The Michigan Daily has posted a story about the crime alert released today, “Shooting on North Campus”, written by none other than longtime reporter Maria Sprow. Although I’ve come not to expect much from the Daily, this error seems inexcusable:
Paragraph 1: “A 40-year-old man walking on a North Campus sidewalk was shot five times early this morning …”
Paragraph 7: “Only one of the shots wounded the victim, who was able to flee to a nearby apartment to call police.”
According to DPS, the AP, and the Ann Arbor News, the man was shot once. The Daily also reproduced the vague computerized sketches released by DPS in full on their website, showing us exactly who to keep an eye out for: scary black men.
