Capital Gazette Employees March in July Fourth Parade

Staff from the Maryland newspaper where five employees were shot to death walked in the Fourth of July parade in Annapolis. 

Mayor Gavin Buckley said the city invited journalists from The Capital newspaper to participate in the parade Wednesday evening.

The mayor said he believes it's symbolic for the town, in terms of healing from the tragedy. 

Buckley also said former employees of the paper are returning to show support and that anyone connected to the paper is welcome to walk in the parade to feel that "the city has their back."

The newspaper staffers had a place of honor near the front of the parade.
