The Baltimore Sun, which owns the Annapolis newspaper, says a reporter told them of the shooting Thursday afternoon. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says it is responding to reports of the shooting.

Marc Limansky, the spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Police Department, says officers are searching the building in Annapolis where the shooting was reported. He says the situation is “active and ongoing.”


Reports say that people could be seen leaving the building with their hands up, as police officers urged them to depart through a parking lot and officers converged on the building.

Phil Davis, a crime reporter at the newspaper, tweeted while he waited to be interviewed by police. He said the gunman shot through a glass door to an officer and opened fire on employees. He said he didn’t want to declare anyone dead, but he said the situation was bad.
