At least five people are dead in what police are calling a “targeted attack on the Capital Gazette,” a newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.
Jarrod Warren Ramos, 38, of Laurel, MD has been named as the suspect. Ramos reportedly lost a libel claim against the paper in 2012.
Ramos was found guilty of harassment in 2013 and sentenced to probation. He lost an appeal for a trial by jury in 2015.
In an email exchange between Ramos and several staff members of the Capital Gazette from November 2016, Ramos lashed out at the paper for apparently removing a comment he made from a story they ran about his harassment case.
“You people have no explanation for the removal of my comment?” he wrote. “Even though it appears you have acted with personal spite, ill will, and a desire to see me come to harm? Even though it appears to be a conscious effort to conceal or ignore anything contrary to the words of a vengeful source of highly questionable credibility? Are you guys truly the champions of free speech, accountability, and organizational transparency, or do those things only really matter when they suit your purposes to make people look bad and generate revenue?”
Ramos filed an action against for libel a few days later, which he ultimately lost.
Public record shows that Ramos is not a registered voter.
Today’s shooting occurred around 2:40pm, when authorities were called to the scene. Since the attack, numerous reports have stated that there may have been explosive devises on scene which have been “taken care of,” and that the scene is now secure.
“Police said the suspect had not yet been identified but they know he is a white, adult male and the weapon used was ‘described as a long gun,'” according to Fox. “Police also said ‘there was no gunfire exchanged between officers and the suspect.’
The Associated Press has reported that the suspect is not cooperating with authorities.
“Law enforcement encountered a problem identifying the suspect because he has mutilated fingers,” said the Fox Report. “However, it is unclear if they were self-mutilated, resulted from injuries during the shooting or were longstanding injuries.”
“Gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees” wrote Capital Gazette reporter Phil Davis, who was present during the attack. “Can’t say much more and don’t want to declare anyone dead, but it’s bad.”

Two Men Arrested for Planning Terrorist Attack on Trump Tower in Support of ISIS
They’re from South Carolina and Texas.
The FBI has arrested two men and charged them with planning terrorist attacks on locations such as New York’s Trump Tower in support of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.
Kristopher Sean Matthews of South Carolina and Jaylyn Christopher Molina of Texas have been charged with conspiring to provide material support or resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization.
Matthews adopted the pseudonym Ali Jibreel, and Molina the name Abdur Rahim.
The pair allegedly plotted to attack government facilities and New York’s Trump Tower, discussing their plans in jihadist chatrooms. They were busted by federal informants within these honeypots.
“We need to stick together, we need to defeat them, we need to take a lot of casualties,” said Molina of the pair’s plotting. Molina spoke of his allegiance to ISIS in the server. “You are my enemy (America) and never will I wear your flag … but I will raise the black flag of Allah.”
They also spoke of the proposition of traveling to Syria in order to fight for ISIS, an idea that would’ve almost certainly resulted in their quick capture or death. American citizens caught fighting for ISIS on foreign battlefields have proven to be a legal nightmare for American military and civil law to manage.
Both were arrested on Monday. They face a maximum penalty of twenty years in prison, with a lifetime of supervised release.
These clowns didn’t get very far in actually planning acts of violence in support of ISIS, and they seem to have somewhat missed the boat- ISIS has largely been defeated by American-backed Kurdish militias and the Iraqi and Syrian governments. But they deserve punishment nonetheless.
