Capital Gazette Newspaper Makes Evening Announcement After Massacre Claims Five


Thursday afternoon a deranged armed terrorist shot up a Annapolis, Maryland newsroom, killing five and wounding even more. The shooter’s motive was reportedly a defamation lawsuit he filed against the Capital Gazette, which was thrown out of court for lack of rebuttal evidence.

Now, the newspaper has issued an announcement, just hours after the bloodshed that claimed so many lives.

According to ABC 7 Chicago’s Joshua McKerrow:

“Continuing to cover story with Capital journalists Chase Cook and Pat Ferguson. Thanks to our @baltimoresun colleagues who are here too. There will be a Capital Friday.”

The shooter will not win. The publication will carry on. Terrorists will not reach their goal.

Twitter was in full agreement. Check out the responses to McKerrow’s tweet below:
