COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) — The University of Maryland is honoring the five victims killed in the Capital Gazette shooting.

The Philip Merrill College of Journalism will rename an executive seminar room as an on-campus memorial for Maryland alumni John McNamara and Gerald Fischman, along with adjunct professor Rob Hiaasen and their colleagues Rebecca Smith and Wendi Winters.

A ceremony to dedicate the room will happen in December.

Merrill College is also creating a writing contest in their memory.
