Statement on Northwoods Church story

Posted: Updated:

From our editor's notebook:

If you were watching our news last night, you may have seen a story that led you to the conclusion there was a shooting at Northwoods Community Church in Peoria.

The shooting was a suicide which happened on a trail near the church grounds.

During our reporting of that story, we linked it to the Texas church shooting tragedy, which took 26 lives.

The stories should not have been connected.

We made a mistake.

We apologize to Northwoods Community Church and to our viewers and we regret the mistake.
