Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five

Officials in front of house that was searched

Tacoma, Wash., Mayor Bill Baarsma, front left with tie, and Tacoma Chief of Police Dave Brame, second from right, talk to the media during a news conference on Oct. 23, 2002, in front of a home that was searched by authorities for evidence relating to the sniper shootings in the Washington, D.C., area. Police issued an arrest warrant for a former Army soldier they believed may have had information about the sniper shootings that have left 10 people dead in the Washington suburbs. Investigators also delivered another message to the sniper, complying with a request to say, "We have caught the sniper like a duck in a noose.'' John Allen Muhammad, 42, was arrested early Oct. 24, 2002, with John Lee Malvo, 17.
