  • Multiple fatalities have been reported during a mass shooting at Maryland's Capital Gazette newspaper headquarters

At least five people were killed and several more reportedly injured on 28 June 2018 during an apparent attack against a newspaper office in Annapolis, Maryland.

Police described the suspect as a "white, adult male". Police said they were confident that there were no more explosives at the scene.

The gunman shot his way into the building before opening fire on the newspaper staff.

One reporter has said a gunman shot through a glass door at "multiple employees" but police told the BBC they could not confirm details.

He then went on saying in a series of tweets, "There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload." a few minutes later, when the police intervened, the reporter said, "I'm now waiting to be interviewed by police, so I'm safe and no longer at the office".

Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Ryan Frashure said that officers arrived within about a minute of when they were alerted to the incident, and did not exchange gunfire with the suspect before taking him into custody.
