Please note that the “person of interest” should be presumed innocent until proved guilty in a court of law. Unless he’s been formally charged, it may not even be correct to say he is alleged to be the shooter. The headline went a bit too far. “Suspect” would have been more appropriate than “Shooter.” Every journalist should make a conscientious effort to avoid contaminating potential jury pools with prejudicial statements as a matter of consideration for all of their fellow citizens.
