CBS Anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell Fight Tears as They Reflect on Annapolis Shooting

Playing Gayle King and Norah O’Donnell Tear Up While Talking About Annapolis Shooting

The massacre of five people at a Maryland newspaper Thursday has struck a chord with reporters covering the story.

CBS anchors Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell fought back tears as they spoke about the deadly shooting at the Capital Gazette, an Annapolis-based newspaper.

"It's tough," O'Donnell said. "Really, really tough!" 

"The whole story is heartbreaking. ... You get up you go to work, you think its going to be another day and by the time the day is over your life has irreparably changed," added King. 

Five people were killed and others injured when a gunman stormed the officers of the Capital Gazette Thursday afternoon.

The suspect, identified as 38-year-old Jarrod Ramos, reportedly had a long-running feud with the paper, law enforcement sources told The Baltimore Sun, which owns the Capital Gazette. 

The victims have been identified as four journalists — Wendi Winters, Robert Hiaasen, Gerald Fischman and John McNamara — and sales assistant Rebecca Smith.

Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder, court records show. It's not clear whether he has an attorney.
