A legally purchased pump-action shotgun that was bought about a year ago was used in the massacre of five people at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, Thursday, the Associated Press reported. Jarrod W. Ramos, who had previously lost a defamation suit against the paper, is accused of carrying out the shooting. At a court hearing on Friday, prosecutors said Ramos, who is facing five counts of first-degree murder, barricaded an exit so employees couldn’t flee, then “worked his way through the office.” Four journalists and a sales assistant were killed in the attack. A courts and crime reporter at the paper tweeted, "There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you're under your desk and then hear the gunman reload."
