Newseum honors journalists killed in Capital Gazette shooting
WASHINGTON (FOX 5 DC) - The Newseum in D.C. is paying tribute to the Capital Gazette journalists who were killed during last summer's shooting in the newspaper's newsroom in Annapolis.
The museum will rededicate its Journalists Memorial, a two-story glass memorial that recognizes reporters, editors, photographers and broadcasters who lost their lives reporting the news.
According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, 11 journalists died in combat and 34 journalists were murdered in 2018.
The four journalists killed in the Capital Gazette shooting were Gerald Fischman, John McNamara, Rob Hiaasen and Wendi Winters.
The accused shooter Jarrod Warren Ramos, has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder in connection with the shooting. He was scheduled for a hearing on the same day as the rededication.
