NYPD Sends Officers to New York Media Outlets After Annapolis Shooting

The New York Police Department has dispatched officers to various media outlets in New York City in response to the shooting that took place earlier Thursday at the Capital-Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Md.

“The NYPD has deployed counterterrorism teams to media organizations in and around New York City. These deployments are not based on specific threat information, but rather out of an abundance of caution until we learn more about the suspect and motives behind the Maryland shooting,” said John Miller, Deputy Commissioner for Counterterrorism and Intelligence at the NYPD. “It has become a standard practice to shift resources strategically during active shooter or terrorist events.”

A reporter for WABC TV in New York, a station owned by Disney’s ABC, posted a picture on Twitter showing a police car parked outside the outlet. Michael George, a reporter for New York’s WNBC said on Twitter that four officers had been stationed outside The New York Times., and showed a picture of the officers.
