The fifth victim, Rebecca Smith, was an ad sales assistant for the paper. "Thirty minutes is a long time, and I just-the answer is not good, right?" she continued, according to The Daily Beast. The Balmore Sun Media Group bought the Capital Gazette in 2014. Authorities have filed murder charges against a man who had a feud with newspaper.

Cyphers said he heard yelling and then more gunshots.

Capital Gazette survivor Anthony Messenger described the situation during the shooting leading up to his viral tweet.

Those killed included Rob Hiaasen, 59, the paper's assistant managing editor and brother of novelist Carl Hiaasen.

John McNamara, 56, was a staff writer.

In one tweet, Ramos wrote he wanted to see the paper, the Capitol Gazette in Annapolis, stop publishing but said it "would be nicer" to see two particular journalists "cease breathing".

Employees stood with their arms around each other, amid family members, friends and supporters.

"The Capital Gazette is my hometown paper, and I have the greatest respect for the fine journalists, and all the men and women, who work there", Hogan said in a statement. "Because exposing evil, shining light on wrongs and fighting injustice is what we do".

"The @capgaznews Opinion page is powerful", photojournalist Christopher Assaf tweeted.

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

The alleged gunman, Jarrod W. Ramos, was charged with five counts of first degree-murder.

Tom Marquardt, the newspaper's former editor and publisher, told the Capital Gazette on Thursday that during his tenure, the escalating harassment of journalists on Ramos' social media accounts had raised red flags. His case was dismissed, and an appeals court affirmed the decision, according to local media reports.

Ramos filed another lawsuit in 2014 against three defendants.

The lawsuit was the beginning of an ongoing campaign of hatred directed toward the Capital Gazette, Marquardt said.

"He said something along the lines of he was anxious about me, that I hadn't responded to him in three or four days, what was wrong with me, why was I doing this to him?"

"Today, we are speechless".

"I'm a police reporter". He said police believe they were sent before the attack, and detectives are now investigating.

Officers responded in about 60 seconds and arrested him without firing a shot as he too "attempted to hide himself under a desk", according to his charging documents. "We had the instances in 2013, and then it went dark, and my understanding is that shortly before the incident, there were some posts", Altomare said.
