As reports of at least five fatalities broke Thursday following the Capital Gazette shooting in Annapolis, MD, CNN’s Brian Stelter called it potentially “the deadliest day in American journalism in several years.”

The massacre unfolded during the afternoon, when a gunman entered the building, shooting through an office door an opening fire on workers, according to the Capital Gazette‘s Phil Davis.

“It is clear that something happened in the newsroom, something horrible,” Stelter said, adding that ” it’s a moment that I think so many journalists have feared for a long time regardless of whether this newsroom was targeted or not, this is a fear on many journalists’ minds.”
