The "Capital Gazette" shooting suspect has been named as 38-year-old Jarrod Ramos, who sued the newspaper for defamation in 2013, reports say.

The fear journalists feel today is no different from the one high school students felt after Parkland or clubgoers felt after the Pulse or people at music festivals felt after Las Vegas.

Davis and other Gazette employees were still hiding when the shooting stopped: "I don't know why". POLICE HAD TROUBLE IDENTIFYING RAMOSAuthorities said he was not carrying identification at the time of his arrest and was not cooperating.

Journalist Rob Hiaasen's family is "devastated" by his death, said his brother, author Carl Hiaasen.

"We're trying to confirm what account that was and we're trying to confirm who actually sent them", Mr Krampf said. "His intent was to cause harm". The official wasn't authorized to discuss the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity. No defense attorney is listed, but the records suggest he could be represented by a public defender.

Phil Davis, a reporter for the Capital Gazette said that a single gunman shot through a glass door and opened fire into office of the Gazette.

In a subsequent tweet, Davis said he heard the sound of the gunman reloading what authorities later said was a shotgun.

Simon also remembered his friend McNamara, who he called "a careful, committed and lifelong journalist who first honed his craft as a sports reporter on the University of Maryland Diamondback, where I had the pleasure of working with him". "I said during that time, 'This guy is insane enough to come in and blow us all away'". She added: "And there I was sitting under a desk, texting my parents and telling them I loved them".

"I heard footsteps a couple of times", she said.

Police called the shooting a "targeted attack". A picture of Ramos was run through the Maryland Image Repository System, he said, and authorities were subsequently able to identify him. No terror outfit has taken responsibility for the shooting as yet.

"There is no active threat at this time", said Officer Andrew Lava, a NY police spokesman.

Police swarmed the area about four miles west of Maryland's state house to clear the scene and evacuate more than 170 occupants of the office building to a nearby mall.

In addition, investigators will try to determine if the suspect had been in to the newspaper office before.

"We did recover what we thought may have been an explosive device", William Krampf, acting chief of the Anne Arundel County Police Department, said.

The suit was dismissed by a judge who wrote Ramos had not shown "anything that was published about you is, in fact, false". An appeals court later upheld the dismissal.

Police at the crime scene are continuing to hold press briefings as the story continues to unfold.

Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley said the community is grieving the attack on their community paper. "They don't make a lot of money It's just immoral that their lives should be in danger". It is owned by the Baltimore Sun Media Group.
