Newspaper shooting suspect 'barricaded exit'

  • 5 dead, multiple injuries in newspaper shooting in Annapolis, Maryland

"The barricading of a back door, and the use of a tactical approach in the hunting down and shooting of the innocent victims".

The prime suspect of a newsroom shooting which killed five journalists used a legally purchased pump action shotgun.

She said many Annapolis residents have a "one degree of separation" connection with at least one of the five paper employees who were fatally shot Thursday. It noted that Hiaasen was the brother of Carl Hiaasen, Miami Herald columnist and best-selling author.

President Donald Trump said the attack filled Americans' hearts with grief.

A member of the NYPD stands guard in front of ABC headquarters as they increase security in Manhattan at major media companies following a shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland in New York City. The opinion page was left blank as the staff said they were "speechless".

Ramos had reportedly been harassing and threatening the staff of the Gazette for years.

"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 bad shooting", the page says. "He wrote a lot of warm pieces", Altomare said, emphasizing that "all of them were consummate professionals, and although on occasion we might disagree, they always tried to get both sides of the story out". "He loved journalism, he loved helping those young writers at the Gazette".

"She was larger than life", Geimer said Friday after a vigil at her mother's Annapolis church. Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has ordered the state flag to be lowered to half-staff until Monday in their memory.


Hours after a gunman blasted his way inside The Capital Gazette on Thursday, the surviving staff tweeted out their defiance: "Tomorrow, this Capital page will return to its steady goal of offering readers informed opinion about the world around them".

Neither Hartley nor Marquardt is still employed by the paper and neither was at its offices on Thursday. The alleged shooter was said to be perturbed by an article the paper published in 2011 that detailed he stalked and harassed a woman for more than a year. A spokesperson for the public defender's office was not immediately available for comment.

In 2015 Maryland's second-highest court upheld the ruling, rejecting Mr Ramos's suit. Police said the mass shooting was a targeted attack.

The woman told a WBAL TV reporter that she had become so frightened of Ramos that she had to move three times and now sleeps with a gun, adding that he is a "f***ing nut job".

In an interview with The Capital Gazette's online site, Davis said it "was like a war zone" inside the newspaper's offices - a situation that would be "hard to describe for a while". It is owned by the Baltimore Sun Media Group. "I don't know why, but flight won".

Trump is due to campaign next week in Montana on behalf of Republicans including congressman Greg Gianforte, who pleaded guilty to assaulting a Guardian reporter a year ago after lying about it to police. "You're going to need a restraining order now", he wrote, according to CBS news, telling her "you can't make me stop". Some 300 local, state and federal officers converged on the scene and within two minutes police had begun to corner Ramos, a rapid response that "without question" saved lives, Altomare said. He will face either a preliminary court hearing or grand jury indictment within the next 30 days.

Capital Gazette runs several newspapers out of its Annapolis office.

The Capital Gazette is one of the oldest papers in America.
