What We Know About The Alleged Gunman At A Maryland Newspaper

Morning after mass shooting, Capital Gazette publishes Friday edition

What we know about the alleged shooter * Jarrod Ramos charged with 5 counts of first-degree murder * Filed a defamation lawsuit against the paper in 2012; he lost * Paper reported alleged threats from Ramos years prior, didn't pursue chargesIt was one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in USA history.

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.

The victims were identified as Rob Hiaasen, 59, an editor and columnist; Wendi Winters, 65, a community correspondent; Gerald Fischman, 61, an editor; John McNamara, 56, a sports writer; and Rebecca Smith, 34, a sales assistant. She said she was afraid Ramos "could show up anywhere, at any time, and kill me". But on Thursday, before the newsroom shooting began, a new post appeared: "Fuck you, leave me alone @judgemoylanfrnd", a reference to Judge Charles Moylan, who upheld the dismissal of the defamation case in 2015.

According to news reports, Ramos had a longstanding grudge against the paper. He said police believe they were sent before the attack, and detectives are now investigating.

A man who had once filed a defamation suit against the Capital Gazette newspaper is accused of opening fire into the newsroom and killing five people Thursday.

Photos of five journalists adorn candles during a vigil across the street from where they were slain in their newsroom in Annapolis, Md., Friday, June 29, 2018.

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.

Mexico, Sweden through to round of 16
Both Sweden and Mexico qualified for the last 16 with Germany crashing out in stunning fashion after losing to South Korea . When Edson Alvarez got his legs tangled and turned the ball into his own net, the writing was on the wall for Mexico .

The Capital Gazette published its newspaper The Capital as normal Friday after reporters covered the shooting from a nearby parking garage.

A representative from the Baltimore Sun Media Group, which owns the Capital Gazette, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"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".

A judge ordered Ramos to remain detained during a court hearing Friday.

William Krampf, acting police chief of Anne Arundel County, said Thursday night that threats had been made to the newspaper on social media before the shooting, but it was not clear if Ramos had made them. The online records do not list an attorney for the individual.

He said police didn't have knowledge that the gunman was targeting anyone in particular and can't confirm whether the suspect knew employees at the paper or just targeted the publication. "I said during that time, 'This guy is insane enough to come in and blow us all away", he told The Los Angeles Times. In a later interview on the paper's online site, Davis likened the newspaper office to a "war zone".
