GoFundMe Page set up for Capital Gazette

(AP) A GoFundMe account set up for a Maryland newspaper where a gunman killed five people and injured two others has raised more than $20,000 within just three hours.

One man was in police custody after the shooting Thursday afternoon at The Capital Gazette.

The account was set up by a fellow journalist, Bloomberg Government reporter Madi Alexander. By 8 p.m., the total amount in donations had reached more than half the $30,000 goal.

The GoFundMe page posting urged people to give what they can to help the newspaper's journalists pay for medical bills, funeral costs, newsroom repairs and other expenses.
