    That second graf is really good, Tatum. It highlights the most current info. I would suggest a third graf that lists Laurette’s condition before you go into the “story” of the shooting. You don’t include that info, so you’re going to have listeners thinking she’s dead.

    You have the attribution before the quote. Good. But I’ve always been partial to “colon” introductions, like you have with the second source. That way you don’t have that moment of hesitation between “said” and the beginning of the soundbite.
