At least five people were killed and at least two others were injured during a shooting described as “a targeted attack on The Capital Gazette” in Annapolis, Maryland, Thursday afternoon, local officials said, in one of the deadliest attacks involving journalists in U.S. history.
An unidentified suspect is in custody, Anne Arundel Sheriff Ron Bateman told Fox News.
During an evening news conference, Deputy Chief William Krampf of the Anne Arundel County Police said one person — a white male in his late 30’s who lives in Maryland — is in custody and being interviewed by investigators.
Krampf said the suspect “entered the building” on Bestgate Road “with a shot gun and he looked for his victims as he walked through the lower level.”
Authorities are working to notify family members of those who were killed, Krampf said, adding that the injuries to the at least two people who were wounded are “superficial” and “possibly from glass from the shot gun blast.”
