Memorial set for Capital Gazette shooting victim John McNamara

A memorial service for John McNamara, a Capital Gazette sports reporter for more than two decades, will be held from 10 a.m. to noon July 10 at the University of Maryland College Park Chapel.

McNamara died Thursday when he and four others — editorial page editor Gerald Fischman, assistant editor and columnist Rob Hiaasen, sales assistant Rebecca Smith and community reporter and editor Wendi Winters — were killed in an attack at the newspaper in Annapolis.

An estimated 500 people attended a celebration of the life of Hiaasen Monday evening at the Irvine Nature Center in Owings Mills.

A memorial service for Winters will take place at noon Saturday at the Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, 801 Chase St. in Annapolis, with a reception following at 3 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis.
