Funeral services will be held Tuesday in Roanoke, Virginia for the TV photojournalist who was killed last week.

Adam Ward, 27, and reporter Alison Parker, 24, were gunned down while doing a live interview during the WDBJ-TV morning news.

Monday night, more than 1,000 mourners attended a viewing at Salem High School in Virginia for Ward. He was a 2007 graduate of the high school.

Police say a former co-worker, Vester Flanagan, pulled the trigger, killing the two young journalists.

Flanagan later died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
