Belo Executive Steve McIntosh Gunned Down Outside Daughter’s School

Steve McIntosh, a vice president and general manager at Belo, was fatally gunned down on Friday evening in front of his three-year-old daughter.

The shooting occurred as McIntosh was picking his daughter up from her Arlington montessori school, according to Belo’s WFAA (video above).

The suspected gunman, who committed suicide following the shooting, was a University of Texas at Arlington student who had recently sought counseling from McIntosh’s wife, a UTA staff-member.

McIntosh oversaw advertising and financial services for Belo’s group of stations.  He began his broadcasting career in 1990 as an accounting assistant with Tulsa’s KOTV, a Belo station at the time, and went on to hold management positions at WFAA and KIRO, before moving on to become a staffer with the stations’ parent company.
