The Capital Gazette still published its daily newspaper after five employees were shot dead and more were critically wounded at its office in Annapolis, Maryland Thursday.
Hours after the deadly shooting, Capital Gazette reporter Chase Cook said he and his colleagues would publish a paper on Friday. “I can tell you this: We are putting out a damn paper tomorrow,” Cooke tweeted.
The paper released its Friday cover featuring its 5 slain colleagues minutes after midnight.
Maryland law enforcement identified the deceased: Reporter Wendi Winters, assistant editor Robert Hiaasen, sales associate Rebecca Smith, editorial writer Gerald Fischman and reporter John McNamara.
Reporters set up a makeshift newsroom at a nearby parking garage to work on Friday’s edition, which included tributes to their deceased colleagues.
