Bayhawks hold pregame moment of silence for Capital Gazette victims

The Chesapeake Bayhawks and local politicians honored the victims of Thursday’s Capital Gazette shooting in a pregame ceremony Monday night.

Gov. Larry Hogan, Maryland House Speaker Michael E. Busch, Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh, Bayhawks team president Mark Burdett and owner Brendan Kelly joined Capital reporter Bill Wagner on the field at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium before the Annapolis-based Major League Lacrosse team’s game against the Boston Cannons.

“All of our prayers go out to The Capital and everybody that was touched by this tragedy,” said Hogan, who also thanked the first responders honored at the Bayhawks’ Hometown Hero Classic game.

Pictures of those killed Thursday afternoon — Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith and Wendi Winters — were shown on the video board, and an extended moment of silence was held.
