PINNED POST: News from Post reporter Elliott Wenzler: Downtown shooting in City of Lake Worth early Sunday morning (suspect in custody).

First, this latest news by Wenzler (link and excerpt below) stands in dark contrast to this news in The Palm Beach Post last June by another Post reporter:

LAKE WORTH — ■■■■ ■■■■■■ was watching “Orange Is The New Black” when he heard four gunshots in the early Saturday morning hours where he lives on North F Street in Lake Worth.

Reporter Elliott Wenzler’s news report includes no references to “popular” TV shows — used for SEO purposes (“clickbait”) — and Wenzler’s original report directed readers to this crucial information as well:

“Call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-
458-TIPS (8477).”

The news report by beat reporter Kevin Thompson last June did not include this vital information in the initial reports when Jose Aguilar Juarez was murdered on June 17th. This murder remains unsolved.

Use this link for Wenzler’s news report datelined Sunday, August 6, 7:07 p.m.:

     The fatal shooting occurred at about 12:30 a.m. in front of Restaurante Y Pupuseria Las Flores located near the intersection of Lake Avenue and Dixie Highway, said Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office. The argument which led to the shooting began inside the Salvadoran restaurant, Barbera said.
     The Latin diner, which is across the street from City Hall and is only a few blocks from a sheriff’s office substation, isn’t in an area in which residents would expect a shooting to occur, neighbors said.
     “We walk around downtown all the time and feel safe,” said local Mark Beems.
