What a poorly written story. Did the suspect approach in an unmarked police vehicle (as the story says) or was the investigator in an unmarked police vehicle??? I think we know the answer but the story makes you wonder. Wish for a speedy recovery for the investigator.

I agree with JJ. Bad articulation. Likewize on that speedy recovery as loving prayers go out to the officer and his family.
