'It's bad': Capital Gazette reporter tweets account of newspaper shooting

Capital Gazette newspaper

Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley said police ran an active shooter drill last week.

Anne Arundel County Police Department spokesman Marc Limansky said officers are searching the building where the shooting was reported. "Rob was an editor and columnist at the paper, and one of the most gentle and amusing people I've ever known".

Marquardt told the Baltimore Sun he was not surprised to hear Ramos identified as the gunman. He said they must look for other dangers, such as bombs and other shooters.

A USA official briefed on the investigation has identified the suspect in a shooting at a Maryland newspaper as a white male who is believed to have carried a shotgun.

The gunman accused of killing five people in a vendetta against a Maryland newspaper barricaded the rear exit to prevent anyone from escaping and methodically blasted his way through the newsroom with a pump-action shotgun, cutting down one victim trying to slip out the back, authorities said Friday.

President Trump and Senate Speaker Paul Ryan have expressed sorrow at this disgusting shooting. "Praying for those at the scene and for our community".

Annapolis is located about 30 miles east of Washington, DC.

However, a law enforcement official has told the Associated Press that the suspect has been identified as Jarrod W. Ramos.

In an interview with The Capital Gazette's website, Davis said it "was like a war zone" inside the newspaper's offices - a situation that would be "hard to describe for a while".

"A single shooter shot multiple people at my office, some of whom are dead", Davis said on Twitter. The reporter added that he felt helpless.

The newspaper's office is guarded only by a glass front door.

However, after a little while, Phil Davis further said, "Ok, I was not tweeting from under my desk".

NBA Free Agency Rumors: Kawhi And LeBron Had A Chat

This is a breaking news story and has been updated throughout.

"We are there in times of tragedy".

The article said Ramos had contacted the woman on Facebook and thanked her "for being the only person ever to say, 'Hello, ' or be nice to him in school".

"We try to expose corruption".

"We get a threat call a day".

"I am devastated and heartsick to confirm the loss of my wonderful brother Rob today in the mass shooting in the newsroom at the Annapolis Capital Gazette", Hiaasen wrote.

US President Donald Trump arrives at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland, US, June 28, 2018.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families". "Thank you to all of the First Responders who are now on the scene", he said.

Ramos was identified with the help of facial recognition technology because of what the chief said was some kind of "lag" in getting results from the computer system used to analyze fingerprints.

The NYPD deployed units to all major media outlets in New York City as a precaution. Officials from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and FBI were aiding in the law enforcement response.

The ATF in Baltimore confirmed it was responding to the scene.

Police said they have evacuated and cleared the building but are still continuing to process it for evidence. Helicopter footage from the local Fox affiliate, WTTG showed law-enforcement escorting people out of the building with their hands over their heads. Scores of police vehicles were on the scene.
