Trump, Pence respond to shooting at Maryland newspaper

However, an Anne Arundel County Police Department spokesperson told Fox News on Friday that it wasn't true that the suspect had mutilated fingers and they weren't sure how the rumor started.

A suspect is in custody after an active shooter was reported at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland around 2:30 p.m.

Ramos said on Twitter that he had set up an account to defend himself, and wrote in his bio that he was suing people in Anne Arundel County and "making corpses of corrupt careers and corporate entities". He filed a defamation claim in 2012 against the paper but the case was dismissed.

In a brief phone call with The Associated Press, Carl Hiaasen said his family "was devastated beyond words" by the senseless killing of his brother at The Capital Gazette.

Mr Krampf confirmed five deaths and said two people had superficial wounds.

A US official says the suspect was identified using facial recognition technology.

The official said investigators believe the suspect was attempting to prevent them from getting a fingerprint match.

The official wasn't authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Trump asks Saudi Arabia to increase oil production
Russia, Iraq, the UAE and Kuwait jointly have another million barrels, so there is spare production of 3 million barrels a day. A JXTG spokesman would not comment on individual deals but said: "U.S. crude is one of the candidates for replacing Iran oil".

The Capital Gazette is a daily newspaper and digital news site that is a part of Capital Gazette Communications.

A police officer speaks to the media near the scene of a mass shooting in Annapolis, the capital city of eastern US state Maryland, on June 28, 2018.

"We know that there were threats sent to The Capital-Gazette through social media", Krampf said. He said does not wish to be interviewed about the shooting at this time.

Gunn, the former Capital Gazette editor, said Rob Hiaasen was a "gifted editor who had an aura of an artist around him who made people want to make journalism a lovely craft".

Journalists were last killed inside the U.S.in 2015, when a disgruntled television journalist killed two former colleagues during a live broadcast, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, which tracks violence against journalists. An appeals court later upheld the dismissal. "Praying for those at the scene and for our community", Hogan said in a tweet.

But he also called for requiring gun owners to report lost firearms and for allowing law enforcement to temporarily take away guns from people determined by courts to be "potentially dangerous" to themselves or others.

Chase Cook, a reporter at the newspaper, said the shooting would not stop The Capital - the local print edition - from going to press. People could be seen leaving the building with their hands up.

"These are the guys that come to city council meetings, have to listen to boring politicians and sit there", Mr Buckley said. "They don't make a lot of money".
