On Oct. 27, 2018, a man entered a synagogue in Pittsburgh and began shooting. In the end, 11 people were killed in a massacre officials have said was a hate crime. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was there to report on the attack, its aftermath and its impact on the community. WPSU's Anne Danahy spoke with Lillian Thomas, an assistant managing editor at the Post-Gazette, and Rich Lord, an investigative reporter, who were part of the team that earned a Pulitzer Prize this year for that coverage. 

Anne Danahy is a reporter at WPSU. She was a reporter for nearly 12 years at the Centre Daily Times in State College, Pennsylvania, where she earned a number of awards for her coverage of issues including the impact of natural gas development on communities.
