ANNAPOLIS, Md. — In the moments after a gunman opened fire upon the newsroom of the Capital Gazette on June 28, reporter Wendi Winters grabbed a trash can and a recycling bin and charged the shooter, according to surviving staff members who described the ordeal to the newspaper.
“I absolutely think that Wendi Winters saved my life,” said Rachael Pacella in an interview for the Capital Gazette.
The article goes on to state the following:
Janel Cooley, a sales consultant, told the newspaper that she watched from beneath her desk as the 65-year-old ran toward the shooter, shouting something like, “No! You stop that!” or “You get out of here!”
The Capital Gazette reports that Winters, a 20-year newspaper veteran, had previously taken an active shooter training class in which she was taught that distracting the shooter can save lives.
Six of the 11 people present in the office when the shooter, who police suspect is 38-year-old Jarrod Ramos, survived.
Ramos was charged with five counts of first-degree murder. He is being held without bond.
