The hashtag #WeStandWithWDBJ is starting to trend around the Twittersphere as media outlets around the world send their thoughts to WDBJ7 after two journalists were fatally shot during a live broadcast.

Alison Parker and Adam Ward were killed when reporting live Wednesday morning (US time) in Virginia. The gunman, a former employee, allegedly opened fire on the pair during an interview.

The tragic circumstances have led journalists around the world to post their tributes and thoughts to social media, with many saying today they are proud to be a journalist and work in the media.

The hashtag is reminiscent of the harrowing Charlie Hebdo situation, when a gunman opened fire on the team during an editorial meeting.

#JeSuisCharlie (I Am Charlie) began trending soon after the event occurred, with many cartoonists using the words to create cartoons in the backing of free speech.
