    Word

    She's been like that from/since her childhood.
    I've been waiting six o'clock.
    I've known herTuesday.

    Can I use "from/since" as the first sentence in the last two? Please.

    Grammar

    A court has heard that a young man arrested after shooting on Tyneside left one man dead is to be charged with murder.

    Is there sth missing between two black words? Please.

    Normally since is preceded bya verb in the perfect tebce, and followed by a word or expression denoting past time .
    She has been like that since childhood.
    I have been waiting since 6 o'clock.

    I have known her since Tuesday.

    Without the correction, the original sentence is wrong or just not better?

    Re: Word

    Are you sure that's how the original read? after shooting.

    Not after a shooting or even for a shooting or in connection with a shooting?

    If you have typed the original correctly, then there is a typo in the originial.

    A court has heard that a young man arrested after a shooting on Tyneside left one man dead is to be charged with murder.

    Note: in the sentence, 'left' is past tense of 'leave'


    Breaking the sentence down:
    A court has heard that a young man is to be charged with murder.
    and
    A young man arrested after a shooting on Tyneside is to be charged with murder.
    and
    A shooting on Tyneside left one man dead.

    Put these together:
    A court has heard that a young man (who was ) arrested after a shooting on Tyneside left one man dead is to be charged with murder.
