Jarod Ramos, 34, has been identified by authorities as the man who stormed The Capital Gazette newspaper office in Maryland, killing five people and injuring several more.

Further down the page the subheadline reads: "Laurel man, the suspected gunman, in custody". Krampf said authorities would do everything they could to "get this investigation right".

Acting Anne Arundel County Police Chief William Krampf told reporters that Ramos was "prepared" and on a mission "to cause harm" Thursday.

"This person was prepared today to come in, this person was prepared to shoot people".

Among the victims was veteran journalist and columnist Rob Hiaasen, 59, brother of novelist Carl Hiaasen.

"He doesn't deserve us to talk about him one more second", Altomare said.

"The Capital is our hometown newspaper", Schuh said. "Gunman shot through the glass door of the office and opened fire on multiple employees", reporter Phil Davis wrote on Twitter.

"5 shot dead at The Capital", read the headline of the article written by ten journalists on the day five of their colleagues were killed.

Law enforcement in Baltimore and New York City deployed protective forces to major media outlets as a precaution, authorities said.

Speaking at the White House on Friday, President Donald Trump expressed his condolences. "Violence is never tolerated in any form, no matter whom it is against".

The suspect had what was apparently a long-standing feud with the paper, and a history with the Anne Arundel County Police Department. Associated Press/Patrick Semansky The evidence "shows what we knew we would find, which is that we have one bad guy and for his own reasons he chose to do what he did yesterday", he said, adding: "This was a targeted attack".

People were later seen leaving the newspaper's office with their hands over their heads while armed police officers stood nearby. Surviving journalists remained defiant and published a Friday edition of the Capital Gazette this morning.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives confirmed agents from the Baltimore office were responding to a "shooting incident" at the Capital Gazette.

"I'm a police reporter".

Davis told the paper he and others were still hiding under their desks when the gunman stopped firing.

"I was shocked", said Gibb, who runs a nonprofit arts outreach program and grew up in Annapolis.

"I was breathing really loud and was trying not to, but I couldn't be quiet", she said.

"And there I was sitting under a desk, texting my parents and telling them I loved them", she said.
