Four people, including a gunman who was suspected of taking hostages inside a house in Aurora, Colo, died Saturday after a standoff with the police, the authorities said.
Barb Helzer, co-owner of the Rock Restaurant and Bar, said she tensed up when she heard news of the shooting on Saturday. “My whole staff, even the young staff, who normally don’t pay attention, we all said, ‘Oh my God, there’s been another shooting,’ ” she said.
“It is all still a recent reality here. We’re still nervous,” Ms. Helzer said. “You find yourself looking at people differently. We’re careful when we ask people to leave the bar. You don’t take things for granted anymore.”
