From the NY Daily News….
Terrified employees at a rural Maryland newspaper threw themselves underneath their desks when a shotgun-wielding man stormed into their newsroom and opened fire on Thursday, killing five people and wounding several others, according to eyewitnesses and authorities.
A suspect was arrested shortly after shots rang out at the Capital Gazette’s office in Annapolis around 3 p.m., Anne Arundel County executive Steve Schuh said during a press conference at the scene.
“I don’t know what to say except our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families,” Schuh said of the five victims.
Schuh said multiple people were “gravely injured” in the shooting.
A federal law enforcement official told the Associated Press the suspect is a white male armed with a shotgun. The official said the suspect wasn’t cooperating with investigators, who were trying to interrogate him Thursday afternoon.
