Loved ones mourn 2 journalists killed on air and Gov. Bentley gets some support for budget plan

Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for WBRC FOX6 News this evening.
 
Two journalists are murdered on TV

We are learning more about the gunman who shot and killed a TV reporter and cameraman in Virginia this morning. He was a disgruntled former employee of the station and used social media to spread video of his attack. We'll have the latest on the investigation and also look at how social media adds a layer of complexity to the way such shootings are covered by the media.
 
Jeb Bush is in Birmingham

GOP presidential contender Jeb Bush is in Birmingham today but without a lot of fanfare. We'll talk to political experts about why some candidates strike a lower profile while raising campaign funds.
 
Alabama budget proposal

Governor Robert Bentley is finally getting support for his budget ideas but it's coming from a freshman legislator. We'll take a look at the new proposal he's planning to push on WBRC FOX6 News at 5.

Those stories and more beginning at 5 on WBRC FOX6 News.
