A young man of American journalist Alison Parker, killed yesterday during a live broadcast, Chris Hurst shared with users of photographs and wrote a touching letter in which he promised to share with all of its history.
We have always kept it a secret, but we Alison were in love. Just recently we started living together. I'm just in shock. We were together for almost nine months. Those were the best nine months of my life. We even wanted to marry. and only celebrated her 24th birthday.
She was the brightest woman I have ever met in my life. And somehow she loved me. She's insanely loved his family, his brother. It was another family-WDBJ7 channel colleagues. She worked with Adam (operator, became the second victim of the offender-ed.) every day. They were a team. Honestly, I am very sorry for his bride-she is the producer of the morning show.
I will share the history of Alison, which was filled with life, love, dreams and amazing journalistic work. She recently finished working on the incredible story of child abuse. It was a fantastic job. Your thoughts and prayers mean a lot to me

Alison's father also gave an interview to one of the publications:
Our whole family is completely devastated. My grief is unbearable. Alison was our Sun, it was such a bright, always shone. And life of such a person was interrupted because of another madman with a gun.
Alison succeeded in all that did was all loved. Us she loved madly and talked every day with each of our families. Our family is comforting only that though her life was short and it was filled with happiness. But her spirit will remain with us forever.
The second killed turned out to be the operator of Adam Ward, who was engaged with the producer of the morning show WDBJ7 Melisoj Ott. The girl was in the room and saw her future husband shot on the spot. Already dying, Ward was able to film the man who shot at them with a colleague.
This shows how Adam was put to work. In the last minutes of his life, he turned the camera so that it was visible man, had shot at them,
one colleague told journalists.
According to friends of Adam, he was an amazing man. He and Alison Parker after graduating universities came to WDBJ7 channel trainees. Later they became true professionals in their field and a strong team. Together they managed to develop for about a year, covering important news and removing tags on social themes.
