Jarrod Warren Ramos was interrogated, charged and jailed pending a 10:30 a.m. hearing in Annapolis. Investigators said earlier that he was uncooperative. It prompted New York City police to immediately tighten security at news organizations in the nation's media capital.

USA man Jarrod Warren Ramos poses for a photo for Annapolis police on Friday. Police Chief Timothy Altomare said at a news conference Friday that the Capital Gazette didn't press charges over social media threats the shooting suspect had made against the newspaper in 2013.

Hundreds of people marched through downtown Annapolis today.

Police in Annapolis say Ramos also carried smoke bombs. "My family and I have enjoyed special relationships with many great people who have worked for the newspaper", Belichick said.

The five killed were Rob Hiaasen (59); Wendi Winters (65); Rebecca Smith (34); Gerald Fischman (61); and John McNamara.

"The fella was there to kill as many people as he could", Altomare explained.

Ramos reportedly sued both a Capital Gazette reporter and the Gazette itself for defamation, after the paper reported his "fixating" on and stalking of a woman who has since moved three times and now sleeps with a gun, according to WBAL investigative reporter Jayne Miller. Journalists recounted hiding under desks as they heard colleagues being shot and the gunman apparently reloading. In a later interview appearing on the paper's online site, Davis likened the newspaper office to a "war zone".

Trump is due to campaign next week in Montana on behalf of Republicans including congressman Greg Gianforte, who pleaded guilty to assaulting a Guardian reporter previous year after lying about it to police. "I write about this stuff - not necessarily to this extent, but shootings and death - all the time", Mr Davis said. Reporter Selene San Felice told CNN she was at her desk and ran after hearing shots, only to find a back door locked. "I was breathing really loud and was trying not to, but I couldn't be quiet".

Mr. Trump called the attack a "horrible, awful event". "They weren't vague to me at all".

Survivors said the shooting - though it seemed agonizingly long - lasted mere minutes.

Police are checking the building in Annapolis for explosives and whether more than one suspect was involved, Anne Arundel County police spokesman, Lieutenant Ryan Frashure, told reporters. About 170 people were then evacuated from the building, which houses other offices, many leaving with their hands up as police and other emergency vehicles arrived. "Violence is never tolerated in any form, no matter whom it is against".

"Our thoughts and prayers are with all that are affected", she said. Rather than thanks, he responded with vicious abuse, sending her messages such as: "Have another drink and go hang yourself, you cowardly little lush".

"Journalists like all Americans should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job".

Employees stood with their arms around each other, amid family members, friends and supporters. "The only question was, who would he get first?" he said.

Court documents showed that Ramos had filed a defamation claim against the paper in 2012.

The mayor of Annapolis, Gavin Buckley, addressed public views of the press after the attack on Thursday.

"These are the guys that come to city council meetings, have to listen to boring politicians and sit there", Buckley said. "Journalists tell the stories of our communities, protect democracy, & often put their lives on the line just to do their jobs", Trudeau wrote Thursday. It is owned by the Baltimore Sun Media Group.

The church will hold a vigil for Winters on Friday afternoon prior to a community-wide interfaith vigil for each of the five victims at Westfield Annapolis Mall parking lot on Friday night.
