Trump orders USA flags lowered to honour slain journalists

A child looks at the five crosses representing the journalist killed, at a makeshift memorial outside the office building housing The Capital Gazette in Annapolis. The suit was dismissed by a judge after Ramos was unable to prove the paper had published anything false or defamatory about him, but Ramos then went on to harass the paper and its staff on social media for years.

Ramos had a long-running dispute with the Capital over its reporting of his conviction for harassing a woman who was his former classmate.

Even so, Brandon Rottinghaus, a University of Houston professor who studies presidential proclamations, tells USA Today that the Maryland shooting transcends the number killed because "the crucial role of the free press in America puts their status on par with any other government official". Buckley said. "This was an attack on the press".

When the Laurel, Maryland, resident, was taken into custody, he refused to identify himself to police or cooperate.

Hiaasen and his slain colleagues - Gerald Fischman, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith and Wendi Winters - were remembered in stories, poems, prayers and songs at a "celebration of life" ceremony Monday evening.

"I loved him dearly". All are welcome. On Saturday, the 5:30 p.m. Eucharist at St. Anne's Episcopal Church in downtown will be offered for the victims. Acting Police Chief William Krampf of Anne Arundel County says it was a targeted attack in which the gunman "looked for his victims".

Marquardt said he contacted the police "to pursue one particular comment in which he wished I would be dead, and the police looked into it".

Altomare said evidence found at Ramos' home, in Laurel, Maryland, showed that he planned the attack and that the pump-action 12 gauge shotgun used was legally purchased about a year ago.

The victims were four journalists and a sales assistant.

The existence of the letters was first reported on the websites for the Gazette and Baltimore Sun, which owns the Annapolis outlet.

Ramos acted alone and drove a rental vehicle to the newspaper office, police said.

Lori's harassment case was reported by the Capital Gazette, which fueled Ramos' misplaced anger toward the paper - which ultimately led to the shooting. Ramos is accused of opening fire on Thursday over a longstanding grudge against the paper.

'But also you have, like anything else, people that are bad'.

The police chief told reporters that the decision not to pursue charges against Ramos in 2013 was not a misstep by the department.
