On Thursday, a gunman walked into the Annapolis paper, opened fire and killed five people.

Last week's cold-blooded murder of journalists, said Phoenix Geimer, the son of victim Wendi Winters, is also "as anti-American and anti-good as it is possible to be", a cogent description of the monster who made the decision. The defamation case was dismissed. "Detectives continue to investigate". Acting Police Chief William Krampf of Anne Arundel County says it was a targeted attack in which the gunman "looked for his victims". And he took to Twitter to call out the people he insisted had wronged him. He tweeted at the newspaper's official account, @capgaznews, 149 times. Wes Adams said Friday that there were two entrances to the office.

Four journalists and a sales assistant were killed in the attack. "But today, we are speechless". Hours after a gunman blasted his way inside The Capital Gazette on Thursday, the surviving staff tweeted out their defiance: "Tomorrow, this Capital page will return to its steady goal of offering readers informed opinion about the world around them". Ramos appeared in an Annapolis courtroom via video feed. He stared at the camera. Ramos was represented by public defender William Davis.

Trump has been attacking the press for years but really ratcheted up his efforts when he became a presidential candidate. He also said that they "stepped up security" at the newspaper years ago, and posted Ramos's photo around the office.

"They went in with such force", Frashure said of the response.

President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Oval Office of the White House, Monday, July 2, 2018, in Washington.

Trump, in a concise statement, said the press should be free of the fear of being violently attacked while doing their jobs.

"The FAKE NEWS not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"

The proclamation orders flags at the White House and other federal buildings and ships to be lowered until sunset Tuesday.

"Obviously, I'm disappointed", Mr Buckley, who moved to the U.S. in 1992, told the Baltimore Sun. Hartley, now an editor at the Virginian-Pilot in Norfolk, Va., declined to be interviewed.

The Sun was told about the letter by Thomas Marquardt, the Capital's former publisher. "Welcome to your unexpected legacy: YOU should have died", Ramos tells Moylan, the Times reported, before signing off: "Friends forever".

"We probably had the reactions that Ramos wanted us to have".

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

"I want to just remember what a wonderful person Rob was and what a great, wonderful, selfless life he led", said Kevin Cowherd, one of several speakers who addressed the crowd of roughly 500 people assembled beneath a large white tent. "I don't feel the department was negligent in any way".

Marquardt said he once slept with a baseball bat by his bed because he was so anxious. "What provoked it now is beyond me".

"It's just as important as any other tragedy", Mr Buckley said.
