Belichick said in a statement his "heart goes out to the victims, their families and the entire Annapolis community" after Thursday's attack on the newspaper.
Per CNN.com, five people were killed and two others were injured after a shooter blocked the back entrance of the Capital Gazette offices and opened fire with a shotgun. Jarrod Warren Ramos, 38, has been arrested.
Originally born in Tennessee, Belichick moved to Annapolis when he was four after his father was hired to work as a football coach at Navy. Belichick graduated from Annapolis High School in 1970.
