One of the victims of the Capital Gazette Shooting will be honored during the Naval Academy's basketball game against the Maryland Terrapins Friday night.

The Navy will reserve a seat on press row for John McNamara during the Veterans Classic, there will be a special write-up about him in the game program, and he will also be honored during a timeout.

McNamara graduated from the University of Maryland and covered sports for the Capital Gazette. He was one of five people killed when a gunman came into the Capitol Gazette newspaper in Annapolis and started shooting.
