Some were thwarted by a Capitol Police officer, Eugene Goodman, who—after being chased up a stairwell—diverted them from a hallway where senators and staff members were scurrying to safety. Throughout the tense encounter, Officer Goodman never drew his gun.

Ashley Gilbertson was part of a group submission that was a 2022 Pulitzer Prize Finalist in the Breaking News Reporting category.

The staff of The New York Times was recognized “for its aggressive and revelatory reporting about the attack on Washington on January 6, 2021, delivered as the events were unfolding and afterwards.”
