Gazette Shooting Suspect Barricaded Exit to Prevent Escape

Candles representing the slain journalists of Capital Gazette sit on display during a candlelight vigil held near the Capital Gazette the day after a gunman killed five people inside the newspaper’s building in Annapolis Md

"We are more than just our questions and our writing and our headlines". "He wrote a letter to her [employer] stating that they should fire her because she's a 'bipolar drunkard.' He did awful things to this woman". "There was a fear that doing so would exacerbate an already flammable situation", said Timothy Altomare, chief of Anne Arundel county police.

Ramos, armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades, allegedly shot out the entrance windows to the Capital Gazette newsroom just before 3 p.m. Thursday. A judge placed Ramos on 18 months of supervised probation and ordered him to continue therapy and refrain from any further contact with the woman or her family, the court documents show.

By 2016, the courts had rejected the last rounds of his many appeals of the lawsuit over the column.

A woman who was cyberstalked by the gunman who shot dead five people at a United States newspaper office last week has said she lived in constant fear he would one day find and kill her.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The man accused of killing five Capital Gazette staff members had threatened the newspaper in 2013 and continued to pepper social media with dark and often profane warnings.

The letters have Ramos' return address, according to what police told the Sun.

The attorney representing Ramos did not respond to a request for comment from NBC News.

The fund celebrates the lives of Gerald Fischman and John McNamara, who were alumni of the University; Robert Hiaasen, a lecturer in Journalism at the University; Wendi Winters, a reporter at the Capital Gazette; and Rebecca Smith, who worked on the Capital Gazette sales team. Prosecutors say 38-year-old Jarrod W. Ramos opened fire Thursday in the Capital Gazette newsroom. He tweeted at the newspaper's official account, @capgaznews, 149 times.

"This guy was thinking about this for an incredibly long time", Marquardt said. It was exhausting dealing with him.

"It's not as noticeable when a state flag is down but you still have your main flags at full mast", Buckley told the Baltimore Sun after the making the request, adding he thought the tragedy merited national attention. "When I first saw Mr. Ramos, he was so madly intense".

Ramos had contacted Lori by email in 2009, reminding her they went to high school together. "He would tell her to do things like hang herself", McCarthy said. "He is malevolent. He likes to do evil".
