Well, reporting a total different story than what really happened (a farmer shot his worker in a labour dispute after attempting to steal a trekker vs the worker stole the trekker and security chased him and shot him) and also quoting a false interview with a police officer vs the actual statement released by police...Mistakes in articles do not count as Fake News. The source even stated that the details were vague...
