DENVER â€” A man suspected of shooting Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Marc Cohn during an attempted carjacking was arrested after a 5 1/2 -hour standoff with police.
Cohn, who had a hit with the song Walking in Memphis and won the Grammy for best new artist in 1992, was shot in the temple late Sunday when a man fired into his band’s van in a parking garage.
Cohn, who is married to ABC news reporter Elizabeth Vargas, was treated at a hospital and released Monday. He canceled the remaining five stops on his tour with Suzanne Vega.
(Jenn saw Suzanne Vega and presumably Cohn in concert this weekend, hence me thinking this might be of interest to her…)
