    At least five people were killed and several others were "gravely injured" during a shooting at the newsroom of the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland, Thursday afternoon, local officials said. An unidentified suspect is in custody, Anne Arundel Sheriff Ron Bateman told Fox News.

    A possible motive was unclear.
    They're still questioning the guy. He's young--in his 20s.

    The shooter was found hiding under a desk. (Seriously)

    This makes me wonder if he was just the mook left holding the bag while some other guys got away.

    They're now saying he's in his late 30's.

    If true, as reported by someone in the media, is very strange ....

    That he himself somehow mutilated his own fingerprints? If so , hmmm?

    I know, I know, is still very early in the investigation, and more times than not, the facts that surface later, differ from the first reports we hear.

    Whatever the hell his motive was, holds no water with me ...

    As Mr. ABC always says jokingly, that I would make a great "hanging judge."

    Surprising he didn't go out in a hail of gunfire or offed himself,would have probably saved people tax dollars bringing him to court and putting him in jail.

    The shooter's name is Ramos. Sorry DUpipo...

    Jarrod Ramos: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know
    https://heavy.com/news/2018/06/jarrod-ramos/
    A 38-year-old man has been identified as the suspect who opened fire at the Capital Gazette office in Maryland, killing at least five people in a “targeted attack” on the news organization, police said. He had previously filed a defamation lawsuit against The Capital newspaper, which was dismissed in 2013.

    The suspect, identified by NBC News as Jarrod Ramos, is in police custody. He has not yet been charged. Police were executing search warrants at his home in Laurel, Maryland.

    “He was prepared to shoot people. His intent was to cause harm,” Acting Anne Arundel County Police Chief William Krampf said at a press conference. He said it will take time to determine the specific motive and to complete the investigation. Threats were made to the Capital Gazette over social media prior to the shooting, but police are working to determine if they were sent by the suspect, Krampf said. Krampf said it is not believed he was targeting anyone specifically at the newspaper, just the newsroom itself.

    The shooting happened about 2:30 p.m. Thursday at the newsroom just outside of Annapolis in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Police said the suspect is a white male. Officials say he was armed with a “long gun,” and did not exchange gunfire with police before he was taken into custody after hiding somewhere in the building, underneath a desk. According to authorities, he has not been “forthcoming” with interrogators.

    “The investigation has just started,” Krampf said at a press briefing. “We’re going to be quite a while in determining what occurred, why it occurred, how it occurred.”

    Two people were wounded, but suffered “superficial” injuries. A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help the victims and Capital Gazette staff. Capital reporter Chase Cook tweeted, “I can tell you this: We are putting out a damn paper tomorrow.”

    Here’s what you need to know about the suspect and the shooting. This post will be updated as more information is made available about him...
