AZ Family news staff. I understand that all facts are not known at the time a story is reported. I've read 5 stories this morning though that have all felt completely void of any information at all. Boy grazed by bullet, truck rolls over, summer temps higher than spring temps, officer involved shooting, and now this story. Whatever happened to reporting the full story once its available and not just trying to break the story? Its seems to be worse on Sundays also. Skeleton crew or staffing issues possibly?

It's the week end, they only have grade school kids doing the reporting. Really bad reporting on azfamily as usual.
