During the week in Roseburg, I was part of an AP team that included several reporters, video shooters and photographers. Covering a mass shooting is easier when you’re part of a great team of journalists. We produced multiple stories, too many to list, but here are a few I worked on that stood out.
Our dramatic narrative retelling of the shooting: Oregon shooter showed little sympathy in calculated killings Roseburg shooting narrative
A Sunday story on churches’ response to shooting: Pastor’s sermon: ‘Violence will not have the last word’ Pastor’s sermon story
And an important story about mothers, guns and mental health: Mother-son bond over guns links Oregon, Connecticut slayings Mother-son bonds
(Writing this last one, I wished I had a lot more space… there was so much left out on the cutting room floor.)
