  • Vigil held in Annapolis for the victims of the Capital Gazette shooting

Ramos, who is facing five counts of first-degree murder, was denied bail at a hearing Friday. He was ordered held without bond Friday morning.

He also said that Ramos had a history with the Anne Arundel police and was investigated as part of a 2013 incident involving threatening online comments.

Almost seven years ago, Ramos pleaded guilty to a criminal harassment charge, court documents filed in the District Court of Maryland in Anne Arundel County show.

The historic state capital of Annapolis is draped in grief from a shooting attack on the local newspaper, which killed journalists who chronicled soccer games, art exhibits and the fabric of small-city life.

The woman, who was not named in the story, tried to help and suggested that he seek counseling.

Ramos allegedly used a 12-gauge pump-action shotgun and was carrying smoke grenades during the attack.

He is reported to have stopped firing when the police came in and hid.

Ramos, 38, is a former information-technology employee with a long-time grudge against The Capital of Annapolis.

On a website shared by Arundel High School alumni, a person who claimed to be Ramos repeatedly posted quotes about the cost of a lost reputation and detailed the court battle between Ramos and the newspaper.

Supreme Court ends term without retirement
Hardiman and Thapar were among the group interviewed by Trump before he selected Neil Gorsuch for a vacancy past year . Wade is very much in question", said David Cole, national legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union.

Ramos was also once charged with harassment, but Altomare said he was unsure when the charge was filed or whether he was convicted. As the case moved through Maryland courts, Ramos wrote on Twitter he was "suing" half of the county and "making corpses of corrupt careers and corporate entities".

The tweets on the account @EricHartleyFrnd referenced the battle against The Capital, its then-editor Thomas Marquardt and reporter Eric Hartley, who has since left the newspaper.

"Plaintiff has sworn a legal oath he would like to kill Harltey, and he still would", Ramos wrote.

Vice Admiral Ted Carter, superintendent of the Annapolis-based US Naval Academy, tweeted a copy of a condolence letter he sent to the newspaper, saying, "We are all Annapolitans and the Capital Gazette is 'our paper, ' and when tragic events like this happen they affect us all".

"I thought we were going to die", Anthony Messenger, an intern at the Gazette, told ABC News. "It reveals a fundamental failure to understand what defamation law is and, more particularly, what defamation law is not", Judge Charles Moylan of the Maryland Court of Special Appeals wrote in his opinion upholding a lower court's ruling to dismiss the case.

More than 1,000 people have streamed through Maryland's capital to honor five people slain in a newspaper office, quietly clutching candles or hoisting #AnnapolisStrong signs.

Speaking outside the courthouse, Maryland state prosecutor Wes Adams said one of the victims was shot while they were trying to escape through the back doors of the office in Annapolis.

When police arrived, they found Ramos hiding under a desk. "Journalists, like all Americans, should be free from the fear of being violently attacked while doing their job", Trump said at a press conference Friday.
