No one died, so sadly this will barely make a dent on U.S. news outlets.

The shooter's either extremely incompetent or extremely competent, I'm not sure which.

I'm trying to work out what's the most shocking part of the story, that no one was killed or that Trenton New Jersey has an arts fair.

Just got a little information card at work put out by the department of homeland security on how to respond to an active shooter situation..... Sigh. Sometimes I wonder why I don't just move back to Canada.

That should be a standard part of any ERP regardless of where the business is located. I asked our HSE people here (Calgary) what our protocol was for a similar situation and they did not have one. We focus on evacuating people from buildings but what if the threat is increased by doing that? Or my leaving your area? In our particular case HSE had to go back and give that angle more consideration.

I think any company with a well thought plan would have something in place for this type of situation.

Well, we knew it was only a matter of time before the next one. Reports just coming in now about a shooting at a newspaper in Maryland today with multiple fatalities.

Multiple casualties have been reported after a shooter opened fire in Annapolis, Maryland.

Police responded to the incident on Thursday afternoon at about 3pm local time. Dozens of law enforcement vehicles were seen rushing to the newsroom in eastern Maryland.

Anne Arundel Sheriff Ron Bateman told Fox News that there were multiple causalities, but that officers were still investigating the scene.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) Baltimore said they are responding to the incident.

someone coming after the "Fake News"

It's a matter of time before some idiot gets whipped into a frenzy and attacks journalists, if this incident isn't already that.

Yea, not to jump to conclusions or anything...but I wouldn't be surprised if this was indeed politically motivated.

They've identified the suspect but police say are not willing to release the name yet. There are other reports out there that the shooter is a white male.

Maybe coincidental, maybe not, but 2 days ago from Milo Yiannopoulos:

In separate statements given to the Observer and the Daily Beast, Yiannopoulos said on Tuesday: “I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.”

At this point Milo is absolutely desperate for attention so this is not surprising at all. It's pure speculation now, but if the shooter is found to be influenced by him I hope he can be charged.
