MONETA, Va. — The father of the TV reporter who was killed during an on-air interview in Virginia this morning says his grief is “unbearable.”
Andy Parker told The Washington Post that his wife first learned of the shooting in a text message from WDBJ-TV.
About an hour after the shooting, a senior manager at the station called the family to say Alison Parker had been killed.
The gunman — a former colleague who’d been fired from the station — apparently recorded the shooting that also left cameraman Adam Ward dead and posted video of it on social media.
Andy Parker says he refuses to watch it.
