Condolences offered for Annapolis, Maryland newspaper employees

Hundreds of people turned out Friday night for a vigil in Annapolis, Maryland, to remember the five people killed in a mass shooting Thursday at the Capital Gazette newspaper.

At least 300 people gathered at a shopping center, according to the Baltimore Sun, to remember the four journalists and a sales assistant killed when a gunman shot his way into the newspaper’s offices. 

Killed in the shooting were Gazette editor Rob Hiaasen, journalists Gerald Fischman, 61, Wendi Winters, 65, and John McNamara, 56, and sales assistant Rebecca Smith, 34.

An online guestbook has been created to post condolences. Read and sign the online guestbook.
