The suspect, Vester Lee Flanagan, posted a point of view video of the shooting on Twitter and Facebook:
“Before killing himself, Vester Lee Flanigan (who also goes by Bryce Williams) took to Twitter to explain his reasons for shooting dead WDBJ reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27.
Flanigan, who is African American, wrote that Parker made ‘racist comments’ and that a complaint was filed against her through the equal employment opportunity commission, but his station chose to hire her anyway.
As for Ward, Flanigan says that after working with the cameraman once, Ward complained to HR about the former general assignment reporter. It’s unclear what exactly happened between the two men …”
He said “racism” made him do it.
The SPLC has condemned the C of CC for spreading a “false narrative of a victimized white majority under siege by allegedly violent people of color in the United States.”
Update: ABC News has received a 23 page manifesto.
