I just read the following number 1 sentence in newspaper, but I think that it should have been written either like number 2 or 3. Can any one please explain to me why they wrote it that way????
1- Two people shot in the city 2 hours apart. ( I read this in a news paper)
2- Two people were shot in the city 2 hours apart.
3- Two people got shot in the city 2hours apart.
