The gunman — Vester Lee Flanagan, 41, also known as Bryce Williams — died in a hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot wound after being taken into custody by state police following an intense morning manhunt across the state. Reporter Alison Parker, 24, and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were fatally shot at close range while conducting an on-air interview for WDBJ, a CBS affiliate in Roanoke, about 240 miles (385 kilometers) southwest of Washington.

    Balotelli's return to the Rossoneri on a one-season loan deal has been met with derision in Italy, with pundits and most fans opposed to the striker's return to the club he left only a year ago. Balotelli spectacularly underperformed at Anfield, instead embellishing his reputation as a "liability" -- the view of former Reds legend Graeme Souness, among others. Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic and Milan have instigated a special code of conduct for Balotelli, a player who in the past has riled fans and clubs with his off-field antics, outrageous hairstyles and outings to nightclubs where he has enjoyed the odd cigarette. Balotelli has pledged to comply -- and with good reason.
