  1. Why didn’t KRDO just report that it happened at the Walmart near Platte and Chelton instead of reporting it happened near the Citadel. Just another bad mark for the Citadel.

    1. You posted your comment to the wrong article. BTW, 8100 North Academy is nowhere near the Citadel Mall.

  2. Okay it’s starting to make sense now the 8100 block of North academy they’ve turned those old motels in the homeless shelters.
