(Reuters) – A man who had a long-running feud with an Annapolis newspaper blasted his way through its newsroom with a shotgun on Thursday, killing at least five people in one of the deadliest attacks recorded on a U.S. media outlet, authorities said. The suspect, described as a white man in his 30s who lives in Maryland, fired through a glass door, looked for victims and then sprayed the newsroom of the Capital Gazette newspaper group in Annapolis with gunfire, police and a witness said. Among the victims was Capital Gazette editor Rob Hiaasen, according the Baltimore Sun, which owns the newspaper group.
