There's a mood of overwhelming sadness hanging over the newsroom this morning.

Friends and colleagues from around the world are ringing in, offering their condolences and asking for the latest news.

The information we've got is basically the same as that being broadcast on the news reports -- that Simon was killed instantly in a drive-by shooting and Frank's critical but stable after going extensive surgery.

The only good news is that Frank's condition is stabilising.
