Although the Star Tribune infers that their information comes from a spokesperson from the St. Paul police, the article fails to name a source or directly state "according to police." While the reader can assume that is the source, the article does not have the same professional style that the story for the Pioneer Press contains.
The Pioneer Press first states in the lead that their information comes from the police. In the second paragraph, the story provides the name of the spokesman for the police. In the next paragraphs, the report can refer back to that source, providing clarity and reliability to the story.
