Correction for March 26 

Errors in a letter about Patrick McCullough.

In our March 12 letters section, we ran a letter than contained several misstatements regarding Patrick McCullough, who was involved in a widely publicized North Oakland shooting incident in 2005. According to the official police account of that incident, McCullough shot Melvin McHenry in the arm, and not the back as alleged in our letter. McCullough also was apparently armed at the time of the incident, and did not go back into his house to arm himself, as alleged by our letter. McCullough told police that he shot the youth in self-defense. The District Attorney's office ultimately declined to charge him in the shooting.
