POLICE BLOTTER

January 02, 1998|By Richard Irwin

In an item in the Police Blotter in yesterday's editions, Michael Antonio Blake, 28, was mistakenly identified as a suspect in a double shooting Dec. 7 that left one man dead. In fact, he was wounded in the attack. Charged with first-degree murder in the incident was Dante Johnson, 20, of the 5800 block of Key Ave.

The Sun regrets the errors.
