Corrections and Clarifications

  • A Sept. 30 story about former police Chief Rodney Monroe incorrectly said the chief initially described Officer Randall Kerrick’s fatal shooting of Jonathan Ferrell as “appropriate.” A police statement at the time described the encounter between Kerrick and Ferrell as appropriate, but it said the shooting was excessive. Based on the Observer’s article, the error was repeated Wednesday in a guest opinion column by Keith Larson.
