She might need to spend a little more time at the range.

One detail I picked up in a video is that the GBI, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, is involved. They have a lot of resources that local police and county Sheriffs do not, and it effectively means there is an APB out through the entire state for the other suspect.

The GBI has their own heliport, as well as fixed wing aircraft. A friend told me of witnessing one of their major operations, and he said he thought it was an Army Air Assault training exercise. However, their rifles had ball ammunition, and they arrested some 20-30 bad boys.

I suspect that many of these articles have no editors involved at all.

I think many are simply machine translations of broadcast material.

No pictures of the perp in the hospital, so I guess we must consider that they are Holder’s People!

How would you write it to enhance the store owner and the gun?

My first thought exactly. When the story doesn’t say the perp is dead, it’s always a disappointment.

Too bad they didn’t put him on an Arsenic-IV drip, rather than some morphine for the pain.

I think nonvalueadded would prefer less ambiguity.

Perhaps: The store owner used a handgun to shoot one suspect,

#9: Perhaps we should say to “ the one that got away”.
