In an interview with WJLA, a man who’s office is across from the Capital-Gazette explained that the shooter seemed like he was looking for targets.
He said that he was on the phone with a client when he heard huge bangs.
“I poked my head around the corner of my desk, so I could see out our front door into the front door of the Capital-Gazette, and I saw guy, a guy holding the gun. The door of the Capital-Gazette had been blown to pieces, it was an shattered pieces on the carpet and this guy was holding a big shotgun, and moving across the entrance of the Capital-Gazette office, pointing the gun deeper into the office, like he was targeting people.”
He said that he heard indistinct shouting after another few minutes before there were more gunshots. He said he only saw the gunman for a second.
“I ducked my head back behind the wall as soon as I saw the guy, but I did not hear him say anything distinct,” he said.
He said he then called police and that they arrived extremely quickly. He was told to shelter in place and they were able to get the shooter quickly.
“I saw a young woman who looked like she had been hurt, she was on the ground,” he revealed. “There was a bunch of blood on the floor. I assume [she was injured].”

Former Tea Party congressman and Trump-supporter-turned-never-Trumper may announce 2020 presidential run
A same-party primary challenge against a sitting president is not unheard of. Five members of a sitting president’s party would be extraordinary.
Currently, only former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld has officially declared he is running for the Republican nomination for president.
But as The Washington Post just reported, there are four more Republicans in the wings, “inching” closer to declaring their candidacies.
‘Clearly a willing agent of a foreign government’: Presidential historian alarmed by Trump bowing to Russia
Presidential historian Jon Meacham has concluded that President Donald Trump appears to be a "willing agent of a foreign government."
The Pulitzer Prize-winning presidential biographer was alarmed by Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's appeasement of Russia, in the face of its attacks on U.S. democracy and its aggression against Crimea and other neighbors.
Meacham told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" the situation was unprecedented in American history.
"(It's) as gloomy as at any point in the history of the country, in terms of a president's conduct of our policy toward a foe and/or a rival, depending on how you want to characterize Russia," Meacham said. "One of the great mysteries of the age, to me, continues to be how the party that was so vital to the defeat of Soviet totalitarianism has decided to support a president who is enabling and being in many ways complicit with the totalitarian heir to that system."
Harvard constitutional law prof says Trump’s ‘treachery and betrayal’ are now clear — and there’s only one solution
House Democrats continue to move in a plodding and methodical way toward the impeachment of Donald Trump. On Aug. 8, the House Judiciary Committee, under the leadership of Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., announced the formal launch of impeachment proceedings.
But the Democratic Party's leadership is also sending mixed signals, vacillating between being relatively direct about their desire to remove Trump from office and then signaling a clear lack of enthusiasm for actually doing so.
