Capital Gazette Employee: Fellow Reporter Who Charged Shooter With Trash Can 全aved M

On 07.09.18 04:22 PM posted by Rob Shimshock

Capital Gazette employees reflected on a colleague Saturday who they said charged the shooter, buying others time with her sacrifice.

Reporter Wendi Winters charged shooting suspect Jarrod Ramos with a recycling bin and trash can during the June 28 attack,*The Capital Gazette reported. She had learned at an active shooter training hosted by her church that running and hiding were preferable to fighting an assailant.

鉄he may have distracted him enough that he forgot about me, because I definitely stood up and was looking at the door, Gazette sales consultant Janel Cooley said. 的知 sure he wasn稚 expecting anyone to charge him.

The 65-year-old Winters yelled something along the lines of 添ou get out of here! or 哲o! You stop that! at the shooter,* Cooley said.

的 think that Wendi doing what she did served as enough of a distraction that maybe he didn稚 see us, fellow Gazette reporter Rachael Pacella said. 的 absolutely think that Wendi Winters saved my life.

Winters had once given Pacella the shirt she was wearing when her colleague had a big interview but had spilled gasoline on her own clothing. Winters also asked Gazette photographer Paul Gillespie how he was doing frequently after the death of Gillespie痴 brother.

Gazette intern Anthony Messenger said the slain reporter put in effort to make him feel comfortable at the office, according to the report.

Pacella, Messenger, and reporter Phil Davis hid or got out of the line of fire during the time they say that Winters, a*16-year*Gazette employee,* bought them.

的t sounds like her, Winters son, Phoenix Geimer, said regarding his mother痴 apparent actions during the attack. 鉄he痴 got four kids, she痴 not going to take it from anyone.

Anne Arundel County Police Lt. Ryan Frashure declined to speak about Winters role during the pending investigation into the shooting.

The shooter killed Winters, along with four others who were in the 11-man newsroom on June 28.
