“The shooter ran from the scene, according to the sergeant. He declined to release a description of the shooting, saying investigators were working to follow up on suspect leads.”

Always the case in these shootings and homicides isn’t it? Special note, the word ‘shooting’ was probably meant to be ‘shooter.’

I appreciate you pointing out the lazy typo, Jake. It has been corrected.

While I understand your distrust of local police on these matters, I suggest you reach out to them and share your criticisms of their investigative strategies. We do strive to ask the question when no description is given of an at-large suspect/vehicle, and we are often told it is for investigative reasons. We can surmise based on our experience what could be going on (such as maybe they know who the person is or have a strong lead toward such, but revealing that publicly could harm the investigation in their eyes), but in our reporting we always aim to avoid speculation or conclusions without corroboration.

I'll speculate as to why they didn't describe the shooter. He's Hispanic, and they're being PC. When it's a white guy, the race is disclosed. I see it all the time, and I see other commenters point it out in the comments section on news sites.

It doesn't harm the investigation to give a description by age, race, weight, height and gender.

Maybe newsom could make a law to make illegal murder illegal.
