Downtown CDA shooting concerns business owners

Young people partying and drinking in downtown Coeur d’Alene is nothing new; it’s been going on for years.

However, one thing that might have changed, several downtown business owners said Monday, is seeing young people bring guns along for the night. An early Sunday shooting outside a downtown bar left two young men hospitalized, one fighting for his life. In May, a young man was shot and killed outside a downtown bar after arguing with another patron.

Some business owners were surprised to discover they knew the suspected shooter in Sunday’s incident. Adam Johnson, 25, owns a telecommunications company and belongs to the same civic organizations they do. Full story.

Are downtown business owners right to be concerned? Do you feel safe after hours in the downtown area?
