Five killed in gun attack on USA newspaper

In a show of defiance, the Capital Gazette staff still put out the newspaper on Friday, despite the deaths of five of their colleagues.

The newspaper says a memorial service for special publications editor Wendi Winters will take place at noon July 7 at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis.

Rob Hiaasen, 59, a former Baltimore Sun feature writer who joined The Capital as assistant editor in 2010 and wrote a Sunday column.

Ramos, 38, of Laurel, Maryland has been charged with five counts of murder in Thursday's shooting - one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in US history.

"This page is intentionally left blank today to commemorate victims of Thursday's shootings at our office".

Jimmy Fallon fires back at Donald Trump after Twitter storm
In honor of the President's tweet I'll be making a donation to RAICES in his name. "That's all I'm here to do, is make you happy". Whether you have sympathy for him or not, no-one can deny that it was a hard period for Jimmy after the " Trump hair" fiasco.

Altomare said police in May 2013 investigated "online threatening comments" against the newspaper, which serves the local community in the coastal region near Baltimore and Washington, but that the paper did not want to pursue charges for fear of exacerbating the situation.

As soon as McCarthy heard the news about the shooting at the Capital Gazette, he "knew immediately that it was Jarrod Ramos", he said.

A year after the story ran, Ramos filed an initial complaint against Capital Gazette Communications, Hartley and also Tom Marquardt, a former editor and publisher of the newspaper.

Ramos grew up in Severn, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Annapolis, and attended Arundel High School, graduating in 1997.

Word that police used facial recognition emerged after some news outlets reported that Ramos might have damaged or altered his fingerprints - reports that police said were inaccurate. Judge Thomas Pryal said Friday that he found a likelihood that Ramos is a danger.

George is from Palmdale, California, northwest of Los Angeles, and Leonard is from Riverside, 88 kilometres (55 miles) east. LeBron James is approaching a deadline to decide whether to opt into his contract for next season or become a free agent.

Ramos was employed by an IT contractor for the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics - the agency that does the monthly jobs report and other economic data - from 2007 through 2014, a department spokesman said. "I even told my wife, 'We have to be concerned". His father was an assistant football coach at the U.S. Naval Academy. But by all accounts, Ramos had a specific, longstanding grievance against the paper.

"The Capital Gazette is my hometown paper, and I have the greatest respect for the fine journalists, and all the men and women, who work there", Hogan said in a statement. "The Capital is one of the oldest papers in our country and they have been part of the fabric of our city for centuries". She said Saturday that the tragedy "feels so personal".

Then Ramos "went silent" for more than two years, Marquardt said.

"People could easily get lost in the crowd, and I kind of think that's what happened here", she said. With its weekly sailboat races and picturesque downtown, residents were settling into the rhythms of summer when the shooting shattered the town's usual tranquility.

Ramos is charged with five counts of first-degree murder and has been held without bail. She said Ramos became "fixated" on her to the point where she became frightened enough to move out of state.
