4 journalists among the 5 victims

One of the victims in the Capital Gazette shooting in Annapolis, MD, was a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University.

Davis added: "There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload".

Police said 170 people were inside the Gazette's building during the attack.

"There's clearly a history there", the police chief said. The suspect had previously only been publicly described as a white male in his late 30s who is a Maryland resident.

On Thursday afternoon, authorities were questioning Ramos but were unaware of the motive behind the shooting.

Ramos has not been cooperating with police, and investigators said they identified him through facial-recognition technology.

A Twitter account with Ramos' name and the handle @EricHartleyFrnd is believed to be Ramos', a law enforcement source said. The report also noted Ramos had not registered any firearms in Maryland.

Court records show that a year later, in July 2012, Ramos filed a complaint against Hartley and the newspaper, alleging he was defamed by the story.

He lost a defamation case against the paper in 2015 over a 2011 column he contended defamed him.

Anne Arundel County acting Police Chief Bill Krampf called it "a targeted attack" on the newspaper. He had no ID on him when he was apprehended and refused to identify himself. Authorities said he was "uncooperative" with interrogators. "We would go out to dinner together, karaoke". Fischman was editorial page editor. But when something like that happens, she said, "Your Spidey senses go off - something big is up".

The 12-gauge pump-action shotgun used in the shooting was bought legally a year ago, Altomare said.

Ramos is believed to have used a long gun to kill the five people at the Gazette and injure three others.

Both they and other Reddit users who reported the same problem found no record of the messages having been sent, either. T-Mobile reportedly told Gizmodo that "It's not a T-Mobile issue", pointing them back to Samsung.

"I don't know why he stopped", said Davis, who later said he was safe.

"As I stated to Judge Pryal there were two entrances to the offices in which this attack occurred", Adams said.

"My heart is with Capital Gazette and the people of Annapolis right now". WHAT HAPPENED THURSDAYInvestigators said the suspect, armed with a shotgun, entered the Capital Gazette office and deployed smoke grenades.

"5 shot dead at The Capital", read the headline on the article written by 10 journalists on the day five of their colleagues were killed.

The Capital is one of America's oldest newspapers, beginning life as the Evening Capital in 1884. Its sister newspaper, The Gazette, is one of the oldest newspapers in America, its origins dating back to the early 18th century.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said: "The senseless attack on a Maryland newspaper today is sickening".

The Capital Gazette had been threatened on social media as recently as Thursday, Krampf said.

He said the threats "indicated violence". Press freedom groups have also reported an increase in physical assaults on reporters, particularly at campaign events and other political venues.

"You would never expect that folks who are just doing their job, who are people you know, would have their lives just ended like that", he said.

State flags were lowered to half-staff and a vigil was planned for Friday night amid an outpouring of condolences and support for the families of the victims.
