Five people were killed and two others injured after a gunman, armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades, opened fire in the newsroom of a Maryland newspaper in a “targeted attack”.
Among the dead were four journalists and one staffer. The suspect, 33-year-old Jarrod Ramos, has now been arrested.
William Krampf, Anne Arundel county’s acting police chief, told media last evening that officers were investigating a possible past dispute between the gunman and the newspaper’s staff.
Despite the setback, the Capital Gazette has published today’s edition.
