The first day story on the Rosedale Center stabbing/fight/melee is pretty bare bones in comparison to the information you get next day. The first report on the incident tells the reader when it happened (8 p.m. Friday night), where it happened (Rosedale Center in Roseville, Minn.) and what happened (police shut down the shopping center after a fight broke out).
The story printed the next day revealed more details about the incident. A mall employee who dealt with the suspects in his store was interviewed for the article, police data was given, police officials gave personal statements on the matter and details on what Rosedale Center is doing to bump up security in light of the event.
The main action of the story is given right at the beginning of each story. The only difference is the second story is able to offer more details in its "martini stem" where as the first day story basically had a kabob of information blocks. The leads differ in that it went from just being a stabbing that shut down a mall to a frilly lead that read:
"Shoe-shoppers and teeny-boppers returned to Rosedale Center Sunday afternoon, many apparently unaware of the brawl that had left one teen critically injured and led police to clear the mall and lock its doors on Saturday night," which I believe undermines the seriousness of the fight, which left one teenager stabbed and another with facial lacerations.
TV news reports were summarized in the first day report with little of Star Tribune's own input to the story. The second day story takes on more shape with the addition of interviews and police information, giving more details for the reader to stay interested.
