Maryland Shooting Suspect Battled Newspaper In Court And Lost

Before Thursday's attack, the Committee to Protect Journalists listed 1,306 such killings since 1992, only seven of which occurred in the United States.

Hiaasen, 59, an editor and columnist, was the first victim publicly identified. The brother of best-selling author and journalist Carl Hiaasen, he was a feature writer at The Baltimore Sun for 15 years before moving to the Gazette in 2010 as an assistant editor.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Four are reported to be dead and multiple injured after a shooting at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, police say.

A third person was transported to the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, according to Lisa Clough, a hospital spokeswoman.

Ramos had pled guilty to criminal harassment five days before the newspaper published the column.

Then, in 2013, Ramos sued Anne Arundel County District Judge John McKenna.

Meanwhile, investigators said they would seek to learn more of the gunman's motives. "I don't know why he stopped", he said.

"He waged a one-person attack on anything he could muster in court against the Capital", said Tom Marquardt.

"I don't know what to say other than our thoughts and prayers are with them and their families, and we take comfort knowing that they are in God's embrace", Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh said.

Word of a shooting in the newsroom spread rapidly through the media far beyond Maryland as reporters reflected on their memories of working at the Capital or community newspapers like it and contemplated the possibility that their newsrooms could become scenes of violence, too.

Ramos was identified using facial recognition technology, Altomare said. The gunman was not carrying any identification, authorities said.

According to the report, Ramos resides in Laurel, Maryland, according to multiple law enforcement sources.

'WWE Tough Enough' Winner Matt Cappotelli Dead After Cancer Battle
Cappotelli's fellow " Tough Enough III" victor , John Morrison , said Cappotelli is "one of the best people I've ever known". Earlier this month, it was reported that WWE legend, Vader, had passed away following a severe case of pneumonia.

Several months later, Ramos filed a longer 22-page claim of defamation, but the lawsuit was again dismissed by the court as Jarrod failed to produce any piece of evidence that supported his claim. They later took the suspect, Jarrod W. Ramos, into custody.

Authorities said the suspect was undergoing questioning by detectives.

Neither Enterprise Information Services nor the Bureau of Labor Statistics immediately responded to request for comment.

After it was purchased by The Baltimore Sun Media Group in 2014, the company moved to an office building, across from a local mall, which was the site of Thursday's shooting.

The gunman behind one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in USA history had reportedly tried to sue the publication his victims worked for years earlier.

Whatever the reason behind the latest instance of American gun carnage turns out to be, one tweet by a Capital Gazette reporter made clear that it would not be enough to halt the enterprise of journalism in a free society.

Anne Arundel County Acting Police Chief William Krampf confirmed the deaths Thursday at a news conference.

A reporter for the daily, Phil Davis, tweeted a chilling account of how the "gunman shot through the glass door to the office and opened fire on multiple employees".

News of the Thursday massacre began with a chilling tweet sent at 2:43 a reporter at The Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland's capital.

The paper ultimately decided it didn't want to pursue charges against Ramos, according to Altomare.

"There was a fear that doing so would exacerbate an already flammable situation", he added.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly spelled the name of Loren Farquhar. This story also has been updated to reflect new reporting from police regarding the suspect's fingerprints.
