Donald Trump lowers flag to honor five shooting victims in Maryland

Donald Trump lowers flag to honor five shooting victims in Maryland

Jarrod Warren Ramos, 38, is accused of walking into The Capital newspaper on Thursday and shooting dead five employees with a shotgun.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders fields questions from reporters over what happened with the Annapolis mayor's request to lower USA flags on federal property. Buckley said, according to the newspaper.

Tronc CEO and Chairman Justin Dearborn, said the victims would forever be remembered as "outstanding people and journalists who we will continue to honor". Buckley told the paper.

President Donald Trump addressed the shooting Friday, calling it a "horrific, disgusting thing" that "shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief".

The Monday evening memorial at Irvine Nature Center is expected to be a "celebration of life" for the 59-year-old assistant managing editor of the Capital Gazette in Annapolis.

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

Ramos signed the letter under the statement: "I told you so", and then wrote that he was on the way to the newspaper "with the objective of killing every person present".

Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley made the request a day after an armed man entered the newsroom and killed four journalists and one member of the paper's sale team.

"[Trump] is well aware his rhetoric against the media, calling them fake news, the enemy of the people and more creates a risky situation", Amy Siskind said on Twitter.

The president has said Thursday's killings at the newspaper "shocked the conscience of our nation and filled our hearts with grief", and said that "Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job".

A column by Hartley contended that Ramos had harassed a former high school classmate on Facebook and that he had pleaded guilty to criminal harassment, according to a legal document.

'At this point in time, it would start to polarize people, ' he said.

Sanders said that as soon as Mr. Trump heard about the request from Buckley, he asked his staff to reach out and verify that the mayor made the request. She declined to say who specifically received them.

Retired publisher Tom Marquardt told the Capital Gazette he had concerns about Ramos and called police on him in 2013.
