Source Nr. 3 links to secure.en.wikinews for some reason, and gives a page load error. Is this caused by an incorrect link? I'll try to review this article anyway, but I may not be able to verify everything. Tempo di Valse ♪ 00:40, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

I search for the article title on Google, and found it. Looks like the URL in the source link got messed up somehow. Tempo di Valse ♪ 00:48, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Conflicting sourcesEdit

Maybe I'm just missing something, but this story has me confused. Some of the sources say there was one suspect, others say there were two. The sources also differ over whether the suspect was killed or just wounded. Could someone clarify this for me? Tempo di Valse ♪ 00:59, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

It seems that the CNN source was updated last, so I would go by that. R.T. 01:03, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Oh, okay, thanks. I'll look at it again now.   Tempo di Valse ♪ 01:06, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
OK, I've changed the phrasing of the article to indicate that there was only one shooter based on the CNN source. Everything seems to check out, so I'll publish this article shortly. Tempo di Valse ♪ 01:10, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. R.T. 01:10, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
