ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WTIC and AP) - Multiple people have been shot at The Capital newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.  

The Baltimore Sun, which owns the Annapolis newspaper, says a reporter told them of the shooting Thursday afternoon.  

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says it is responding to reports of the shooting.  

Marc Limansky is a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Police Department. He says officers are searching the building in Annapolis where the shooting was reported.  He says the situation is ``active and ongoing.''  

On TV reports, people could be seen leaving the building with their hands up, as police officers urged them to depart through a parking lot and officers converged on the building.
