The 38-year-old was armed with a shotgun and smoke grenades when he attacked journalists in their newsroom yesterday afternoon. He was arrested shortly after police stormed the building. He has now been charged with five counts of first-degree murder. The man had unsuccessfully sued the newspaper and one of its former reporters in 2013 for defamation after it ran an article when he pleaded guilty criminal harassment. The case was thrown out in 2015 because he failed to prove that what the newspaper had printed was untrue.
