1-12-20 UPATE – SHOOTER ON THE LOOSE!

UPDATED 1-12-20 –  A limited suspect description of an unknown Hispanic male, thin build, dark short hair was obtained. 
From the police press release on the Thursday night shooting in the M&M Mini-market at 301 S. Ann St. (click here).
     LNP took “Hispanic” out of their description in their rewrite of the police release both in print and online (see below).
     Should it have been included?

DESCRIPTION NOT OUT!

 

     The above is the ridiculous headline on page A-3 of today’s LNP print edition and the actual description in the article.
     Is this a joke? Is this really the best the police can do?
Please check back later today.

    Thin, dark hair…and a guy. That narrows it down to…25% of the population. Expect an arrest within twenty-four hours, as the old mystery novels used to say!
