Newspaper Suffers Deadly Attack, Publishes the Next Day

Pat Furgurson staff reporter of the Capital Gazette reports outside the scene of a shooting at the Capital Gazette building

"Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their jobs".

The unnamed bank worker spoke of her fears as Jarrod Ramos, 38, was charged yesterday with murdering five staff at the Capital Gazette office in Annapolis, Maryland.

Anne Arundel County State's Attorney Wes Adams said Ramos' actions, including barricading a back door so that people could not escape and his "tactical approach of hunting down and shooting the innocent victims", was evidence of a coordinated attack.

He said the reality of Thursday's attack hadn't truly set in yet.

Photographs that were widely shared on social media showed newspaper staffers working on laptops in a parking garage to produce Friday's edition while they waited to learn the fate of colleagues after the shooting.

Ramos, who wore a navy jumpsuit, did not speak or enter a plea.

Court records show a man charged with killing five people at a Maryland newspaper was sacked from a government IT contractor because of concerns about his "suitability". The request was denied. The suspect in those deaths has been charged with five counts of murder. There's several other persons that are gravely injured.

PC Altomare said the suspect had been "uncooperative".

The mood was somber Friday as Capital Gazette reporter Phil Davis read aloud the names of his five slain co-workers before those gathers began marching through downtown Annapolis.

A judge threw out Ramos' suit and an appeals court upheld that decision in 2015, saying he didn't "come close to alleging a case of defamation". An article by Hartley had contended that Ramos had harassed a woman on Facebook and he had pleaded guilty to criminal harassment. The account, which bore the tagline "making corpses of corrupt careers", had been dormant since 2016. "This page is intentionally left blank today to commemorate victims of Thursday's shooting at our office".

Police held a final press conference on the shooting on Friday and revealed the Capital Gazette met with lawyers and police in 2013 to discuss if they should press charges against Ramos, who had posted threats on social media aimed at the paper. Carl Hiaasen said he was "devastated and heartsick" at losing his brother, "one of the most gentle and amusing people I've ever known". "There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload", he wrote. Police said the mass shooting was a targeted attack.

Four journalists and a sales assistant were killed in the Thursday afternoon's bloodshed in Maryland. Pat Furgurson, a reporter, told the Guardian that the victims were "just trying to do their job for the public".

"Something like this might happen in Afghanistan or Iraq or something like that but you don't expect it in a sleepy office across the street from a local mall", said Furgurson.

Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley said the community is grieving. But the paper did not press charges, concerned that the threats would escalate. "We are in a Mayberry kind of town, we're in shock we're going to be grappling with".

A man with a long grudge against Maryland's capital-city newspaper was ordered remanded in jail Friday on five counts of first-degree murder after police said he blasted his way into the newsroom with a pump-action shotgun, killing five people in one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in US history. Some incredible people in the press ... brilliant, powerful, smart, and fair people in the press.

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.

Amid an increasingly hostile environment for journalists in the United States, focus fell on remarks made by Judge Maureen Lamasney when she dismissed Ramos's defamation lawsuit against the newspaper in 2013.
