Two journalists are killed - level 2
In Virgina, somebody shot two television journalists and killed them. Everything was broadcast on live TV.
The boyfriend of one of the reporters tweeted shortly after the incident that they wanted to get married, and that they had just moved in together.
The person who was being interviewed was also shot in the back and is in critical condition.
Virginia's governor said on a Washington DC TV interview that police are in pursuit of the shooter. The shooter could be a disgruntled employee of the TV station.
Difficult words: broadcast (to send to people’s TVs or radios), pursuit (the action of pursuing somebody – trying to catch them), disgruntled (angry or dissatisfied).
