The town of 613 residents is a mix of retirees and people who work 26 miles away, in St. George, said Bruce Jones, one of the residents.
It’s a community where the lots are big and hills and pinion and juniper trees create natural barriers between neighbors.
Jones lives an eighth of a mile from where Jorgensen and the others died. Jones said he was home Thursday, but didn’t hear any gunfire or other sounds of trouble.
"We know a couple of people, but they’re down the road a bit," Jones said.
