Annapolis Mourns Employees Killed In The Capital Gazette Attack

Annapolis Mourns Employees Killed In The Capital Gazette Attack

Hundreds of people gathered on Friday evening to remember the five people gunned down at a community newspaper office in Annapolis, Maryland, one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in U.S. history.

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.

The alleged gunman, Jarrod W. Ramos, was charged with five counts of first degree-murder.

Ramos filed a failed lawsuit against the paper in 2012, alleging the newspaper, a columnist and an editor defamed him in an article about his conviction in a criminal harassment case in 2011.

The defendant is accused of entering the Capital Gazette office on Thursday afternoon and opening fire through a glass door.

The victims included Rob Hiaasen, 59, assistant managing editor; Wendi Winters a community news reporter; reporter John McNamara; Gerald Fischman, editorial page editor; and sales assistant Rebecca Smith.

According to the article, "out of the blue", Ramos sent a friend request on Facebook to a woman who had been a high school classmate, thanking her "for being the only person ever to say hello or be nice" to him, the article said. But on Thursday, before the newsroom shooting began, a new post appeared: "Fuck you, leave me alone @judgemoylanfrnd", a reference to Judge Charles Moylan, who upheld the dismissal of the defamation case in 2015. In 2013, Marquardt said he had even spoken to police about filing a restraining order against Ramos.

Phil Davis, the paper's crime reporter, hid under his desk while the shootings took place.

That is why the Lakers are a better fit for LeBron James and we will be going over those three reasons in the coming slides. Cavs fans, businesses and the clergy will no doubt be praying for their king to stay and reign over the city of Cleveland.

Penalty helps Australia hold Denmark 1-1
Denmark moved on to four points and need at least a draw against France in their final game to guarantee a last-16 spot. Going into the tournament, No. 36 Australia was the lowest-ranked team in Group C with the others all in the top 12.

Colombia boost World Cup last-16 hopes by eliminating Poland
The team was overwhelmed in midfield and looked clueless in attack in another error-ridden display that resulted in an early exit. Colombia will next face Senegal on Thursday in Samara with a chance to win the group, while Poland will play Japan in Volgograd.

"Prior to departing Wisconsin, I was briefed on the shooting at Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland", the President wrote. Carl Hiaasen said he was "devastated and heartsick" at losing his brother, "one of the most gentle and amusing people I've ever known".

Prosecutors said Ramos was ordered held without bond, because he planned the attack, barricaded doors so victims could not escape and shot someone who tried.

"I was praying the entire time I was under that desk", she said.

A statement of probable cause obtained Friday by The Associated Press says surveillance video captured Thursday's events at the Capital Gazette.

The online records do not list an attorney for Ramos, who is scheduled for a bail hearing 10:30 a.m. Friday in Annapolis.

All five of those slain worked at the Capital Gazette newspaper.

He said police didn't have knowledge that the gunman was targeting anyone in particular and can't confirm whether the suspect knew employees at the paper or just targeted the publication.

Two reporters from the Capital Gazette newspaper chain were interviewed on CNN on Thursday night and responded to condolences after a shooting in their newsroom earlier that day. Among the names listed below it is the Baltimore Sun Media Group's editor-in-chief and publisher, Trif Alatzas.
