The son of a local Cox Communications executive was killed in a plane crash Thursday night near Atlanta.
David Jason Schorr was on board a small RV-7 airplane when the plane crashed into a residential neighborhood. Schorr was killed along with pilot Don Hershall Hall. No one on the ground was injured, and no houses were damaged.
RV-7s typically are experimental or homebuilt aircraft.
Schorr, 40, and Hall, 45, both lived in Cumming, Ga.
Schorr's father, Steve Schorr, is vice president of public and government affairs in Las Vegas for television provider Cox Communications, a position he has held for about two decades. He works as a company liaison to government officials and agencies in Southern Nevada and is involved with several civic and nonprofit groups in the region.
He previously was a television news anchor and is a member of the Nevada Broadcasters Association's Hall of Fame.
Schorr could not immediately be reached for comment.
