    You guys are horrible reporters! What ever happened to the five W’s of journalism? What, When, Why, Where and Who. Once again, jumped the gun (no pun intended) and posted half of a story. Your paper is truly disappointing! Next time, wait for the whole story – it’s not like you have competition.

    hmm 300 North 400 West between 2 and 2:30 p.m I see the where and when, the who is obviously pending release by the police, as for the why, well, that’s up to the susp to reveal. Perhaps you can get off your huffy bike and chill, they provided what they could. fyi Fox13 has revealed the same meager details, perhaps you can complain on their page too?

    Amy Heer, they are seeking a reporter for this site, so maybe you should apply? All that being said, I’ll say that the “rush to get the news out” these days is crazy. Just look at CNN announcing that the shooter in California the other day had been identified before the fire was even totally out. Of course that’s nothing new, as the outstanding Chicago Tribune learned in 1948. Always have to be first.

    Also, there is competition, although its online presence is only semi-competitive.

    I like your news. HOWEVER; Brian Hyde and Dallas are two loons. Bryan tells people to shut up on the morning show. He can not tolerate people who do not hold his views on government and police.

    Just watched the 600 news on Channel 5 NBC out of SLC. They didn’t even tell as much as was reported here. Good work guys. Hopefully they won’t charge anyone until they’re sure, unlike the one in LaVerkin the other day.
