Capital Gazette shooting: Staff publish Friday edition after a gunman killed five people and injured two more



Staff at a Maryland newspaper have published a Friday edition after a gunman killed five people and injured two more at the paper's office.

 
"We are putting out a damn paper tomorrow," tweeted Chase Cook, a Capital Gazette reporter. Staff worked in the car park to get the paper out.


The gunman, who fired through a glass door into the newsroom on Thursday with a shotgun, was arrested afterwards.


He has been charged with murder and has a bail hearing shortly.


A Capital Gazette reporter tweeted the charge sheet which shows that Jarrod Ramos was charged with five counts of first-degree murder.
The suspect is reported to have unsuccessfully sued the newspaper group in 2012 for defamation.


The paper tweeted the front page of their Friday paper as well as obituaries of their colleagues.
