Newspaper shooting suspect's grievances began with classmate
ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The man accused of fatally shooting five Maryland newspaper employees had been carrying a long list of grievances that extended well beyond the newspaper.
Courthouses in Maryland are clogged with lawsuits brought by Jarrod Ramos against judges, reporters and lawyers he thought had wronged him.
The lawsuits carry a common thread. In each case, they took the side of the classmate who said Ramos harassed her relentlessly.
Ramos, a 38-year-old resident of Laurel, Maryland, has been charged with five counts of murder in Thursday's shooting. It's one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in U.S. history.
The Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis became a particular target because journalists wrote about a harassment conviction he received after the woman who had once been his high school classmate said he became threatening.
