Maryland shooting: U.S. police had been warned about shooter

Authorities identified Maryland shooting suspect using facial recognition software

A judge ordered Jarrod Ramos, 38, from Laurel, 40 km west of Annapolis, held without bond on five counts of first degree murder.

Witnesses said the gunman shot through a glass door and then began shooting at employees in the newsroom using a long shotgun. Ramos was investigated five years ago for a barrage of menacing tweets against the paper.

Police recovered the suspect's auto and searched his apartment where they discovered evidence showing of his planning, but no other details were given about what was found. Altomare said the suspect used a pump-action shotgun that was legally purchased about a year ago to carry out the targeted attack. His fingerprints appear to have been altered, making it hard to identify him, two law enforcement sources said. President Donald Trump has used identical language to describe the news media. Ramos sued after it reported accurately on his guilty plea to charges of harassing a woman he went to high school with. "Thank you to all of the First Responders who are now on the scene", U.S. President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter after the shooting. A violent attack on innocent journalists doing their job is an attack on every American.

Prosecutors say Jarrod W. Ramos opened fire Thursday in the Capital Gazette newsroom. In another tweet, he discussed how he'd enjoy seeing the paper stop publishing, but "it would be nicer" to see two journalists "cease breathing".

In a Facebook post, best-selling author and Miami Herald columnist Carl Hiaasen said he was "devastated and heartsick" to confirm the death of his brother, Rob Hiaasen, affectionately known as "Big Rob" because he towered over people.

Bernie Sanders' (I-Vt.) rise in the 2016 election, Politico reported . "And I think that's a very important distinction". Ocasio-Cortez first tried to argue there was a significant difference between her beliefs and socialism.

Also killed were editorial page editor Gerald Fischman, special projects editor Wendi Winters, reporter John McNamara and sales assistant Rebecca Smith.

In addition to the five fatalities, two other newspaper staffers were taken to the hospital "with non life-threatening injuries", and have since been released, according to Alatzas.

The groups are urging journalists around the globe to join The Baltimore Sun Media Group's moment of silence at 2:33 p.m. Thursday. "So during that time we had consulted with our own lawyers in the best steps that we could take, as well as the police, and we had actually contacted the police to pursue one particular comment in which he wished I would be dead and the police looked into it". "His intent was to cause harm", Bill Krampf, deputy police chief of Anne Arundel County, said at a news conference Thursday evening.

"Obviously, I'm disappointed, you know", Buckley told The Sun on Monday.

San Felice says that the shooting was very calculated and that it appeared the shooter may have been targeting editors specifically. She then watched as a colleague was shot, adding she didn't glimpse the gunman. "Officials at the time said the system had been accessed more than 175 times in a single week". "I'm going to need more than 'thoughts and prayers'". "It's just as important as any other tragedy", Buckley said.
