'We Won't Forget Being Called An Enemy Of The People'

5 killed in Maryland newspaper shooting Morning after mass shooting, Capital Gazette publishes Friday edition

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

US President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly referred to the media as the "enemy of the people", on Friday described the shooting as "horrific".

Jarrod Warren Ramos was ordered held without bond pending a trial on Friday, June 29, 2018.

"Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their jobs", he said. The unidentified woman told Miller she had warned a former police official years ago that Ramos "will be your next mass shooter".

A man brandishing a shotgun and carrying smoke grenades walked into the office of a small newspaper in Maryland and killed at least five people in a targeted assault, one of the deadliest attacks recorded on a U.S. media outlet, the authorities said.

The suspect has been identified as Jarrod Ramos, 38, who had a long-running feud with the paper, sources told The Baltimore Sun. On Hartley's forehead was an image inserted from the Japanese manga and anime series "Berserk", which recounts the ritual murder of people marked with it. Ramos also placed the symbol on Marquardt's head.

Ramos has now been charged with five counts of murder after the shooting.

The editorial added later: "Our community has rallied around us to show they understand who we are, and that we are not the enemy of the people".

"He was distant from the family. He'd have killed her", McCarthy said.

In an interview Friday, Marquardt recalled feeling threatened by Ramos' posts, but said that after police investigated, there wasn't much else he could do.


The killing of 17 people at a Parkland, Florida high school in February helped reinvigorate the national debate on gun control in a country where firearms are responsible for more than 30,000 gun-related deaths annually. "He left that sort of impression on me", he said. Then-staff writer Eric Hartley wrote about the case in a column in The Capital - which left Ramos in a seething rage that lasted all the way up to the massacre this week. That touched off a yearslong tirade against the newspaper.

Police, however, had known that the suspect, Jarrod Ramos, had posted threatening comments on his web page about the newspaper, which he had unsuccessfully sued for defamation in 2012. The case was dismissed, and an appeals court upheld the dismissal.

Ramos filed a lawsuit, which was later thrown out, against McCarthy in 2014. "And they got a newspaper out today". At least two others were injured in the attack.

"A lawyer would nearly certainly have told him not to proceed with this case", the court wrote in its opinion following the appeal.

The pair started emailing and the woman suggested that Ramos, who seemed troubled, attend counselling.

"The people who made our newspaper are people we felt we knew, even if we had never met them before", Benjamin Wilson said.

On Thursday, as the newspaper's office became a crime scene, employees gathered under a nearby parking garage to report and edit stories and photos for Friday's papers. So we have a lot of questions to be answered.

Investigators are reviewing Ramos' social media postings and searched his apartment, where Altomare said they found evidence of the planning of the attack. In 2011, Ramos pled guilty in a harassment case involving the online stalking of a woman he went to high school with.

Reporter Selene San Felice told CNN she was at her desk but ran after hearing shots, only to find a back door locked.
