    Vester Flanagan was a former reporter who went by the on-air name “Bryce Williams”.

    FOX News has obtained a copy of Flanagan’s resume from 2009, and it shows his news career started in Savannah, Georgia in 1997. He had intermittent reporter jobs along with positions in customer service.

    He worked at WDBJ in 2013, where station manager Jeff Marks described Flanagan.

    (Marks) ”He was sort of looking out for people to say things that he could take offense to…”

    Marks says Flanagan was fired for anger issues and escorted from the station by police.

    Flanagan died at a Virginia hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot wound a few hours after the news crew was shot and killed.
