Capital Gazette

A lone shooter opened fire inside the Capital Gazette newspaper offices in Annapolis, MD on Thursday. 5 people are confirmed dead. Police are still trying to determine whether the shooter acted alone.

Anne Arundel County police tweeted that a lone shooter is in custody. The gunman shot through a glass door to gain entry to the newspaper's editorial room.

The building did not have security.

Gazette reporter Phil Davis tweeted that multiple co-workers were shot. He did not declare anyone dead, but he said, "It's bad."

Liberal news outlets such as CNN -- a frequent target of President Trump for being purveyors of "fake news" -- employs Secret Service-level security at its downtown Atlanta offices.

The Capital Gazette is owned by the Baltimore Sun. Unlike CNN or MSNBC, the Gazette trains its reporters to avoid expressing political bias in their articles or on social media.

Davis said he and his co-workers dived under their desks when the shooting started. Davis, who covers crime for the paper, said the white male paused to reload his weapon before officers arrived and "surrounded the shooter."

  • pecancandy

    A very dangerous world, prayers to those that were affected.

  • Kemi

    Praying for peace, seem like a fallacy nowadays. But I’ll continue to keep the hope alive.

  • Miss Thang

  • cpatterson_22

    blame trump and republicans

  • Scromes1212

    If they had a armed guard at the door they would have at least had a chance. I don't understand not having security in these times. Just hire a couple vets. You will be more secure and you create a few jobs. Smh

  • Alicia.Ashe

  • FukkFolks2018

    Reporters all over are hot. Said this is what happens when the narrative keeps getting painted that the media is evil. They are simply people too. God bless the victims

  • Scromes1212

    It's a great website, you should check it out. They had a very derogatory post about Beyoncé on there a couple days ago. Check it out when you get a chance.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Money. Our capital city newspaper had a whole security squad in 2010. Now it's one dude who leaves at 3 pm daily EST M-F when the newsroom is staffed 24/7.

  • MissHarlem

    All that trump nut hugging wasn't needed for this post. People are being affected in a lot of ways and quite frankly it's dangerous. Save the nut hugging for a lighter note. These people lost their lives at work cut it out and knock it off.

  • RaginB

    I’m tryna figure out how he “stopped” shooting only cuz he was surrounded by police and not one of em pulled the “i was scared for my life” move.

  • Rainbowbelow

    If this paper trained their reporters to be politically neutral, why are u bringing politics into this senseless act?

  • Phillybruh

    He got that Muslim ban though

  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!
  • Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    explains so much, smh

  • Renee26

    Glad she pointed out that the WHITE shooter paused to reload... Domestic terrorist ... What's Dump got to say about that happening yet again??

  • MissHarlem

    He will say he's a good person who was lost etc

  • dru and neil

    So much senseless tragedy. I would say lately, but it's pretty much all the time, it's life.

  • Oh Tommie

    White male...but of course. They need to have a psychologist assigned from birth....something isn’t wired correctly

  • Renee26

    Ummm hmmm... They probably stopped for burgers before going to the station

  • Sushi

    Ok, I get no understanding...... white men can go into our schools, and places of employment pull out a gun, kill upteen people be taken into custody with no issue...... However, a Black man can flee from the cops with just a phone in his hand, and he end up having a conversation with St..Peter ( DEAD AS A DOORKNOB )... Am I missing something? Someone please explain this to me.

  • gail jones

    Yeah.... he is....of course..... *swigs my Amsterdam*

  • J2PC

    No, except that one is a deliberate act towards Black people. Those same murderers have the ability to not shoot, bully, tase or plant false evidence against Blacks, but have a j1m cr0w mentality to do otherwise.

    Ever notice: that they will do everything that they can to not shoot a White, Muslim, Sik or Asian for fear that their will be some sort of backlash or waking up a political hornets nest?? Well, can't have that so they do that which has been very easy since slavery.

    -our best bet is for the UN and other countries leaders to start calling out the hypocrisy & point out Human Rights issues with these deliberate shooting & killings of Black people as if we were runaway slave.

  • Stan4NoOne

    Another mass shooting... shit is wild.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    So sad but they aren't terrorists tho and most get arrested alive...

  • dontgetblocked


  • Sushi

    DAMN..... I could not have articulated that any better ...... The (REAL ISSUE) at HAND in any other way..... PEOPLE WAKE UP...., The issues at HAND, is not what as some of YOU think, It's not what you see or have been spoon fed by the MEDIA, any and all MEDIA, It is right in front of your eyes ...... Example, the BLACK community had an epidemic with Crack Cocaine, (Remember) was there a MASS intervintion.....??? NO.... But now that there is an OPIOID epidemic in the white neighborhoods, we the GOVERNMENT, need to intervene.... REALLY ...... We will argue about SAID stance on a party, But... fail to realise NO PARTY HAS OUR BEST INTERESTS AT HEART....Am I the fucking Dirt?? I'm sorry but are WE THE BLACK COMMUNITY the fucking Dirt ? ,,,,Wake UP my PEOPLE. ...

  • hottlanta

    No tweet from Dump to use at his campaign rallies for validation of his need to build his generational debt wall or his travel ban on Muslims. He must be white. I know when they briefed Dump the first thing he asked was, what color was he. They said white he went into his Florida Evans mode. DAYUM, DAYUM, DAYUM.

  • hottlanta

    I read today that Heather Locklear ASSAULTED (TOUCHED) a cop and lives another day. Reminds me of Zsa Zsa Gabor when she slapped a cop and it wasn't a bullet hole to be found on her body.

  • hottlanta

    He still hasn't signed that white man Domestic Terrorisism bill that been catching dust on his desk for months.

  • hottlanta

    What no ID he doesn't have his freedom papers on him. Trayvon Martin died because he didn't have his freedom papers on him.

  • hottlanta

    Home is unsafe as well with all of this domestic violence by the one's who is suppose to love us but they are loving us to death.

  • Lovely

    Sad, because Trump wouldn't even dows her out with water if she was on fire. I mean she literally has the 4 strike rule when it comes to Trump/Republicans, so I simply don't get it.

  • Lovely

    Cooning hard as hell. My grandmother said Coons are the decedent's of slaves who snitched on other slaves.

  • Lovely

    You have never lied..exactly!

  • hottlanta

    I tell people watch what he doesn't tweet. Sat up there and lied today in front of us today about that failed immigration bill. Tweeted and told Republicans to vote for the bill because he supported it. Then when asked about when it didn't pass he said he didn't support it and they can do what they want to do.

  • justlooking

    Went through that in
    Youngers days...anyone teying that that os going to catch a hot ass bullet. Period

  • Lovely

    I literally can not stand that poor excuse of a so called man.

  • Sushi

    So, I'm not the only one that is awoke......

  • the chosen one

    that was funny as he!!.

  • hottlanta

    Betta say it. I saw my dad whup my mom's azz and I told myself my kids will never see a man whup my azz/curse me out/disrespect me none of that. I can knock on wood they haven't. If they choose a man that does that to them they can't say they learned that from me. I am never too afraid to leave a unhealthy relationship. Last man I got into a fight with was their father and I knocked his azz down under the Xmas tree and the television fell on his head. Ain't had no problems since. Putting his hands on me. I got like Oprah from the Color Purple when Harpo put his hands on her.

  • hottlanta

    You know good and well he got a crime scoreboard in his office on his wall and an EXCEL spreadsheet with Muslims/Mexicans/Black/White criminals across the heading and the white boy column is full right about now.

  • Roderick2011

    Or a white woman can bite a police officer and not have a scratch on her?

    Or a white woman can get into a fight with a white female officer and they get entangled and the white female police officer ask her assistant to get some scissors.


  • Ghost

    Well I’m just sick of TRUMP and his zombies blaming all the damn crime in America on CHICAGO! This fool hates OBAMA and his home base so much that every time a crime , mass shooting or anything bad happens..Chicago is mentioned! Chicago is the 24th most dangerous city... that means there are 23 more dangerous cities where you can more likely to get killed, BUT yet Trump Jr. has his azz here (Chicago) yesterday trying to get support for a retail complex on the first floor of Trump tower! Snuck and put a BIG azz trump sign on the building for everyone to see without approval of local government! Well if Chicago is so damn bad... you, your hotel and family need to get the hell out of here! Sick of him painting Chicago as the crime capital of the country yet he’s trying to suck every dollar he can out of the city! Get the hell on!
    Okay... got it all out! I’m fine now...

    Good Morning folks!

  • Hmmm~?

    This world is fucked up and ass backwards. Never forget it!

  • P0shzZ0la

    BWAHAHAHA...I can't believe people here are calling out President Trump when the nut case Maxine Waters called for people to harm others just the other day and now we have this shooting. Come on now....! Fonda advocated putting a child in a cage with pedophiles. You people have it backwards. It's the libs, DemoCraps, Deep State and others who are pissed off because the election didn't go their way....PERIOD...! Get smart people because these anti-Trump people don't care about America, are fascist, prefer a dictator, want the country filled with illegals. promoting perverse lifestyles, killing free speech because they can't stand anyone's opinion but their own and destroying comedy, they protect and defend criminals and liars, telling people to firebomb people's cars, and more. They are putting this country in a civil war...but yet, everything that happens is Trump's fault? GET REAL PEOPLE....!
