It's Bearded Spock's Universe, We're Just Living In It

Can you spot the problem with this story?

New Orleans Police said a security guard shot a man in the face at a hotel in the Central Business District Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened around 7 a.m. at a hotel in the 100 block of St. Charles Avenue, according to police spokesman Capt. John P. Bryson.

Witnesses said the guard got into an argument with a visitor, 30-year-old Erik R. Beelman, over whose prior military service record was more veracious. The two men began pushing and shoving before throwing punches.

The guard, who Bryson said identified himself as Christopher Marlowe, then pulled out a .40 caliber handgun and shot Beelman once in the face.

If you can spot the problem, post it in the comments. I now return to blogospheric seclusion.

P.S. R.I.P. Acidman.

Veracious? They were fighting over who's record did not have typos?

Christopher Marlowe died in a bar fight, he isn't supposed to shoot someone.
