Vester Lee Flanagan, who worked at WDBJ for one year using the name Bryce Williams, was responsible for the shooting of a reporter, Alison Parker, and cameraman Adam Ward earlier this morning in Roanoke, Virginia.
He live tweeted the shooting on his now suspended Twitter account. He also filmed the murder using his smartphone, a video that was since taken down.
A coworker reported that the news agency received a 23-page fax from Williams this morning.
ABC: “Sometime between Tuesday night and this morning, ABC News received a fax from someone claiming to be Bryce Williams.” 23 pages.

Reports from local police confirm that he has taken his own life with the same gun. More as we have it.
