(Newser) – Police on Friday revealed several new grim details about the deadly shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday, among them that the gunman barricaded the building's rear doors. Officials speculate that was either to prevent would-be victims a path out or to prevent police from getting in; one victim was apparently shot while trying to exit that way. Police aren't getting clarification from the man charged with the five murders; CBS News reports Jarrod Ramos is not cooperating. Anne Arundel County Police Department Chief Tim Altomare says Ramos used a pump-action shotgun that was purchased legally roughly a year ago, per NPR, and that evidence found at Ramos' apartment indicated the attack was planned.
