WHDH in Boston got some heat after publishing, and then deleting, an “exclusive” story announcing the arrest of two suspects in connection with the high-profile shooting death of an Iraq war veteran in Malden.
That report and related tweets were deleted from the station's website following comments from Malden Police Chief Kevin Molis indicating that, in fact, “no arrests [had] been made” in the case.
The station later changed the report to say two men arrested in a Thursday night drug raid are considered “persons of interest” related to the investigation of a fatal shooting.
Here's a screen shot of the original story:
