Maryland shooting: Suspect barricaded doors and hunted victims

Maryland shooting: Suspect barricaded doors and hunted victims

A reporter from the Capital Gazette read their names aloud to those who gathered and marched slowly through the centre of Annapolis.

Gov. Larry Hogan ordered Maryland flags across the state to fly at half-staff until sunset Monday to honor the lives taken. "There are no words", it says. With its weekly sailboat races and picturesque downtown, residents were settling into the rhythms of summer when the shooting shattered the town's usual tranquility. The shootings are believed to be the deadliest attack on journalists in the United States.

David Marsters, who worked at the newspaper from 2008 to 2016 and knew four of the slain employees, said the outpouring of grief over their deaths is a testament to the special bond the newspaper has with its readers. "It has shifted our community, and maybe it's made us more attuned to the fact that we are all in this together". It is owned by the Baltimore Sun Media Group.

"We were concerned about him at the time, it definitely came up more than once", Shirley said. "The Capital is not a giant newspaper".

Annapolis mayor Gavin Buckley said he was proud of the journalists who had "soldiered on" in the face of the tragedy.

Hiaasen, 59, an assistant editor and Sunday columnist at the Capital Gazette since 2010, worked at WPTF-AM, a news/talk radio station in Raleigh in the mid-1980s.

Atop the front page were pictures of those killed: Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith and Wendi Winters. "I guess they didn't treat me badly enough", Trump said, calling the shooting rampage a "disgrace". A video shared by NBC News showed him silently walking past reporters as they shouted questions at him about the shooting.

Ramos did not speak Friday at his bail hearing, but a woman who saw Ramos Thursday after his arrest in the Office of the Court Commissioner said Ramos was speaking then, hurling racial slurs. The lawsuit was later thrown out by a judge as groundless. In past years, Ramos repeatedly targeted staffers with angry, profanity-laced tweets.

One of the considerations for choosing Annapolis was its close-knit nature.

"He was calling the African-Americans racial slurs", the woman said. "This guy could really hurt us'". "She was a force to be reckoned with", he said.

"Sometimes he would say, 'I'll get it to you later".

Altomare said investigators were frustrated as they tried to determine exactly why the gunman attacked.

In a tweet, Belichick says: "For my entire life, The Capital has been my hometown newspaper".

The man suspected of killing five people in a Maryland newsroom posted a barrage of hostile tweets over more than two years about the newspaper but law enforcement remained unaware of those posts until after the attack, the local police chief said on Friday. The city of Annapolis announced a vigil for the victims Friday night at a public square near the Capitol. The police chief said the newspaper didn't press charges at the time because "there was a fear that doing so would exacerbate an already flammable situation".

"I've been thinking the same thing about us - how long is it going to be?" "What do you tell any child", he said.

He added there was evidence to show he meant to "kill as many people as he could". In 2005, the building that housed his business was destroyed by a fire, and he had to relocate.

"Our hearts break for our colleagues in Annapolis and we want to do whatever we possibly can to help them pay for medical bills, funeral costs, newsroom repairs, and any other unforeseen expenses that might arise as a result of this awful shooting", the GoFundMe description reads.
