How is it that the title to the story is :Manhunt for Armed Suspect in Salem Continues yet... the commentary states: man that they considered to be armed - so which is it??? Is he ARMED or is he Considered Armed... Is there reporting that is fair and accurate?

EDITOR: Thank you for your question. The answer is: Both. The police are looking for an armed suspect because they believe that suspect to be armed.
