A court reporter for the Capital Gazette named Phil Davis tweeted, “A single shooter shot multiple people at my office, some of whom are dead.”

Davis then tweeted, “Gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees. Can’t say much more and don’t want to declare anyone dead, but it’s bad.”

Another horrifying tweeted from Phil Davis, “There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you’re under your desk and then hear the gunman reload”

Phil Davis says he is waiting to be interviewed by the police. He is safe.

Prayers for everyone at the Capital Gazette building.
