Breaking news you CAN get elsewhere (06-06-2007 edition)
Police are investigating three shootings that occurred early this morning across the Houston area, according to KTRK (Channel 13).
Authorities gave a reporter this account: The first shooting happened in east Houston. A man shot his wife in the knee at their home on Uvalde and Audrey. The woman was taken to the hospital in stable condition. Police believe the shooting was accidental.
The second incident occurred in northwest Houston. A man found another man with a gunshot wound to his calf in a convenience store parking lot on Antoine and Breen.
The man was rushed to the hospital and police are still investigating how he got shot.
A third shooting sent one man to the hospital with three gunshot wounds in east Houston. Police said that a man found another individual breaking into his vehicle on Avenue H and Wayside and confronted the man with a gun.
A scuffle ensued and the vehicle's owner shot the man twice in the leg and once in the stomach. His condition was unknown.
Hmm, well, maybe after the Chronnies have their Froot Loops and check all the TV reports, they can follow up on these "unknowns" and do some actual journalism.
UPDATE: How about that link and one-liner from the Chron's Texas Politics blog? I don't think those folks are sitting around watching the Austin TV news and reporting on it. Actually, the merging of the Chron and Express-News bureaus in Austin really seems to have given the reporting a boost.
