Kanaan Marcelino, 19, was arrested by the Tulare County Sheriff’s Department on suspicion of having unlawful sex with a minor more than three years younger than he is. A news brief in Tuesday’s Local section incorrectly said Marcelino was arrested for engaging in sexual acts with a minor 3 years old or younger.—Fresno Bee

Parting Shot

A reliable source: Research for our feature article about Kalgoorlie’s 1934 race riots led us to write that British miner Charles Stokes was shot in the stomach (The race riots that split a town, West Weekend Magazine, March 14). A reader has told us that Mr Stokes, whose dying words were “a ding got me”, was in fact Australian-born of an English mother and he was stabbed, not shot. The reader should know. She is his daughter.—The West Australian
