Foxnews saying the police sent them an update stating "there may be additional shooters and there may be bombs" - nothing confirmed yet, so just need to see what gets reported, "authorities believe they may have the only suspect"...

Information is all still coming in at this point

20 people shot

Police think only one gunman.

If the shooter was an employee or ex-employee, than this is probably more of a "workplace" -type mass shooting, in which the motives are known and understandable.

Compare that to other well-publicized mass shootings in which there is no relationship between perp and victims, and the motives are never known.

Reminder that the Wray/Rosenstein Russia hearing just wrapped up... but it looks like we have something else to talk about this news cycle.

Sources have conflicting information. MSNBC says no deaths, others including someone claiming to be inside, said there are.

FOX & CBS both have four fatalities.

MSNBC's "lead investigating source" just stated that no confirmed fatalities nor a subject in custody.

This is strange.

Shep Smith just reported that one of the victims texted “There is nothing more terrifying than being under a desk and hearing people getting shot, and then the shooter reload”.

I bet it’s even worse when you have zero way to defend yourself. Condolences to the victims and their families.

Sometimes news stations choose to not confirm fatalities until the police say a number. Most other sources are reporting that there are. The Crime Reporter from the paper on Twitter said the guy shot through the front door and shot multiple people in his office. He said its very bad in there.

There's an intern for the newspaper who tweeted that a man some are identifying as the editor, was among those shot:


Anthony Messenger @amesscapgaz

@baltimoresun John macnamara has been shot @AACOPD

2:43 PM - 28 Jun 2018


His Capital Gazette profile identifies him as a writer for the paper though and editor of the Bowie Blade-News and the Crofton-West County Gazette.

So do we think a person/people or the paper itself were targeted?

Crime reporter, Phil Davis, from the Capital Gazette (owned by Baltimore Sun) has been tweeting too.


Phil Davis @PhilDavis_CG

A single shooter shot multiple people at my office, some of whom are dead.

Phil Davis @PhilDavis_CG

Gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees. Can't say much more and don't want to declare anyone dead, but it's bad.

3:45 PM - 28 Jun 2018 from Maryland, USA



Phil Davis @PhilDavis_CG

There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload

Based on what im hearing it sounds like the entire building was a target. So I'd say they targeted the paper. No evidence yet as to why though.

a reply to: DAVID64 The cops got this guy, but they're also locking down Newsies up and down the Atlantic Seaboard, so he may be spilling some beans on more shooters.
