Paper attacked in shooting covers its own tragedy

Official Suspect was found hiding under desk

President Trump, speaking at an event commemorating the passage of his tax cuts, called the shooting a "horrific, horrific event".

"They call themselves an important watchdog, but who watches the watchers?" the message said.

A gunman shot his way into the newsroom of the Capital Gazette on Thursday, leaving five people dead.

The court agreed that the contents of the article were accurate and based on public records, the document showed, and in 2015, Maryland's second-highest court upheld the ruling rejecting Ramos's suit.

Trump said he is thinking of the survivors and the families of the "horrific, horrible" murders.

On the suspect's Twitter feed, countless tweets over the years documented his legal troubles and complaints about the media in minute detail, frequently attacking journalists by name.

In a post on Facebook, Carl Hiaasen wrote that he was "devastated and heartsick to confirm the loss of my wonderful brother Rob today", a man he said was "one of the most gentle and amusing people I've ever known".

Court records show that in July 2012, Ramos filed a complaint against Hartley and the newspaper, alleging the story defamed him. In a different tweet, Ramos said he'd enjoy seeing the paper stop publishing, but "it would be nicer" to see two journalists "cease breathing".

The Maryland man who is suspected of carrying out the attack is in custody and has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder. Two others suffered superficial wounds during the shooting, possibly from broken glass.

The alleged shooter in the attack on the Capital Gazette newspaper has been tentatively identified as Jarrod Warren Ramos of Laurel, Maryland, according to multiple law enforcement sources.

John McNamara was a longtime employee of the newspaper who had worked as a sports writer and copy editor and moved more recently to a weekly publication, the Bowie Blade-News, colleague David Broughton said.

Five people were killed and two injured in what police said was a "targeted" shooting at the offices of The Capital Gazette newspaper on Thursday.

While the motive for Capital Gazette attack isn't confirmed we did get the info that Ramos had a long-running feud with them.

The city of Annapolis announced a vigil for the victims Friday night at a public square near the State House.

On Saturday, the 5:30 p.m. Eucharist at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in downtown will be offered for the victims. "We're putting out a paper tomorrow".

It went on to name the victims, and then said "tomorrow this page will turn to its steady goal of offering our readers informed opinion about the world around them, that they might be better citizens".

"We pledge our support in their recovery and support [the Capital Gazette staff] in the means it takes to mend the hurt and loss", read a statement from Associated Press Media Editors. The issue's front page features the five journalists who were killed Thursday. Profiles of the victims appeared on A4 and A5.

Phil Davis, the Capital Gazette's crime and court reporter, began tweeting about the incident after he was safely away from the building. That set off months of emails in which he alternatively asked for help and was nasty to her, she said.

You can help the Capital Gazette staff right now with this this official GoFundMe, which had raised more than $100,000 out of a $125,000 goal as of Friday morning.
