On June 28, five people were killed and two injured during a shooting at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland. Journalists at the paper are reporting on the deaths of their own colleagues. 

The Capital Gazette was established in 1884 and has a readership of 67,786. Annapolis representative to the Maryland House of Delegates Michael E. Busch called the Capital Gazette “the voice of the community.”

The parent company of the Capital Gazette, which also owns the Baltimore Sun, has established a families fund through the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County. 

Read a recounting of the shooting from the perspective of the survivors, written by Capital Gazette reporter Chase Cook.

Our hearts break for our colleagues in Annapolis and these funds will help them pay for medical bills, funeral costs, grief and trauma counseling, and other unforeseen expenses that could arise as a result of the shooting.
