Was a man shot by unknown suspects in Lake Worth last Sunday night? No. But ABC25/WPBF thinks it happened.

The man that was shot, if ABC25/WPBF is to be believed, has no life-threatening injuries. The only long-term damage to the community at large is WPBF and their false news reporting. If you're interested you can read my review of TV news reporting in central Palm Beach County (PBC) using this link.

The location of this shooting incident is well outside the city limits of the City of Lake Worth in what's called the Lake Worth Corridor which is in unincorporated PBC. A lot of reporters, especially of the TV news variety, have a difficult time wrapping their heads around the concept of "suburban Lake Worth". Here's what WPBF reported:
LAKE WORTH, Fla. —A man is hospitalized after being shot in Lake Worth Sunday night.
      Just after 8 p.m. deputies responded to shots fired in the 100 block of Fern Lane.
      When deputies arrived they found a male shot in the leg.
Here's how easy it is to find out where a property is located in PBC.
