Annapolis shooting suspect "wanted to get revenge", lawyer for harassed woman says

Five people dead in Maryland newsroom attack suspect arrested

Morning after mass shooting, Capital Gazette publishes Friday edition

The police said he had barricaded a back door in an effort to "kill as many people as he could kill".

"We would have been much longer in identifying and being able to push forward in the investigation without that system", Tim Altomare, Anne Arundel county police chief, said at a press conference June 29. And he took to Twitter to call out the people he insisted had wronged him. The threats have to be "explicit statements of one's intent to kill or inflict serious physical harm against another person". "The Capital is not a giant newspaper".

Ramos, who wore a navy jumpsuit, did not speak or enter a plea.

Among those killed was veteran columnist, editor and journalism teacher Rob Hiaasen, 59.

The newspaper is part of Capital Gazette Communications, which also publishes the Maryland Gazette and CapitalGazette.com.

"After that, his obsession turned to me, too, and he started harassing my sister and my family", McCarthy said. In a different tweet, Ramos said he'd enjoy seeing the paper stop publishing, but "it would be nicer" to see two journalists "cease breathing".

Mr Ramos, 38, appeared in court via video link to be charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

Ramos filed a defamation lawsuit in 2012 against the paper for an article that detailed a criminal harassment charge against him a year earlier.

During Ramos' 2013 appeal, the appellate court judge in that case appeared to rebuke Ramos, who was representing himself in the matter: "A lawyer would nearly certainly have told him not to proceed with this case". He also sent a barrage of menacing tweets that led to an investigation five years ago.

ABC secures interview with Trump fixer Michael Cohen
President Donald Trump's attorney and fixer Michael Cohen indicated that the much-touted loyalty he had to Trump only goes so far. Cohen and his lawyer, Guy Petrillo , did not immediately respond to Reuters' request for comment.

One of the considerations for choosing Annapolis was its close-knit nature.

Buckley said the country needs "Bono sort of leadership". "Despite how quaint or how historic, how uncomplicated some of our day-to-day challenges are, we are vulnerable to the worst possible scenario".

Caitlin Walls works in an interior design shop. "It's sad it's such a growing reality in places that you thought were the safer places", Walls said of the shooting.

Special tactical police gather after a gunman opened fire at the Capital Gazette newspaper, killing at least five people and injuring several others in Annapolis, Maryland, June 28, 2018.

Though born in Tennessee, Belichick was raised in Annapolis, where his father was an assistant football coach at the U.S. Naval Academy.

"For my entire life, The Capital has been my hometown newspaper".

But as he returned to Washington from Wisconsin Thursday night, Trump walked away when reporters asked if he had any words of condolence for families of the dead reporters. A lawyer representing the paper in 2011 told the Daily Beast following yesterday's shooting that they had been "concerned about him at the time, it definitely came up more than once".

"The moment I heard there was a shooting at the Capital, I told my wife, 'That's Jarrod Ramos, '" McCarthy said. Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh told ABC News the suspected gunman was found by police hiding under a desk in the newsroom and was apprehended there.

Explaining Friday to a judge why Ramos should remain in custody, Adams said Ramos worked his way through the newsroom, shooting victims along the way. In 2005, the building that housed his business was destroyed by a fire, and he had to relocate.
