If anything it serves to better his reputation.
An assassin's greatest art is killing, an assassin's greatest weapon is fear. Shaco has basically made Ram Steed into an example, a warning to othe's out there who think they are safe to interview anyone. I'm sure if Shaco had wanted to actually kill Ram Steed, he could have just left a blade in his heart and his skull along with a Jack in the Box in his insides.
