Newspaper shooting suspect's defence requests new subpoenas

August 13, 2019 - 5:53 AM

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Defence attorneys for the man charged with killing five Capital Gazette employees in Maryland have requested records about allegations of the shooter's harassing behaviour at work and records from veterinary clinics where his cat was treated and euthanized.

The Baltimore Sun reports Jarrod Ramos' defence requested five new subpoenas Monday. They're seeking information from Ramos' employer, Enterprise Information, and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, as well as veterinarians Ramos had contact with about a month before the shooting.

The defence wrote that Ramos' government security clearance for his job was terminated in 2014 amid "suitability concerns." Ramos' defence says sources accused him of posting threats to Twitter.

The defence previously sought information related to Ramos' longstanding grudge against the newspaper.

Judge Laura Ripken has yet to rule on the requests.
