Tucson businesses try to get back to normal after shooting

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Tucson shopping center where a deadly shooting took place is trying to get back to normal as businesses around the shooting scene begin to reopen. Unfortunately, it's hard to erase those images.

La Toscana Village shopping center near Oracle and Ina roads was turned into a deadly crime scene Saturday when Jared Lee Loughner opened fire. Yellow crime tape still surrounds much of the parking lot as the investigation continues.

On Monday, officers scoured the entire parking lot looking for any other clues into the shooting that took the lives of six people.

Some of the businesses reopened Monday, but with the crime tape still up they say it's hard to get customers in.

For some, however, it was important to get back to the shopping center to try and help the businesses that have been affected.

"One of the reasons we came here again today was kind of just to get back to business as usual," said customer Kevin Houst.

Although it hasn't been confirmed, there's talk Safeway could reopen sometime Tuesday.
