A woman who claimed that the Capital Gazette shooting suspect had stalked, harassed and sued her warned a former police official that “he will be your next mass shooter,” according to a new report.

The woman, whose name was not released, also told local station WBAL 11 that Jarrod W. Ramos, 38, the shotgun-toting man who allegedly burst into the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday, killing five staffers, was “a f—ing nut job.”

Jayne Miller, an investigative reporter at WBAL, tweeted that the woman told her Ramos became “fixated” on her for no obvious reason — causing her to move three times, change her name and even sleep with a gun out of fear.

Rob Hiaasen, 59, Wendi Winters, 65, Rebecca Smith, 34, Gerald Fischman, 61, and John McNamara were shot and killed during Ramos’ rampage, the acting chief of the Anne Arundel County Police Department, William Krampf, told a news conference Thursday.

All were journalists except Smith, who was a sales assistant, he said.

Ramos was charged with five counts of first-degree murder, according to online court records.

Ramos, of Laurel, Md., about 25 miles west of Annapolis, is scheduled for a bail review hearing at 10:30 a.m. Friday in Anne Arundel County criminal court. He did not have an attorney listed.
