Corrections that appeared in print on Thursday, April 8, 2021.

Because of an editing error, an article on Wednesday about a triple homicide in Brooklyn misstated the length of time that Joseph McCrimon was in prison after a manslaughter conviction. It was five years, not 15 years.

An article on Wednesday about a $212 billion budget agreement reached by New York State leaders described incorrectly state lawmakers’ response to a lawsuit over school aid. The Legislature committed to the financial obligations set out in the lawsuit once before, in 2007, before canceling the funding; it is not the case that it was the first time it agreed to the funding.

An article on Friday about a 9-year-old boy who was killed in a Southern California shooting misidentified the organization that determined that in 2020, there were more than 600 shootings in which at least four people were shot by one person, compared with 417 in 2019. It is the Gun Violence Archive, not the Violence Project.

An article on March 14 about trapping and hunting certain predators in Montana misstated the population estimate for grizzly bears in 1975, when they were listed as an endangered species. There were an estimated 800 to 1,000, not 100 to 200.

An obituary on Sunday about Malcolm Cecil, who helped to create a synthesizer prominently featured on four Stevie Wonder albums in the 1970s, misstated part of the name of a song by Mr. Wonder. It is “Living for the City,” not “Living in the City.”

An obituary on Wednesday about the Florida congressman Alcee Hastings referred incorrectly to his chief of staff, Lale Morrison. She is a woman.

An obituary on Wednesday about the theologian Hans Küng misstated the middle initial of the priest and author Andrew Greeley, who wrote about Dr. Küng in his book “The Making of the Popes 1978.” It was M, not W.
