AP: ‘Several’ people dead after shooting at Maryland newspaper building
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Officials say several people have died in a shooting at a building where a Maryland newspaper is housed.
The Baltimore Sun, which owns the Annapolis newspaper, says a reporter told them of the shooting Thursday afternoon.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says it responded to reports of the shooting.
Marc Limansky is a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Police Department. He says officers are searching the building in Annapolis where the shooting was reported. He says the situation is “active and ongoing.”
On TV reports, people could be seen leaving the building with their hands up, as police officers urged them to depart through a parking lot and officers converged on the building.
