COUNCIL REMEMBERS VICTIMS ON ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF CAPITAL GAZETTE MASS SHOOTING IN ANNAPOLIS

STATEMENT FROM COUNCIL CHAIR TODD TURNER – COUNCIL REMEMBERS VICTIMS ON ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF CAPITAL GAZETTE MASS SHOOTING IN ANNAPOLIS 

The Prince George’s County Council, on this solemn anniversary of the mass shooting in the newsroom of the Capital Gazette, remembers the victims who lost their lives during that tragic event.  Journalists and newsroom staff play a critical role in our communities as they work to tell our stories.  Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith and Wendi Winters were part of our community and will not be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers remain with them, and the colleagues, families, friends and loved ones most directly affected by this tragedy.
