Shooter Says Motivation For On Air Attack Was Victim Making “Racist Comments”
The suspect, identified as Vester Flanagan, otherwise known as Bryce Williams, was a disgruntled ex-employee of news network WDBJ.
In an extraordinary series of tweets, which included point of view videos Flanagan posted of himself shooting Ward and Parker, the gunman said that Parker had made “racist comments”.
“They hired her after that?” Flanagan subsequently tweeted.
Twitter suspended the account within minutes of the tweets being posted.
