These are the 5 victims of the Capital Gazette newspaper shooting

Memorial services are scheduled Monday for two of the five journalists killed last week when a gunman opened fire in the newsroom of the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland.

Investigators say Jarrod Ramos held a long-simmering grudge against the Capital Gazette newspaper, and a search of his home turned up evidence he had planned Thursday's attack.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick is expressing sympathy for the families and friends of those killed at the office of the Capital Gazette, which he called his "hometown newspaper".

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

"For years Ramos stewed in his embitterment, over the newspaper's coverage of his unsuccessful defamation case and the newspaper's coverage of his stalking by Facebook of a woman with whom he had gone to high school".

After his lawsuit against the newspaper was dismissed, Ramos posted profanity-laced tweets about the paper, its reporters and editors.

The detective, Michael Praley, said in the report that he "did not believe that Mr. Ramos was a threat to employees" at the paper, noting that Ramos hadn't tried to enter the building and hadn't sent "direct, threatening correspondence".

"There will be a Capital Friday", tweeted Capital Gazette photojournalist Joshua McKerrow.

Inside, the editorial page declared, "We are speechless", but was otherwise blank in honor of those slain.

But that kind of close coverage of one's neighbors is what makes local newspapers so integral to a community.

Ramos has not cooperated with authorities, police said.

"There was a fear that doing so would exasperate an already flammable situation", he said.

Photographs that were widely shared on social media showed newspaper staffers working on laptops in a parking garage to produce Friday's edition while they waited to learn the fate of colleagues after the shooting. The paper, like any publication, had amassed some disgruntled readers, he said, but "a lot of the times it was just people calling us 'The Crapital, ' getting upset at how we portrayed anything".

A representative from the Baltimore Sun Media Group, which owns the Capital Gazette, did not immediately respond to a request for comment. They do journalism because they love what they do.

John McNamara, 56, was a staff writer.

Wendi Winters, 65, a reporter with "a talent for connecting with the community", according to a former editor.

Rebecca Smith, 34, the youngest victim, worked as a sales assistant for the paper.

These words from our national leader who has physically penned in journalists at his campaign rallies, mocked them as reporting "fake news" in front of thousands of jeering supporters, derided specific reporters in personal tweets and repeatedly described journalists as "enemies of the people".

Ramos was also once charged with harassment, but Altomare said he was unsure when the charge was filed or whether he was convicted.

"Newspapers like the Gazette do vital work, and our thoughts are with them amid this unconscionable tragedy", Joel Simon, executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, said in a statement Friday.
