The Star Tribune reported on Wednesday that a 21-year-old man was put in custody in connections with a shooting of a University of Minnesota freshman, Timothy Schumacher, and two robberies that occurred around campus last month. On Tuesday night, the suspects was captured in his front yard without resistance, said a police report. After he was turned in to University police, the suspect has been taken to Hennepin Court jail.
Since the suspect was arrested on Tuesday and the story run on Wednesday, it has immediacy. Likewise, it has impact and relevance for the readers of the newspaper because they heard that a student was shot, but never heard anyone was arrest. So, this is a good fellow-up story that many readers anticipated.
