Suspect in Maryland newspaper shooting charged with 5 counts of murder

30 Juin, 2018, 19:35 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Ramos is being charged with five counts of first degree murder in connection with the shooting.

Despite the horror that unfolded in their newsroom yesterday, journalists at the Capital newspaper still put out an issue this morning, with a front page covering the attack and honoring the victims.

"I was curled up, trying not to breathe, trying not to make a sound, and he shot people all around me", photographer Paul Gillespie, who dove beneath a desk, told The Baltimore Sun, owner of the Annapolis paper.

"When I sat for my endorsement interviews in 2010, he made it clear to me it was to be earned and by no means was guaranteed", former two-term Anne Arundel County Councilman Jamie Benoit told the newspaper. The article was published five days after Ramos pleaded guilty to criminal harassment, according to the Associated Press.

Ramos did not speak Friday at his bail hearing, but a woman who saw Ramos Thursday after his arrest in the Office of the Court Commissioner said Ramos was speaking then, hurling racial slurs. Feeling that he might be experiencing some problems, the woman had encouraged him to seek counseling. "She was a force to be reckoned with", he said. Sources close to the story confirm that Ramos threatened the publication's staff in social media.

Nearly exactly one year before the newsroom shooting, Trump tweeted a clip from 2007 of himself beating up WWE owner Vince McMahon, except McMahon's head had been covered with the CNN logo. At least one tweet was directed at columnist and editor Rob Hiaasen, one of the victims killed on Thursday. He said there was "no exchange of fire".

Tom Marquardt, a retired editorpublisher of the paper, said he called police about Ramos in 2013. Ramos, 38, brought a defamation suit in 2012 against the paper, but it was thrown out by a judge. During the court case, the judge asked him to point out one statement in the article that was false and defamatory, but he couldn't name one. The defamation case was dismissed. Few details were released at the court hearing on Ramos, other than that he is single, has no children and has lived for the past 17 years in an apartment in Laurel, Maryland. A spokesperson for the public defender's office was not immediately available for comment. In 2013, Ramos contacted the woman he had been found guilty of stalking.

In 2014 Ramos was sacked from his government job. He is accused of entering the Capital Gazette office on Thursday afternoon and opening fire through a glass door, hunting for victims and spraying the newsroom with gunfire as reporters hid under their desks and begged for help on social media, police and witnesses said.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Quietly clutching candles or hoisting #AnnapolisStrong signs, more than 1,000 people streamed through Maryland's capital, remembering five people slain in a newspaper office not just as gatekeepers of the news but as a crucial piece of their tight-knit community. It only took police 60 seconds to respond to the incident, and within two minutes, Altomare said, they were cornering the suspect. Police denied news reports that Ramos had mutilated his fingertips to thwart his identification. And there's a direct relationship between a town's size and its paper: The smaller the city, the more important its paper is to the community. The suspect had previously only been publicly described as a white male in his late 30s who is a Maryland resident.

Almost seven years ago, Ramos pleaded guilty to a criminal harassment charge, court documents filed in the District Court of Maryland in Anne Arundel County show. With an extensive family in the area, including 19 nieces and nephews, McCarthy constantly anxious that Ramos might come after one of them.
