      The only thing missing is the name of the suspect, and it is entirely possible that the information isn’t available yet — the guy is in critical condition and his ID (if he has one) could be fake.

      It is better to post the article as it is so that people affected by this incident have some clue as to what is going on rather than waiting until every last detail becomes available.
