While threats were sent to the newspaper, it's still unconfirmed whether they were from the gunman.

Editor for the Capital Gazette, Jimmy DeButts, said he is devastated and heartbroken following the shooting.

County Executive Steve Schuh said the suspect has been taken into custody and was being questioned. In addition, the gunman was not carrying any identification, authorities said.

"A lawyer would nearly certainly have told him not to proceed with this case", the court wrote in the opinion, according to the Gazette.

Anne Arundel police confirmed that the building had been evacuated and that officers were searching it.

Police are treating the shooting as a local incident, with no links to terrorism, a law enforcement source told Reuters.

According to ABC 7, a shotgun was reportedly used in the incident, although authorities have not yet released any details about the weapon used or the person involved.

Jarrod Ramos, 38, has been identified as the gunman who opened fire on the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland., on Thursday afternoon, killing five and injuring several others.

Anne Arundel County Police Department spokesman Marc Limansky said officers were searching the building.

Police say the shooter is in custody and will be interviewed.

Two people who work in a law office on the fourth floor of the complex described flipping a desk and using to the block the door to their unit until the SWAT team arrived. The FBI's Baltimore field office has responded to the scene. Rather, he described journalists who spread his comment about vigilante squads as "vermin".

The Baltimore Sun reported the shooting happened inside the Capital Gazette newsroom, citing a Gazette reporter, Phil Davis, who was inside when the shooting happened. "I don't know why". He said officers must look for other dangers, such as bombs and other shooters. "But as much as I'm going to try to articulate how traumatizing it is to be hiding under your desk, you don't know until you're there and you feel helpless".

Although some Twitter users voiced concern for his safety, Davis clarified that "I was not tweeting from under my desk".

Another Twitter user who identified himself as a photojournalist for the Gazette posted images of the scene from outside the office. The Anne Arundel Medical Center, which is nearby the shooting scene, said staff there are treating two people with minor injuries, neither from a gunshot.

Krampf described the attack as "targeted" and said threats had been directed at the newspaper over social media that authorities were investigating.

The shooter entered the building with an improvised explosive device made of canisters of smoke grenades.

President Donald Trump tweeted in the wake of the shooting that his "thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families". White House deputy press secretary Linsday Walters said, "our thoughts and prayers are with all that are affected".

Police were dispatched to the Sun newsroom in Baltimore after the shooting, but the Sun reports that the police presence there was just a precaution.
