Morning after mass shooting, Capital Gazette publishes Friday edition

Jarrod W. Ramos has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

"I'm just so sad that this happened to ... the people and their families", Adams said. Authorities responded to the scene within a minute of the shooting, and Ramos was arrested while also hiding under a desk with the shotgun on the floor nearby, police said.

Police described Ramos as a white man in his late 30s who lives in Maryland. "Thank you to all of the first responders who are now on the scene". He emailed her company and tried to get her fired.

Ramos, 38, who filed a defamation lawsuit against the paper in 2012 for an article about him pleading guilty to harassing a woman - had been firing off threatening tweets aimed at the Gazette and its journalists. In 2011, she took him to court, where he pleaded guilty to criminal harassment and was placed on 18-months' probation.

Shortly after that, the Capital Gazette ran a column, "Jarrod wants to be your friend", which used Ramos' case to warn readers of the dangers of sharing personal details with people online. The woman's experience, he wrote, "provides a frightening look at the false intimacy the Internet can offer and the venom that can hide behind a computer screen". The defamation case was dismissed. And with that anonymity has come racist, sexist and anti-Semitic taunts and attacks, as well as full-fledged campaigns from trolls, individuals or groups whose primary intent is to sow discord on social media platforms. He coined epithets for them - "Evil Tom", he called Marquardt, the paper's former editor and publisher - and kept up a concentrated barrage of insults, vague threats and rants about their journalism and legal work.

When I called before Shabbat to tell her I was thinking of her and her family, she told me they were all still numb from the shock, that several of the victims were known and admired by just about everyone in town, and that her son came home that bad night dreading going to five funerals. According to a 2013 police report obtained by CNN, staffers decided that pursuing any charges against him would be equivalent to "putting a stick in a beehive". According to court documents, it described a "yearlong nightmare" in which a woman said Ramos harassed her after contacting her on Facebook. This guy could really hurt us.'" Here is what we know so far about Ramos: "THE CAPITAL GAZETTE WROTE ABOUT RAMOSIn 2011, the paper published a story about allegations Ramos stalked an ex-girlfriend, Marquardt said.

Ramos filed a lawsuit, which was later thrown out, against McCarthy in 2014.

It went on, "This page is intentionally left blank today to commemorate victims of Thursday's shooting at our office".

In the days after the Capital Gazette attack, musicians have paid tribute to the victims. Five employees were shot dead in what police called a "targeted attack". He was denied bail. In a quiet town where the incoming class of the U.S. Naval Academy just arrived this week and residents take pride in a rich colonial legacy, the shooting at The Capital that claimed five lives opens a new chapter in its long history.

Bolting out the front door, but what only the shooter knew at the time was that the only other exit was barricaded.

The American Society of News Editors and The Associated Press Media Editors are asking newsrooms around the world to join in a moment of silence to honour the five employees who were killed last week at the Capital Gazette newspaper.
