Schools in the area have been locked down. They are also planning on bringing in counsellors and such for the children immediately.


Why would they need to bring in councilors to the schools if they had not witnessed it or had the incident occur at the school?


It was all over live TV this morning in that area. A lot of them probably saw it as it happened.

Looks like there was a better image of the shooters face in there as well....



Sure is an uncanny resemblance to Jeffrey Hurant, the CEO of Rentboy.com who was arrested Tuesday morning. And he did not seem very happy with the media yesterday.

That should be a good bit clearer on the actual video too. I hope they get the bastard.

Announcing it was a disgruntled employee.

They probably would have been at home at the time and if they did happen to see it, wouldn't it be the parents to discuss it with them?

I still don't understand why the councilors are needed.

What you said and the fact that it is blowing up all over Facebook, Twitter, etc. locally. The video is making the rounds like wildfire then schools are locked down...

They are just making counsellors available to the students who feel like they need it. Nobody will be forced to take part.

Shooter is now being chased on I-81 North apparently. LEO has name and license plate of shooter as well.

I suppose it's possible that they're chasing him on foot.

Down an interstate.

For over 20 minutes.

And nobody thought to tackle him.

Probably a case of school administrators afraid that they will be fingered by someone as not having done enough to respond to the tragedy.

So it looks as though it was a disgruntled employee, I think we can therefore put this down to being yet another lunatic with a gun who lost his mind and all sense of perspective.

Chances are if they know that then they will be probably chasing him by now. They need to make sure he doesn't have the opportunity to pull over and take anyone hostage.

Hopefully they'll catch him alive, but I have a feeling he's probably going to put a bullet in his own skull before they do that.

Police think the shooting suspect headed north on I-81 and is in Staunton near I-64. Here is the alert:

Lester Lee Flanighan (unknown spelling) light skinned black make 6'3" 250lbs 2009 Ford Mustang gray in color VA license plates: WZE-8846


Source

So they know who he is and are hot on his tail.....

This was a local reporter reporting on tourism. Thank God this wasn't middle of the day on Saturday or Sunday or there would have been a lot more fatalities. WDBJ7 is my local news source and my heart is breaking for the reporters, staff and loved ones of these two young people. Reports are that the gunman is being chased on I81. I doubt they take him alive. Please pray for our community and everyone who loved the people that were killed. Always leave the people you love with a kind word because you just never know.

Shooter is being reported to be a disgruntled employee or former employee…..

Dsigruntled, huh? Imagine that. Maybe the media told lies about him on the air ruining his life or something like that.

The media dripping lies about world events? Nooo…

Resemblance is there and they are both "on the job" in that pic so those two pieces of the story add up at least.
