What we know about the Annapolis newspaper shooting

In the USA a candlelight vigil has been held in Maryland in memory of five newspaper employees, shot dead by a gunman on Thursday.

The article said Ramos had contacted the woman on Facebook and thanked her "for being the only person ever to say, 'Hello, ' or be nice to him in school". They recovered a gun and said he also carried smoke grenades.

The victims were Wendi Winters, 65, editor and community reporter; Rebecca Smith, 34, sales assistant; Robert Hiaasen, 59, assistant editor and columnist; Gerald Fischman, 61, editorial writer; and John McNamara, 56, reporter and editor. Ramos was investigated five years ago for a barrage of menacing tweets against the paper. He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday morning.

Before he went on a shooting rampage and killed five in a newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland, Capital Gazette shooter Jarrod Ramos relentless stalked and harassed a former classmate of his in the area.

As a presidential candidate and since becoming president, Trump and his aides routinely have dismissed various reports by mainstream media outlets ― especially stories critical of him, as "fake news". He says Ramos barricaded the exit door so employees couldn't escape, and that one of the five people who were killed was shot while trying to escape out that exit.

The Capital Gazette reported that the paper had received threats from Ramos leading up to the attack.

But that's exactly what staffers at the Capital Gazette newspaper company did.

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.

The suspect damaged his fingers in possible efforts to disguise his identification before the "targeted attack" with a shotgun, police said.

Phil Davis, the paper's court and crime reporter, tweeted afterwards: "A single shooter shot multiple people at my office, some of whom are dead".

Two law enforcement sources said his fingerprints appeared to have been altered, which made it hard to identify him, but one law enforcement source said he was identified through facial recognition software. Buckley told the Sun about being rebuffed by Trump. Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their jobs. "I am devastated", reporter Danielle Ohl tweeted.

"These guys, they don't make a lot of money". According to court documents, the judge said, "There is nothing" to prove "anything that was published" was in fact false.

"He said something along the lines of he was anxious about me, that I hadn't responded to him in three or four days, what was wrong with me, why was I doing this to him?"

Court documents show the man suspected of killing five people at a Maryland newspaper Thursday had filed a defamation suit against the paper for an article detailing his guilty plea in a harassment case.
