An employee terminated from the Fox TV affiliate in Texas drove to New York City in January and shot himself outside News Corporation’s Midtown Manhattan headquarters. He died at a hospital shortly afterwards.

Before shooting himself, Philip Perea, formerly a producer at KTBC FOX 7 in Austin, handed out leaflets describing how he believed Fox News had ruined his career.

Perea was a producer at KTBC FOX 7 in Austin until he was terminated last May after being “accused of being disruptive, threatening, and insubordinate,” according to reporting by the Austin Chronicle.
