(Worthy News) - A man with a shotgun and a beef against his local newspaper stalked into the offices of the Annapolis Capital Gazette on Thursday and opened fire on the newsroom, killing five people and wounding two others, police said.
Police called it a “targeted attack,” saying the gunman had sent threats to the newspaper on social media and entered the building looking for specific people.
The chief identified the gunman only as a white male in his late 30s. The Baltimore Sun, which owns the Capital Gazette, identified the suspected gunman as Jarrod W. Ramos, a 38-year-old Laurel resident who unsuccessfully filed a defamation lawsuit in 2012 against the paper over coverage of a criminal harassment case against him. Other news outlets reported similarly. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
