"At this point in time, it would start to polarise people and I don't want to make people angry", Buckley, 55, who moved to the USA in 1992 and has become a successful restaurant owner in Annapolis, said.

Despite a full front page, the paper's opinion section was purposefully and boldly left largely blank, with the few short graphs printed beginning with, "Today, we are speechless".

Police recovered the suspect's vehicle and searched his apartment where they discovered evidence showing of his planning, but no other details were given about what was found. Altomare said the suspect used a pump-action shotgun that was legally purchased about a year ago to carry out the targeted attack.

In a Facebook post, best-selling author and Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen said he was "devastated and heartsick" to confirm the death of his brother, Rob Hiaasen, affectionately known as "Big Rob" because he towered over people.

The victims have been identified as four journalists - Wendi Winters, Robert Hiaasen, Gerald Fischman and John McNamara - and sales assistant Rebecca Smith.

Spain's Iago Aspas thought he scored before Russian Federation keeper's brilliant kick save
It was the classic "tiki-taka" style that led to a World Cup title in 2010, bookended by a pair of European Championships. Spain had 25 shots, nine of which were on frame, but Akinfeev saved them all, only conceded on an unfortunate own goal.

According to a Friday statement reportedly released by Stephen T. Moyer, the secretary of Maryland's Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services, the facial recognition scan of Ramos "performed as designed".

A crowd gathered in downtown Annapolis on Friday to honor five people who were killed in Thursday's attack on the Capital Gazette offices.

Reporters from the paper covered the story.

The reporter recalled a June 2016 mass shooting attack on Orlando's gay nightclub Pulse and how terrified people crouching inside had texted loved ones as dozens were killed. Police said surveillance video recorded the attack, which began with a shotgun blast that shattered the glass entrance to the open newsroom.

"That door is never locked from the inside out", he said, "And as soon as that happened it signaled to me, 'OK, this is intentional".

Russia's Win Over Spain 'Heroic'
Russian Federation pulled level towards the end of the first half when Dzyuba's header hit Gerard Piqué's arm at a corner. Forward Artem Dzyuba buried it for his third goal of the tournament to awaken the subdued crowd.

Court documents say a gunman who fatally shot five people at a Maryland newspaper tried to hide under a desk after the attack until police arrived. But "one thing that I do feel now is that he can no longer silence me".

President Donald Trump, who has previously referred to the media as the "enemy of the people", tweeted condolences Thursday afternoon to the victims and their families.

The newsroom looked "like a war zone", he told the Baltimore Sun. "I am devastated", reporter Danielle Ohl tweeted.

Jayne Miller, a reporter with Baltimore's WBAL-TV, said Thursday that she spoke to a woman who claimed Ramos had stalked, harassed and sued her - becoming "fixated" to the point where she became frightened enough to move out of state. "Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job", CNN reported. "And it can not give rise to a defamation suit", Judge Lamasney said at a hearing on the case on March 29, 2013. "They don't make a lot of money".

Japan squeeze into last 16 on disciplinary rule
The game finished in farcical circumstances with both Japan and Poland happy with the result and content to play keep-ball. The Bayern Munich man did have his best chance to score against Japan - but scooped a shot over from 10 yards out.
