Five people have died and several others are hurt after a shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper building in Annapolis, Maryland, local and federal officials say.
The names of the dead were not released immediately. The suspected shooter is in custody, and authorities are questioning him, officials said at a news conference Thursday afternoon.
"I don't know what to say other than our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families, and we take comfort knowing that they are in God's embrace," Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh said.
Injured victims are being treated at R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma in Baltimore and Anne Arundel Medical Center, the county executive said. Several are "gravely injured," Schuh said.
The shooter opened fire at 888 Bestgate Road, and the call for an active shooter came in at 2:34 p.m, Capt. Russell Davies with the Anne Arundel EMS confirmed to NBC News.
First responders arrived within 60 seconds, Gov. Larry Hogan said.
