Chron Froot Loops Bureau comeback in '09?

The Houston Chronicle‘s Froot Loops bureau makes a rare appearance today:

Homicide detectives are still investigating an overnight shooting in which a resident of a north Houston apartment said he disarmed a burglar and killed him with his own gun.

The shooting occurred about 10 a.m. Thursday at the Worthington Apartments at 1350 Greens Parkway, KHOU Channel 11 reported.

We have missed the Froot Loops Bureau!

Here’s the actual link to the KHOU story, since the Bureau apparently isn’t a fan of hyperlinks.

UPDATE: Upon re-reading, we are confused. Was the shooting overnight, was the shooting at 10 a.m. Thursday, or was the shooting this morning?

Perhaps the Froot Loops staffer needs to have more coffee with the cereal.

UPDATE 2: On the KHOU video report, Rosa Flores says the break-in occurred about 10 o’clock last night, the owners got home at some point, and the struggle/shooting ensued then.

UPDATE 3: The Chron story has been updated to reflect a 10 pm shooting. It apparently has not been updated with a reporter verifying facts from police and witnesses and reporting those, instead of “reporting” the TV news.
