A man who shot two journalists on live TV in the US state of Virginia has died after shooting himself, police say.
Vester Lee Flanagan, 41, an ex-employee of WDBJ7 TV known professionally as Bryce Williams, was in a car that was surrounded by police following a chase.
WDBJ7 TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were killed some seven hours earlier during an interview in the town of Moneta.
The gunman later uploaded a video of himself opening fire at close range.
The White House has urged Congress to rapidly pass gun control laws in the wake of this latest shooting in the US.
Virginia State Police said the suspect’s vehicle had been spotted on the Interstate 66 highway following the shooting, and crashed off the road after being pursued by officers.
“Troopers approached the vehicle and found the male driver suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” the force said in a statement.
He later died in hospital, a police spokesman said.
The Twitter account of Flanagan suggested he had held a grudge against Mr Ward, 27, and Ms Parker, 24.
Police said his utterances on social media the previous evening suggested the attack was pre-planned.
