Gunman kills at least five, injures others in Maryland newsroomBy Warren Strobel ANNAPOLIS, Md. (Reuters) – A gunman killed at least five people and “gravely injured” at least three others when he sprayed a newsroom in the Maryland capital of Annapolis with gunfire on Thursday, authorities said. The suspect was arrested soon after the attack at the Capital Gazette’s office, without exchanging gunfire with police. Phil Davis, a Capital Gazette crime reporter who was in the building at the time of the shooting, said in an interview with the Baltimore Sun that the newsroom looked “like a war zone.” Davis and others were hiding under their desks when the shooter stopped firing, the Capital Gazette reported.
