Newspaper Wins Pulitzer Prize For Coverage Of Mass Shooting In Its Own Newsroom

: 04/16/2019 - 10:41

A local newspaper in the US has won one of the most prestigious prizes in journalism for coverage of a mass shooting in its own newsroom.

Staff at the Capital Gazette in Maryland quietly hugged when they found out they'd won a Pulitzer.

Five of their colleagues died when a gunman burst into their office in June last year.

Pulitzers were also awarded to the New York Times and Wall Street Journal for their investigations into President Donald Trump.
