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.

"The words of appreciation for our work and its importance to Annapolis and Anne Arundel County is a balm to our wounds", the editorial continued. They were mailed to an attorney for The Capital newspaper, a retired judge of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals and a Baltimore judge. "Friends forever, Jarrod W. Ramos".

Trump had ordered flags lowered for recent mass-shootings at Florida and Texas high schools and Buckley said the newspaper massacre "was an attack on freedom of speech". I don't know why it was confusing or exactly who said what when ...

"He had a really, really big heart", she said, before reading a poem in her dad's honour.

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. He faces with five counts of first-degree murder.

The decision follows a request by Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley (D), which he said was initially denied.

"So why would the mayor of Annapolis say he was turned down with such a no-brainer request?"

Since no flag should fly higher than the US flag, all other flags, including state, municipal, corporate, or otherwise, should also be lowered during this same duration of time, Malloy said.

"I write about this stuff - not necessarily to this extent, but shootings and death - all the time", he said. Tronc is the parent company of The Baltimore Sun Media Group, which includes the Capital.

"Support local journalism", Gillespie said.

The alleged gunman in the Capital Gazette shooting Thursday mailed threatening letters before his rampage at the Annapolis newspaper, reports CBS Baltimore media partner The Baltimore Sun.

Tom Marquardt, the newspaper's former editor and publisher, told NPR Ramos's behavior disturbed him enough to contact police in 2013. That's the time the shooting happened last Thursday.

The statement says Ramos used a "long gun firearm" and shot out the business doors, then shot people he encountered inside, killing five. He has a well-documented history of harassing the paper's journalists. Ramos was represented by public defender William Davis.

Capital Gazette's owner Tronc did not respond to a request for comment.

In an interview Friday, Marquardt recalled feeling threatened by Ramos' posts, but said that after police investigated, there wasn't much else he could do. NBC agreed to obscure her features and use only her first name, Lori.

She described Ramos as very cold, very calculated and very intelligent.
