5 killed in Maryland newspaper shooting

UNDER ATTACK, SCRIBES TWEETED ORDEAL ► A shotgun blast shattered the glass entrance of the open newsroom of Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland.

The Capital Gazette said in a Sunday editorial that it would not forget being called "an enemy of the people". Mourners carried signs that read "We are heartbroken" and "Annapolis Strong".

Police recovered the suspect's auto and searched his apartment where they discovered evidence showing of his planning, but no other details were given about what was found. Altomare said the suspect used a pump-action shotgun that was legally purchased about a year ago to carry out the targeted attack.

Robert Hiaasen, 59, was the assistant editor for news and a columnist at the paper.

A woman who claimed the man now in custody after a deadly mass shooting at an Annapolis newspaper reportedly warned police about him years ago.

A judge ordered Ramos to remain detained during a court hearing Friday.

He was charged with five counts of first-degree murder in one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in USA history. She said she was afraid Ramos "could show up anywhere, at any time, and kill me".

Phil Davis, a Capital Gazette crime reporter, said he had been hiding under his desk along with other newspaper employees when the shooter stopped firing, the Capital Gazette reported on its website.

A memorial for Capital Gazette sports writer John McNamara is displayed at a seat in the press box before a baseball game between the Baltimore Orioles and the Los Angeles Angels, Friday, June 29, 2018, in Baltimore.

Altomare also said that employees Rachel Pacella and Janet Cooley had been treated at a hospital and released after being injured during Thursday's attack. "Thirty minutes is a long time, and I just-the answer is not good, right?" she continued, according to The Daily Beast.

Police say they are a questioning the suspect, a white man in his late 30s, following Thursday's attack on The Capital Gazette in Annapolis. "His intent was to cause harm", Bill Krampf, deputy police chief of Anne Arundel County, said at a news conference Thursday evening. In a later interview appearing on the paper's online site, Davis likened the newspaper office to a "war zone". "I am devastated", reporter Danielle Ohl tweeted.

He had threatened and harassed a former high school classmate, sending emails containing vulgarities and telling her to kill herself, the Daily Mail of London reported. 'Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job'. "They don't make a lot of money". A judge in Prince George's dismissed that case two years later when Ramos failed to show up for court.

"He was six five so it made sense, but also he had a really, really big heart", she said, before reading a poem in her dad's honour.
