A sailor slain by a gunman aboard a docked Navy destroyer is being honored at a Memorial Day ceremony near Baltimore.

The annual event at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens in Timonium is paying tribute Monday to Petty Officer 2nd Class Mark Mayo of Hagerstown.

The 24-year-old sailor was shot when he dove between another sailor and a civilian truck driver who had seized her gun aboard the ship docked in Norfolk, Virginia, March 24.

Mayo's remains were buried last month at Arlington National Cemetery.
