Shootings Newspaper

Police tape surrounds the front entrance of the office building housing the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis. A man armed with smoke grenades and a shotgun attacked journalists in the building on June 28, killing five people.

After there’s an incident, Scott Zimmerman usually sees a spike in calls.

Zimmerman is a Frederick resident and the founder and CEO of K17 Security in Rockville, which provides services including security awareness training, risk and vulnerability assessments, and active shooter response training.
