Shooter opened fire on Capital Gazette newspaper employees in Annapolis

from WJLA in Washington

An active shooter was reported in the 800 block of Bestgate Road in Annapolis Thursday afternoon, police say.

The Baltimore Sun, which owns the Annapolis paper, is reporting that that’s where the shooting occurred. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Baltimore also confirms they are responding to the Capital Gazette’s address.

A Capital Gazette reporter tweeted moments ago that a single shooter shot multiple people in the office, and that some of those people are now dead.

Multiple sources confirmed to ABC7’s Brad Bell that the shooter was taken into custody, and that a shotgun was involved.

A reunification center for families has been opened at the Lord & Taylor at Westfield Annapolis mall.
