Five People Shot Dead in Maryland Newsroom – Police Sent to Protect Newsrooms in NYC

Five people at a local newspaper, The Capital Gazette, are reportedly dead and a suspect is in custody after a mass shooting in Annapolis, Maryland. The building is now secured, and a law enforcement in a briefing just after 4:30 PM would only say "several" people are dead, until the end when it was announced that five people were dead.

Other reports put the number of dead at four. The shooter was only identified as male.

In response the NYPD has sent police to protect major newsrooms across the city.

No motive is known at the moment.

Many on social media are pointing out that just two days ago the former Breitbart editor and alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos reportedly said, “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down."

Others are noting that President Donald Trump repeatedly has called the mainstream media "the enemy of the people."
