Capital Gazette Leaves Its Editorial Section Blank Day After Shooting

Memorial services for two of the five victims killed in a shooting at a Maryland newspaper have been scheduled for next week.

Vigils for the victims and their families are scheduled to be held in Annapolis on Friday night.

"Not that it's awakened the community, but I think our community now joins so many others in feeling this intense harm that has been done to us", Thompson said after the service. The Capital Gazette and The Baltimore Sun are owned by Tronc, which also owns the Orlando Sentinel.

The Maryland state flag was lowered to half-staff, and outside the building where the shooting took place, people left flowers, handwritten notes and American flags.

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.

On Thursday afternoon, a gunman walked into the newsroom of the Capital Gazette where 11 employees were working and opened fire, killing five people and wounding two. Ramos sued the paper for defamation in 2012 after it published a story about him pleading guilty to harassing a woman he went to high school with.

Authorities told ABC News that Ramos refused to cooperate during an initial interview Thursday and still wouldn't talk Friday. "I even told my wife, 'We have to be concerned".

During the court battles, Ramos worked as an IT contractor for the Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is expressing sympathy for the families and friends of those killed at the office of The Capital, which he calls his "hometown newspaper".

Belichick's father, Steve, spent 33 years as a Navy assistant coach and scout, and worked as an instructor in the physical education department.

Belichick graduated in 1970 from Annapolis High, where he played football and lacrosse.

"There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload", Davis added.

The Capital Gazette is a daily newspaper and digital news site that is a part of Capital Gazette Communications.

With its weekly sailboat races and picturesque downtown, residents were settling into summer's languid rhythms when the shooting shattered the usual tranquility. She said Saturday that the tragedy "feels so personal". They found "some evidence that shows origins of a plan" and "continuation of thought", Altomare said, but they did not "find any real motivator".

More than 1,000 people have streamed through Maryland's capital to honor five people slain in a newspaper office, quietly clutching candles or hoisting #AnnapolisStrong signs. He was ordered held without bond Friday morning.

Ramos sent a letter to the woman's employer, saying she was a bipolar drunkard, which led to her firing, the attorney said. The others killed in Thursday's rampage were editorial page editor Gerald Fischman, reporter John McNamara and sales assistant Rebecca Smith.
