You’re on the graveyard shift at the Centerville Gazette. You phone the cops to see if anything’s
going on. Lt. Jane Ortlieb of the Centerville Police Department tells you the following:
There was a shooting tonight at the Fandango Bar & Grill on Wilson Street in the Grungeville
section of the city. Two men in the bar got into an argument. When the two started shoving each
other, the bartender threw them out. For several minutes, people in the bar said they could hear
the men still arguing on the street outside. Then there was the sound of a shot being fired. A few
patrons rushed outside to see what had happened, and one of the men who had been arguing lay
on the ground in a pool of blood. He’d been shot in the forehead. The victim appeared to be in his
mid 30s, and was dressed in an expensive-looking suit and tie. The shooter was nowhere to be
seen. The shooting occurred around 10:45 p.m.
Ortlieb tells you the man was rushed to St. Mary’s Hospital but was DOA. She says homicide
detectives are on the scene interviewing bar patrons about what happened but so far, no one
seems to know much. “That’s not surprising,” she adds. “The Fandango is a known hangout for

Just as you’re about to hang up, Ortlieb tells you she just got the cause of death from the hospital
— a .38-caliber bullet wound to the head. “And oh yeah,” Ortlieb adds, “we got an ID on the
victim. He’s Peter Wickham, press secretary for the mayor. Age 35.” Centerville’s mayor is
named Fred Wiley.
