US: 5 killed in shooting at office of Capital Gazette

In the United States, five people were killed in a shooting at the offices of the Capital Gazette, a daily newspaper published in Annapolis, a historic city an hour east of Washington last night.

Authorities said, the shooter, a male in his 20s, has been apprehended and being interrogated. For now, the shooting is being treated as a local incident and not one that involves terrorism.

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

President Donald Trump has been briefed on the shooting, White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters said.
