Morning after mass shooting, Capital Gazette publishes Friday edition

Official Suspect was found hiding under desk

Gunn, the former Capital Gazette editor, said Rob Hiaasen was a "gifted editor who had an aura of an artist around him who made people want to make journalism a lovely craft".

According to the Sun, Winters came to journalism later in life after a career in fashion and public relations in NY, starting as a freelancer for the Capital Gazette 20 years ago.

Special publications editor Wendi Winters was "the heart of the newspaper", Gunn said.

Robert Hiaasen, 59, was the assistant editor for news and a columnist at the paper.

And then it named all five of them, starting with Fischman, the award-winning Opinion page editor. That's where he first met John McNamara. "Not only because of his journalism abilities, but because I knew what a good person he was", Jackson said. She worked as a sales assistant for the paper. Hiaasen was one of the victims when an active shooter targeted the newsroom, Thursday, June 28, 2018 in Annapolis, Md. "They serve each day to shine light on the world around us so that we might see with more clarity and greater understanding".

Here's how people are honoring the Capital Gazette victims.

Yet in spite of the terror, pain and loss, at 12:12 a.m. on Friday The Capital tweeted its cover for the day's edition.

The newspaper, which was reeling from the attack, defiantly tweeted on Thursday: "Yes, we're putting out a damn paper tomorrow".

The headline: "5 shot dead at The Capital".

Neymar was the architect, crossing for Firmino, who is becoming something of a "supersub" for Brazil , to tap the ball home. Until that moment, it had looked like his would be a story of good Neymar-of what he brings to the game that is positive.


Court records show that a year later, in July 2012, Ramos filed a complaint against Hartley and the newspaper, alleging he was defamed by the story.

Defamation suit against Capital Gazette was finally concluded in 2015 after the state's second-highest court confirmed the previous ruling and dismissed the case.

Ramos filed another lawsuit in 2014 against three defendants. It did so just eight hours after the shooting had turned the Capital Gazette newsroom into a chaotic crime scene.

The gunman was silent as he stalked the newsroom, stopping once to reload as journalists huddled in fear under their desks, Mr Davis said in a telephone interview.

"Today, we are speechless".

"I'm going to need more than a couple days of news coverage and some thoughts and prayers", San Felice told Anderson Cooper on "AC360" Thursday night.

The suspect has been identified as Jarrod Ramos, 38, who had a long-running feud with the paper, sources told The Baltimore Sun.

The detective, Michael Praley, said in the report that he "did not believe that Mr. Ramos was a threat to employees" at the paper, noting that Ramos hadn't tried to enter the building and hadn't sent "direct, threatening correspondence". "This has always been true around the world and the U.S.is sadly no exception", said Joel Simon, executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists. "They reviewed all the tweets so far and again came away with the feeling that there really wasn't enough substance there to pursue a case in court".

Police recovered the suspect's vehicle and searched his apartment where they discovered evidence showing of his planning, but no other details were given about what was found. Altomare said the suspect used a pump-action shotgun that was legally purchased about a year ago to carry out the targeted attack.
