"Nineteen-year-old man"

Don't news outlets often refer to 19-year-olds as children?

They probably haven't decided which way this story can be used to spin whatever they want spun. If a cop had shot him, he would have been the "slain teen."

Somewhere I thought I had seen the two injured referred to as children, but as close-mouthed as the police have been about this, I probably heard it in community gossip instead.

Whether they are referred to as “teens” or “adults” does seem to depend upon the agenda being pushed at the time.
