Today marks the one-year anniversary of a shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, in which Rebecca Smith, Wendi Winters, Rob Hiaasen, Gerald Fischman and John McNamara were killed.

This is today’s Capital Gazette front page.

Here is the front page the day after the shooting.

A page of coverage from the Capital Gazette: One year after The Capital Gazette shooting, staff members reflect on community support and report on the one-year mark of five members of the staff being killed by a gunman.

Information on memorial funds that honor the victims can be found here.

Jarrod Ramos faces five counts of first-degree murder and many other related charges. His trial is scheduled for November. In April, he pleaded not guilty and not criminally responsible, Maryland’s version of an insanity plea.

Events planned Friday in Annapolis include a gun violence summit, a garden memorial dedication and a concert. Tribune Publishing staff across the country are planning a moment of silence at 2:33 p.m. Friday.
