Five people are dead after a shooting inside the newsroom of the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.
Police reportedly have a suspect in custody, who is a white male in his 20s. A shotgun was involved in the incident.
An intern for the paper, which is owned by The Baltimore Sun, tweeted “Active shooter 888 Bestgate please help us.”
Capital-Gazette crime reporter Phil Davis tweeted “A single shooter shot multiple people at my office, some of whom are dead.”
“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.”
“There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you’re under your desk and then hear the gunman reload,” Davis said.
He told the Baltimore Sun that the scene “was like a war zone.”
“I’m a police reporter. I write about this stuff — not necessarily to this extent, but shootings and death — all the time,” he said. “But as much as I’m going to try to articulate how traumatizing it is to be hiding under your desk, you don’t know until you’re there and you feel helpless.”
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also responded to the incident.
Gov. Larry Hogan tweeted: “Absolutely devastated to learn of this tragedy in Annapolis.”

How the New York media covered the Stonewall riots
The Stonewall riots were a six-night series of protests that began in the early morning of June 28, 1969, and centered around the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City.
Four days earlier, on June 24, 1969, the police, led by Deputy Inspector Seymour Pine, raided the Stonewall Inn and began arresting bar employees and confiscating liquor. But when Pine led a second raid on the 28th, patrons fought back. Approximately 150 people fled, regrouped on the street and stormed the bar, trapping the police inside. The protesters began throwing bricks, bottles and garbage, and attempted to set the bar on fire.
‘A wild, disgusting, ugly ride’: MSNBC analyst warns 2020 will be ‘desperate’ Trump running to avoid arrest
During a panel discussion with political pundits, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace warned that we're about to enter one of worst campaigns of our lives.
Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker noted that President Donald Trump's Orlando kickoff was essentially a repeat of his 2016 kickoff, with the same policies and same promises.
"It felt like déjà vu for both of us who covered the 2016 campaign because it was the same 'populist' messages, same grievances, same lines, even and the same response with the same crowd. And the same logo," Rucker said.
But it was MoveOn communications chief Karine Jean-Pierre that warned of a horrific election season as Trump runs a race not only for his presidency but for his life.
Senate Republicans just gave a lifetime appointment to one of the most anti-LGBT judges Trump has ever nominated
He thinks transgender people are "delusional."
He sees the fight for LGBT equality as a "clash of absolutes" where "religious liberty and sexual liberty" are forever at odds.
He says the Equality Act, which would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, is "weaponizing" the Supreme Court Obergefell marriage ruling against Christians.
He's said that "preventing sexual orientation-based discrimination cannot justify serious burdens on...constitutionally protected religious freedom."
