In a very rare reaction, a US local newspaper was sad after knowing that their publication won a Pulitzer Prize.
The award were given to the newspaper for the coverage of a mass shooting in its own newsroom.
But there was no celebration as the Capital Gazette in Maryland learned on Monday it had won the most prestigious prize in American journalism.
Staff quietly hugged in memory of five colleagues killed by a gunman who burst into their office in June 2018.
Pulitzers also went to the New York Times and Wall Street Journal for investigations into President Trump.
Also, two journalists jailed in Myanmar for reporting a massacre of Rohingya Muslims were part of a team from Reuters news agency that also won an award.
Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo were sentenced last year to seven years in prison for breaking the Official Secrets Act, despite an international outcry over what was widely seen as an attack on media freedom.
Reuters has said it will not be celebrating the prize until their two colleagues are released.
The Capital Gazette in Annapolis won a special Pulitzer Prize citation for its coverage and courage in the face of one of the deadliest attacks on journalists in American history.
The Pulitzer board awarded the citation with a $100,000 (£76,400) grant to further the newspaper’s journalism.
Employees John McNamara, Wendi Winters, Rebecca Smith, Gerald Fischman and Rob Hiaasen died in last summer’s attack.
But the staff still managed to publish a newspaper on schedule the next day.
A man with a longstanding grudge against the Capital Gazette is charged with the attack.
He pleaded not guilty last year.
