Virginia shooter’s father was a former NFL football player for the Packers

Today Vester Lee Flanagan II took the life of two young reporters in Virgina, but this story keeps getting crazier and crazier. 

TMZ is reporting that Vester is the son of a former NFL Draft Pick.

Vester Flanagan Sr. was a ninth round draft pick by the Packers in 1961 when Vince Lombardi coached the team. He played his college ball at Humboldt St. and was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 1975.
This is pretty sad, and we pray for the families involved.
