Golden Corral Becomes Safe Place After Shooting

Golden Corral Becomes Safe Place After Shooting


LIVE IN THORTON RICK SALLINGER, COVERING COLORADO FIRST. DOMINIC? Reporter: IT SEEMS EVERY TIME WE SEE A TRAGEDY LIKE THIS IN THE STATE, PEOPLE COME TOGETHER FOR COLORADO TO HELP EACH OTHER AND EVERYONE HEAL. WE SAW SOME OF THE SUPPORT AFTER THE SHOOTING LAST NIGHT. Reporter: YES DOMINIC, YOU HAVE TO LOOK FOR THE STORIES. THAT IS WHAT WE DID TODAY. WE DID NOT HAVE TO GO FAR. ONE PARKING LOT AWAY, RIGHT HERE AT THIS GOLDEN CORRAL. IT BECAME A REFUGE. THERE IS POLICE IN AND OUT. Reporter: IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG FOR THE CHAOS NEXT DOOR TO SPILL OVER TO THE NEARBY GOLDEN CORRAL. THE POLICE AND S.W.A.T TEAM STARTED TO STAGE PEOPLE AND BRING EMPLOYEES OVER AND CUSTOMERS WHO WERE STRANDED. THEY WERE NOT ALLOWING CARS OUT OF THE PARKING LOT. Reporter: THE DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS FOR THE RESTAURANT, HOWARD WALTERS. EVERYONE WAS SCARED. Reporter: THAT IS WHEN THE CALL WAS MADE TO FEED EVERYONE FOR FREE. AS YOU CAN IMAGINE, EVERYONE WAS DISTRAUGHT. THE FACT THAT WE COULD SIT THEM DOWN, CALM THEM DOWN AND GIVE THEM SOMETHING TO DO. TO TAKE THEIR MIND OFF OF IT UNTIL THE RIDES SHOWED UP. MAC USING THE BUSINESS TO COME TOGETHER FOR COLORADANS IN NEED. WE FELT LIKE THIS WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO. Reporter: DOMINIC, I HAD A CHANCE TO SPEAK WITH WALMART EARLIER ABOUT THE EXTRAORDINARY EMPLOYEES INSIDE WHO STAYED CALM AND HELPED GET PEOPLE TO SAFETY AND EVACUATED. THEY WERE BACK AT WORK TODAY, THEY WERE CLEANING AND RECLAIMING THE SPACE THAT ONLY A FEW HOURS BEFORE HAD BEEN SO BADLY VIOLATED.
