True Virginia ShootingA Virginia shooting on Wednesday has left the small town of Moneta, VA in tears and utter shock after two innocent local news journalists were shot and killed on live television during an early morning report. The horrible news has swept the nation, and even celebrities are giving their condolences to the friends and family of WDBJ7-TV reporter, Alison Parker, 24, and photographer Adam Ward, 27, after their lives were so unfairly taken from them by a former disgruntled employee, Vester Lee Flanagan II, (who more commonly went by the name of Bryce Williams) who shot and killed himself a few hours after the murder.

Here is what Hollywood is saying about the Virginia shooting:
