Ramos was apparently livid over something published in the newspaper. He once filed a defamation lawsuit against the company and lost. The five killed wasn’t by accident. Police said Ramos “targeted” his victims. Reminiscent of Rambo, dude was armed with a pump-action shotgun and smoke grenades.
After the dust had cleared, police found Ramos hiding under a desk inside the building.
He was then arrested and booked without further incident.
