The Capital Gazette shooting is a mass shooting that occurred at the offices of The Capital and the Maryland Gazette newspapers at 888 Bestgate Road in Annapolis, Maryland on June 28, 2018.[2]

The Anne Arundel County Police Department reported that the shooting began around 2:34 PM, and involved multiple fatalities, and multiple other victims being shot.[3]

Conflicting reports[vague] quickly developed as to whether the shooter was in custody or not, with early erroneous reports indicating that the shooter had been captured, and later reports indicating that the shooter had not been located. County police had people leave the building with their hands visible, with those people being taken to a nearby shopping mall to regroup.[citation needed] CBS News reported that four people had been killed in the shooting.[1]

Maybe - but the guy has a history of conflict with he paper that long predated anything from Milo - eg this article on a case that went to appeal and was dismissed -

Jarrod Ramos of Laurel made the defamation claim in Prince George's County Circuit Court in 2012 after a 2011 column by then-Capital staff writer Eric Hartley about Ramos' guilty plea to criminal harassment.

Prince George's Circuit Court Judge Maureen M. Lamasney dismissed Ramos' claim in 2013, saying the article was based on public records and Ramos presented no evidence it was inaccurate.
