>> A man who shot his way through a Maryland newsroom, killing at least five people, was in custody on Friday, and has been charged with five counts of murder. It was one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in U.S. history. Police said the gunman opened fire through a glass door at The Capital Gazette newspaper group in Annapolis, then sprayed the newsroom with bullets.
>> He entered the buidling with a shotgun. And he looked for his victims as he walked through the lower level.>> Early Friday, The Capital newspaper revealed the front page of its morning edition on Twitter, featuring photos of each of those killed. They include four editors and a sales assistant.
Phil Davis, a Capital Gazette crime reporter had tweeted Thursday, There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload. Authorities have not identified the suspect but The Capital Gazette and Baltimore Sun both cited police as naming 38-year-old Jarrod Ramos.
Ramos appeared to have a long running feud with The Capital Gazette after he fought and lost a court battle against them. In 2012, he brought a defamation lawsuit against former Capital writer Eric Hartley and the paper's publisher. Three years later a Maryland court ruled in favor of the newspaper.
During that time a Twitter user calling himself Jarrod Ramos posted tweets critical of the paper, Hartley and local judges. The account went silent from January 2016 until Thursday, just before the shooting. On Thursday police in different parts of the US had bolstered security and other news organizations, including the New York Times as a precaution.
