Journalists stand in tribute to victims of WDBJ shooting


(CNN)Reporters, camera operators and journalism colleagues everywhere openly struggled with their shock and grief on social media Wednesday after TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were shot dead while reporting live on air in Virginia.

It was, perhaps, an unusual display of emotion for people typically trained to keep feelings to themselves.

In the hours after the slaying of the two WDBJ-TV journalists, anchors, reporters and entire newsrooms posted tributes and photos in solidarity with the fallen journalists. Vicki Chen, a 24-year-old investigative producer with KVUE in Austin, Texas, called on her colleagues to use the hashtag #WeStandWithWDBJ.
