I read a CNN article and I found the following sentence:

"From what I see, I don't believe any of the individuals that were killed" were shot law enforcement during the crossfire with the suspect, Trochesset said.

I think it should be shot by law enforcement. But it’s hard for me to believe CNN made a mistake like this.

Am I correct?

You are right, it should be "shot by law enforcement."

But it’s hard for me to believe CNN made a mistake.

Journalists are churning out thousands of words per day. Occasionally small mistakes are to be expected.

  • Is it common that they make mistakes like this?

  • @user67265 It's not common. The typical newspaper article will not usually have a word missing like that. However, it's not impossible.
