Vester Flanagan aka Bryce Williams sued WDBJ for racism
Police have identified the suspect from Wednesday morning’s tragic shooting of two Virginia news station employees. It would appear the shooter is a former employee of the same station where the victims worked.
Vester Flanagan, who worked as a reporter for WDBJ for roughly a year under the name Bryce Williams, shared social media videos of himself committing the heinous murders hours after he shot 24-year-old Alison Parker and 27-year-old Adam Ward. Flanagan also sent Tweets indicating he had personal issues with both victims while working with them.

Flanagan reportedly shot himself when confronted by authorities and was in critical condition.
As it turns out, Flanagan filed a lawsuit against WDBJ after he began a new job as a news anchor at NBC News Channel 40. He was suing for racism.
