When Ramos arrived at the multi-office building in Annapolis on Thursday, authorities said, he "looked for his victims as he walked through the lower level" where the Capital Gazette newsroom is located.

Ramos, 38, from Laurel, Maryland, faces five counts of first degree murder in Anne Arundel County criminal court.

Ramos did not speak Friday at his bail hearing, but a woman who saw Ramos Thursday after his arrest in the Office of the Court Commissioner said Ramos was speaking then, hurling racial slurs.

Marquardt, who was the editor and publisher of the paper for 35 years, said during his interview with The Sun that he was so anxious about Ramos that he told the paper's attorneys, "This is a guy who is going to shoot us". "I write about this stuff - not necessarily to this extent, but shootings and death - all the time", Mr Davis said.

An article by Mr Hartley had contended that Mr Ramos had harassed a woman on Facebook and that he had pleaded guilty to criminal harassment, according to a legal document. "It is never really over", McCarthy said.

"She said 'Uncle Steven, I'm scared.' What do you tell a 12-year-old kid?"

Some of the reporters at the paper continued to work throughout the shooting, tweeting as it happened.

Those killed included Rob Hiaasen, 59, the paper's assistant managing editor and brother of novelist Carl Hiaasen.

All were journalists except for Smith who was a sales assistant, police said.

Alexander, a data journalist at Bloomberg Government, talked with a Capital Gazette columnist and set the fund up with an initial goal of $10,000 - but she kept having to expand the goal as donations poured in.

Ramos sued the paper for defamation in 2012.

Tim Henman makes big revelation about Serena Williams
The US Open Grand Slam in NY has said it will update its seeding policy to take into account a player returning from a pregnancy. That, in turn, makes seeding-decisions tricky, as any tournament's seeds should reflect players' ability at the time.

The judge quickly dismissed his case. No defense attorney was listed in online court records, but one note suggests he could be represented by a public defender. In 2013, Ramos contacted the woman he had been found guilty of stalking.

In 2014 Ramos was sacked from his government job. "He would try to communicate with people but he was a loner", she said of Ramos, who sported long brown hair and a beard. The bloodshed initially stirred fears that the recent barrage of political attacks on the "fake news media" had exploded into violence, and police reacted by tightening security at news organizations in NY and other places. It wasn't clear whom the cases involved or what the ultimate outcomes were. A year later he tweeted the names of two Capital staffers whom he said he would like to see "cease breathing".

It listed the five people's names. Authorities responded within minutes, and the suspect was taken into custody without an exchange of gunfire.

Police Chief Timothy Altomare confirmed there had been a previous incident between the newspaper and the suspect, when he made threatening comments online to members of the newsroom in 2013. Police said the gun was purchased legally about a year ago. Though early reports indicated that Ramos had mutilated his fingers to thwart attempts to identify him, a local law enforcement official later told ABC News that an issue with the fingerprint machine ultimately made it hard to identify the suspect, and there was no mutilation. Ramos was identified with the help of facial recognition technology because of what the chief said was some kind of "lag" in getting results from the computer system used to analyze fingerprints. The suspect had previously only been publicly described as a white male in his late 30s who is a Maryland resident. "That is Jarrod Ramos".

A U.S. Labor Department spokesman said Ramos worked on IT contracts for the labor statistics bureau from 2007 to 2014. "I want your prayers but I want something else", San Felice said.
