Panay News - - SPORTS -

MARY­LAND – A gun­man has opened fire at a lo­cal news­pa­per of­fice, killing five peo­ple and in­jur­ing oth­ers in what po­lice said was a “tar­geted at­tack.”

Staff at the Cap­i­tal Gazette in An­napo­lis said the at­tacker, armed with a shot­gun and smoke grenades, shot through a glass door into the news­room.

United States me­dia have named a sus­pect held by po­lice as Jar­rod Ramos, who is re­ported to have un­suc­cess­fully sued the news­pa­per group in 2012 for defama­tion. Po­lice have not con­firmed a mo­tive. They said a white male sus­pect in his late 30s was taken into cus­tody at the scene of the shoot­ing and was be­ing ques­tioned. (
