Capital Gazette gunman was 'continually shooting people'

Tuesday, 03 Jul, 2018

"Before going any further, I'd like to address the horrific shooting that took place yesterday at Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland", Mr. Trump said Friday, in his first live remarks about the incident.

A woman stalked by the man who allegedly shot dead five people at a Maryland newspaper last week told NBC's "Today Show" on Monday she always feared he would explode.

The newspaper's editors left the editorial page blank with a note saying that they were speechless. The brother of best-selling author and journalist Carl Hiaasen, he was a feature writer at The Baltimore Sun for 15 years before moving to the Gazette in 2010 as an assistant editor.

He had been investigated five years ago for a barrage of tweets against the paper after it ran an article about him pleading guilty to harassing a woman. It is styled a "Motion for Reconsideration" by Maryland's top court, which in 2016 refused to hear a defamation case Ramos, now 38, had filed against the newspaper.

A crowd gathered in downtown Annapolis on Friday to honor five people who were killed in Thursday's attack on the Capital Gazette offices.

Ramos, who is in his 30s, did not have any identification with him when he was arrested, according to a law enforcement source. Hartley said Ramos had sent her numerous emails in which he called her vulgar names and told her to kill herself.

Ramos was "uncooperative" with his interrogators, police said, and in court papers, authorities described him as "recalcitrant". The newspaper said two other employees had non-life threatening injuries and were later released from a hospital. Police said surveillance video recorded the attack, which began with a shotgun blast that shattered the glass entrance to the open newsroom.

"I would be afraid that he could show up anywhere at any time and kill me", she said.

The Capital Gazette itself reported that crime reporter Phil Davis, in the building at the time, said he and others hid under desks.

But she says one difference now is that he can no longer silence her.

The article had identified Ramos as a U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics employee with no criminal record and a degree in computer engineering, according to The Baltimore Sun.

USA president Donald Trump, who has had a combative relationship with the media since his 2016 election, was asked by reporters traveling with him on Air Force One whether he was reconsidering calling journalists "enemies of the people".

"Journalists covering their own communities are vulnerable to violent attack".

Acting Police Chief William Krampf of Anne Arundel County on Thursday said the gunman had "looked for his victims". "They don't make a lot of money".

The Daily Beast reports that Ramos had sued the Capital Gazette for defamation after the newspaper reported on his 2011 harassment conviction.
