A white male walked into the offices of Capital Gazette Communications near Annapolis with a shotgun and opened fire, killing five people and injuring two others, Anne Arundel County Police said.
Deputy Chief William Krampf said the two injuries were “superficial,” possibly related to broken glass from the gun blasts.
The victims were identified as Robert Hiaasen, Wendi Winters, Rebecca Smith, Gerald Fischman and John McNamara.
Laurel resident Jarrod Ramos, 38, was taken into custody by police and later charged with five counts of first-degree murder. Ramos had previously sued the company for defamation and lost.
