1st place: Strongest moment in small spot news category and clean background. 2nd place: Strongest composition in small spot news category. Nice flow with lots to look at in the image and a different perspective than usually seen in spot news. 3rd place: Good job on photographer getting to scene quickly while things were still happening. The concern on the people on the left and right of the victim made for a better moment.
