Oh that three-letter word

Incase the image below fails to load for whatever reason, I will quote the part I find so ludicrous:
" unidentified person who got injured during a cross fire..."
This is from a Washington Post cutline. What the hell is up with that? Were there copy editors sleeping this morning? "Got injured?" Are you serious? GOT INJURED?

Plus, I'm pretty sure, no matter what followed "cross fire," the words should be hyphenated... Just my two cents.
