Putting the "new" in "news"

The following is from a "Top Stories" link on the FoxBaltimore web site. Like most of their "Top Stories," it doesn't have a link directly to the "Top Story." Make sure you read the last sentence, the one I put in bold.
Man Shot in Barber Shop
A barber waiting to be picked up by his wife after work is killed in west Baltimore. It happened in the 1100 block of West Baltimore Street at Reflections barber shop just before 9 p.m. last night.
Police say a shooter entered the store and opened fire. 40-year-old Kevin Ware was hit several times. Ware was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police are looking for a black male who ran from the scene.

Ahhh, Fox Baltimore, I aspire to your level of journalistic integrity. One day, Fox Baltimore, I will surpass the stature of lowly blogger, and I will join your ranks as the mostest elitest reporters in Baltimore.

Quadruple shooting around 8:00 p.m. at Smallwood & Ashton in SW Balto. Male victims rushed to shock trauma.

WBAL claims it was a triple shooting.

I also read triple shooting. Hopefully something official will be out by morning.

I also haven't seen anything about the 600 block of S. Lehigh. Any known details? I drove by there a few hours after you commented, but I didn't see anything amiss.
