Just saw this and I have to say, that video was chilling to the bone.

Also just read a post saying the suspect is heading towards northern VA. I hope they catch him soon.

My heart goes out the injured and families of those killed.

Very sad.

When one never accepts "the story" as being true, it really doesn't matter what "they" say now does it?

Local news says the name circulating of the shooter IS NOT the correct one.

Uh ohhh, they already pulled the video, now they're changing names…

Check the top of the list. This has to be him. But the name is "Vester".

Has worked at Eyewitness 9 News, so he is in the same line of work as the victims. Seems to fit.

Yes, it seems that the name is Vester, not Lester.
Probably a miscommunication when the alert went out from the police.

Apparently the birth date reported match also.

I've been there a thousand times at least. Days and nights have been spent fishing and boating on Smith Mountain Lake. I would have never guessed something like this would occur in such a small community as we have here. I live right down the way.

They are still looking for the shooter even now. The local news is streaming live now as the news station is discussing it.

Come to find out the reporter and the cameraman were engaged. They were together.

Sad for the families. Sad for this community.




It's crazy isn't it? I have family that have a summer home down there. Never would imagine something like this happening in a place like that.

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



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


Anyone else notice a resemblance?


So is that the shooter or not?

Changed: But they do lie, all the time.

Not the chase and helicopter footage, the shootout, the body on a gurney, you can believe all that (it happened live, too).

Yes, from what is being reported on CBC, the lady being interviewed was a member of the local chamber of commerce.

No - the shooter is believed to be Vester Lee Flanagan a former employee - that photo is unrelated and is of a Jeffrey Hurant who was arrested Tuesday and is the CEO of Rentboy.com or whatever that male escort website was

VSP says they are NOT engaged in pursuit of the suspect but are now searching for him. There's also at least one LE helo up. Saw something for a news helo up as well with a feed, trying to find it.

I wonder if the reporter could have stopped the shooter if she was armed?



Welp, didn't even make it off the first page before politicizing. Good for you!

For the record... They are still showing the complete video on the news now along with the stills of the shooter. So pulling the video from being shown is simply not happening.
