A man who fatally shot himself outside News Corp’s New York headquarters was a former employee of a Fox News affiliate, Pervaiz Shallwani and Heather Haddon wrote Monday for The Wall Street Journal.
The Wall Street Journal report, attributed to “a law enforcement official,” says the man, Phillip Perea, worked out of a station in Austin, Texas. He was “handing out fliers” that blamed Fox News for having “ended my career,” right before he shot himself:
A suicide note and a gun were recovered at the scene, the official said. Mr. Perea took to his Twitter page about an hour before the shooting, further criticizing his former employer and linking to a more than 8-minute YouTube video laying out his complaints.
