Bogus headline

"Man Found Dead at Usery Mountain Shooting Range"

Story here

Which immediately makes one think someone was accidentally shot.

Actual story
"The victim ... was found on a roadway around 7 a.m. Monday near the Rio Salado Sportsman’s Club..."
The death has nothing to do with the club but of course that's not the impression left by the headline.

Update: This morning's print edition has a more accurate headline:
"Man found dead on road near shooting range"
