The Issaquah Press took home awards for its coverage of the Issaquah gunman at the Northwest Excellence in Journalism Awards held by the Society of Professional Journalists.

The regional chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists announced its 2011 awards in a ceremony May 19.

The annual presentation honors the best in journalism, covering a region that includes Alaska, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana.

Reporters Warren Kagarise and Christina Lords and Managing Editor Kathleen R. Merrill earned second place in the spot news reporting category for their coverage of the gunman who prompted Issaquah residents to seek cover after a shootout with police at Clark Elementary School in September.

Christina Lords also nabbed third place in the news photography category for her photo capturing the police response to the Issaquah gunman.
