In 2015, George embedded with the Baltimore Police Department during the internal investigation of the death of Freddie Gray. His coverage contributed to the Baltimore Sun being named a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist.
He wrote a three-part series on gun violence that examined why street violence was becoming more lethal, and it prompted trauma surgeons to undertake a national medical study.
