Capital Gazette reveals how shooting unfolded as memorial services begin in Annapolis

Capital Gazette reveals how shooting unfolded as memorial services begin in Annapolis

"You know, you get up and check the Gazette phone app everyday, and you just feel like you're connected to these people", one person said. "We're just trying to tell their stories". The paper reported Friday that Richardson said she was advised "we were doing all we could do" in response to Ramos' threats. In 2011, Ramos pled guilty in a harassment case involving the online stalking of a woman he went to high school with. Feeling that he might be experiencing some problems, the woman had encouraged him to seek counseling. "That sparked months of emails in which Ramos alternately asked for help, called her vulgar names and told her to kill herself", the article said.

Ramos's aunt Vielka Ramos later told the Sun that her nephew was intelligent but distant from his family. The suit against the newspaper company was ultimately dismissed, but Ramos continued to harass Capital Gazette employees over the internet. Ramos directed scores of profanity-laced tweets at the paper's journalists, AP reports.

McCarthy said on Thursday, when he heard about the shooting at The Capital newspaper, he immediately thought of Ramos. 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". In each case, they took the side of the classmate who said Ramos had harassed her relentlessly for a year.

A year later Ramos filed a defamation lawsuit against the newspaper in a Maryland state court and later added a charge of invasion of privacy over the newspaper's coverage of his conviction. The complaint of Jarrod Ramos was thrown out in 2015 on appeal, as the court declared that he failed in showing, that anything that was printed on the paper was incorrect. The concerns were so dire that the federal agency decided that "in order to mitigate potential security risk, Mr. Ramos will not be permitted back on BLS premises", read one email from an agency employee. According to court documents, the judge said, "There is nothing" to prove "anything that was published" was in fact false.

In 2014 Ramos was sacked from his government job.

Ramos was employed by an IT contractor for the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics - the agency that does the monthly jobs report and other economic data - from 2007 through 2014, a department spokesman said. It wasn't clear whom the cases involved or what the ultimate outcomes were.

Police said that after a search of his Laurel apartment Thursday, they found evidence, which they did not detail, showing that he had planned the attack.

Anne Arundel County police chief Timothy Altomare said Ramos was not cooperating with investigators and that he was identified using facial-recognition technology.

Then we learned that the Post Bulletin's advertising director, who worked at the Capital Gazette from 2008 to 2013, knew four of the five people killed. He did not exchange gunfire with officers when he was taken in.
