The Baltimore Orioles have paid tribute to The Capital Gazette shooting victims by placing five lilies at the press box seat reserved for the newspaper.

The MLB team also held a moment of silence before their game on Friday night against the Los Angeles Angels.

Long-time sports writer John McNamara was among five employees shot to death on Thursday in Annapolis at the offices of the local newspaper.

McNamara was a sports writer for The Capital for decades before being shifted to community coverage.

At his seat were the five lilies and the front page of Friday’s edition of the newspaper, which read, “5 shot dead at The Capital.”

Before asking the crowd to reflect in silence about “a senseless act of violence,” the Orioles displayed photos of each of the five victims. McNamara was singled out for his coverage of the team.
