Annapolis: A man brandishing a long gun walked into the office of a small newspaper in Maryland on Thursday and killed at least five people in an attack that led police to beef up security at media outlets in other cities as a precaution, authorities said.

Police officers in the Maryland capital city of Annapolis responded within minutes to a 911 call about a shooting in progress at the offices of the Capital Gazette newspaper group and apprehended the suspect hiding under a desk, authorities said.

Police have said nothing about a possible motive for the attack, in which at least three other people were wounded, but authorities are treating it as a local incident, with no links to terrorism, a law enforcement source told Reuters.
