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.

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.
