You should read several newspaper articles to get a good idea of how a news story is written. When writing a news story, you should include the five W's: who, what, when, where, why, and sometimes how is included as well. Use the five W's to first outline your story about Patrick's death. From that, you can then put them into a story.

  • who: the characters in the story and brief description of who they are
  • what happened: brief description of murder
  • when: the time given in the story when Patrick came home
  • where it happened
  • why: Do police know why someone would kill Patrick?

Once you do this, you can write your news story from your outline. Just remember that a reporter only writes the facts that are given and doesn't put in any opinions about what happened.
