Newseum opens new installation about Capital Gazette shooting

The Newseum in Washington D.C. has a new installation about the attack that killed five staff members at the Capital Gazette in Annapolis in June.

“Behind the News: A Deadly Attack on a Community Newspaper,” looks at the risks journalists face in an increasingly hostile climate for the press.

The exhibit focuses on how the staff of the Capital Gazette, part of the Baltimore Sun Media Group, put out a newspaper the day after the mass shooting.

Shortly after 2:30 p.m., on Thursday, June 28, a man holding a shotgun burst into the newspaper offices and shot dead five staff, according to Anne Arundel County Police.
