The alleged killer of five Capital Gazette employees mailed three threatening letters to Maryland courthouses and a law firm before Thursday’s shooting at the Annapolis newspaper , Anne Arundel County police said Monday.

While the letters were thought to have been sent last week, the specific date was not immediately clear, the police said. The letters were opened on Monday, at which point the recipients contacted the authorities, Limansky said.

The letters were being considered as evidence in the investigation and the police could not further describe the contents, Limansky said.

Authorities have accused Ramos of spraying the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis with gunfire over a longstanding grudge he had nursed against the newspaper. Ramos waged a long legal battle with the paper over a column it published about him, and his lawsuit was eventually dismissed.

Maryland's Court of Special Appeals and Prince George's County Circuit Court both ruled against Ramos in his defamation claim against the newspaper. It was not immediately clear why Ramos had sent a letter to the Baltimore City Circuit Court.
