It’s been just over two years since the June 28, 2018, Capital Gazette shooting that saw five people killed.
The state of Maryland has approved $300,000 to build a memorial called “Guardians of Free Speech” in Newman Park in Annapolis, the Capital Gazette reported.
The design has five stone pillars in front of a carving of the First Amendment, the paper said.
It will stand in honor of murdered employees Gerald Fischman, John McNamara, Rob Hiaasen, Wendi Winters and Rebecca Smith.
Annapolis provided the land and the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Committee in Anne Arundel County raised $10,000 to bring on the designer, the paper reported.
The project is scheduled to be completed in in 2021.
