sort of looking out for people to say things that he could take offense to.
and eventually after many incidents of his anger coming to the fore we dismissed him. >> reporter: it wasn't the first time flanagan portrayed himself as a victim, he filed a lawsuit against another tv station in florida in 2000, alleging racial discrimination. both sides settled the case a year later and it was dismissed. >> vester flanagan grew up in oakland, where his mother taught in the public school system. after high school flanagan went to san francisco state and got his start in television at kpix channel 5 in san francisco. over the years he also worked in san diego, sacramento, florida, and virginia. he has family in vallejo where neighbors now know him well. >> this average middle class neighborhood in vallejo woke up

the news today. >> i never seen it coming. you couldn't tell me that he did that. i can't believe it. i will never believe it, but it happened. >> reporter: flanagan got a radio tv degree at sf state in 1993. his father, vester sr. was a standout football player at humboldt state and a former green bay packer, described as a fixture in this neighborhood. >> the grandfather of the block, like a huge security blanket for us. >> reporter: now his family is grieving too. >> honestly, if i see him, i will just go give him a big hug. >> reporter: the flanagan family asked for privacy all day. but this evening, a car with family members and a spokesperson stopped at the house to make a statement. >> it is with heavy hearts and deep sadness we express our deepest condolences to the families of alison parker and adam ward. we are also praying for the recovery of vicki gardner. our thoughts and prayers at
this time are with the victims' families, and with wdbj television station family. >> reporter: the family didn't want to answer questions, but said they are heartbroken. in vallejo, noel walker, ktvu, fox 2 news. it's been 20 years since flanagan worked at kpix in san francisco, and former anchor woman, barbara rogers issued this statement. like so many other new employees, he just wanted to be on tv and do a good job. now he is on tv, but in the worst possible way. my condolences to all of the families who were affected by this tragedy. >> every year journalists are killed doing their jobs. it mostly happens overseas. rarely are journalists killed in america. one of the last journalists to be killed on u.s. soil was oakland reporter chauncey bailey, he was editor in chief of the oakland post. he was shot to death in 2007 on

before 4:00 this afternoon. the fire's point of origin is this burning gas meter next to a laundromat. police say a woman drove her white two door honda accord into the gas line. >> just a pretty big, loud boom and i had no idea at that point what had happened. i didn't realize the car had hit a gas line. >> reporter: the car caught a customer by surprise. he says he ran out to his car. >> i thank god i'm alive. >> reporter: the laundromat was the first to burn, followed by four other businesses, all destroyed. >> i think he's in shock. sad. >> reporter: mario was inside the restaurant when the fire broke out. all that's left, this cash register salvaged by a worker. >> it's devastating.

that fit the crimes. the tourist who was shot is from thailand. he is expected to make a full recovery. new evidence against juan sanchez, accused in the shooting death of a woman on san francisco's pier 14. as tara reports, the new evidence is in line with an autopsy report that revealed, the victim may have been struck by a ricochet bullet. >> reporter: francisco lopez sanchez showed little emotion, yawning, and closing his eyes on occasion. the victim struck the concrete walkway before striking kate steinly, killing her. >> i doubt an expert marksman could make that shot. a ricochet shot off a concrete surface. certainly not from a distance of 30 yards. >> reporter: public offender matt gonzalez says clearly this
was an accident, a misfiring of the firearm. so is there a chance that the judge could downgrade the murder charge? >> we're hopeful he will not find this is malice aforethought. >> reporter: most of the evidence presented in court was in line with the ricochet bullet theory. prosecute the picture of the flattened bullet used in the shooting, to two of kate steinle's -- according to initial statements made by lopez sanchez to police, he was firing a sea lion. the gun had been stolen just days before. sanchez is not charged with that crime. the public defender has called another firearms expert to the stand tomorrow. he is expected to explain how misfirings are not that uncommon with this particular type of gun.

which not only means they're inching closer to real games but they get to check out the renovation job in alameda. the team spent $8 million to upgrade it. certainly state of the art. as the team rolled through their first practice today, you could say the place actually exceeded expectations. >> everyone's talking about how nice it was. when i walked in, i just was in awe. it was even more than i expected. and you know, i can't find more things good to say about it, but we're very thankful for it. >> players coming in are fired up to be here. it's really a world class facility. we're excited to get started in it. >> match it on the field during the games, and things will really be looking good. at this stage of training camp, teams desperately looking for ways to get around the drudgery. the 49ers with a couple of days of spirited scrimmages for the
broncos before they play another of those, can we just get the preseason over with saturday against the broncos? nobody really knows what to expect from the niners this year. the defensive line has been a strength so far, which always makes things better. eric reed picked off a pass, as the two teams went at it this afternoon. he credits the work in the trenches for that success. >> easy to play db. the quarterback has to make a decision right now, or else he gets hit. we give those guys a lot of credit, because it starts with them. all right, needless to say with the news tonight, it's going to be a very challenging season for the 49ers. really, no one knows what to expect out of these guys. but hope for the best. >> can't wait to get the season started. >> thanks mark. thank you for joining us tonight. modern family is coming up next. >> we'll see you again tomorrow. for mornings on 2 beginning at 4:00 a.m.
that is so freaking funny. [ laughing ] i know, right? what? dad just wrote another classic one. tell her. oh! i don't know about "classic," but here we go. "if you're looking for a two-story house, i'm your man. "i'll tell you one story before you buy it and then another story after." luke: no, you didn't! [ both laugh ] tonight is the s.c.a.r.b. the southern california annual realtor's banquet. i think they know what it is. mm-hmm. it's the mother of all residential-real-estate banquets. now, for the last five years, gil thorpe has hosted, but as luck would have it, oking polyp removed, so they've asked me to..."phil in."
