At Least 5 Dead in Maryland Newspaper Shooting

At least five people are reportedly dead and at least 20 others were injured in a shooting at a Maryland newspaper on June 28.

Phil Davis, a crime reporter for the Capital Gazette, tweeted, “Gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees. Can’t say much more and don’t want to declare anyone dead, but it’s bad.”

Capital Gazette intern Anthony Messenger tweeted that sportswriter John McNamara is among the victims, although the extent of his injuries is not yet known.

The shooter, who has yet to be identified, has been apprehended. He is a white male and is in his 20s.

More to come.
