Annapolis Capital Gazette Shooting: How to Help Victims

At least five people were killed Thursday when a gunman opened fire in the Capital Gazette newspaper building in Annapolis, Maryland. Several others were “gravely injured,” police said in a press conference.

In the wake of the shooting, a GoFundMe account was set up for the victims. The account was accepting donations for those affected by the shooting. The page is available here.

“Please give what you can to help the Capital Gazette newsroom and their journalists,” the fundraiser said. “Our hearts break for our colleagues in Annapolis and we want to do whatever we possibly can to help them pay for medical bills, newsroom repairs, and anything else that might arise from this terrible shooting.”

The Anne Arundel Medical Center told Newsweek it did not have a shortage of blood due to the shooting, but that blood donations are always needed in the summer months.

Authorities had not yet released the names of the victims in Thursday’s shooting. One suspect was in custody.
