Newspaper Attack Suspect Charged With 5 Counts of Murder

1

The Maryland man suspected of shooting four journalists and a sales assistant dead at an Annapolis newspaper office has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder.

Jarrod W. Ramos, 38, was known to have a long-standing grudge against the Capital Gazette after the newspaper reported on his guilty plea in a vicious harassment case in 2011. Ramos filed a defamation suit against the newspaper but had his case and his appeal tossed by judges. The suspect did not have a lawyer listed in online court records. A bail review hearing is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in Annapolis. Read more at The Baltimore Sun.
