I am trying to find a black and white film I watched years ago about an escaped criminal on the run in the city. Most of the film is shot in a single room which is a news desk of a newspaper. Does anyone know what this film is?

The Front Page (1931)
fits your description, except that the newsroom is the telephone pool room for various newspapers at the prison.
