Earlier today, a gunman shot and killed a Virginia news reporter and cameraman on live TV.

Police named former WDJB anchor Vester Flanagan, who was known on air as Bryce Williams, as the suspect.

Now, law enforcement sources confirm that Flanagan shot himself after being confronted by police on Highway 66 in Virginia. As of this writing, he is reported to be alive and in critical condition.

Sometime between Tuesday night and this morning, ABC News received a 23-page fax from someone claiming to be Bryce Williams.

Flanagan recorded the shooting with a GoPro and posted it to his Facebook and Twitter pages — which have since been taken down.

One bit of good news — Vicki Gardner, the woman being interviewed who was also shot, is now out of surgery and stable.

We will continue to update you on this developing story.
