Atmosphere different at Sioux Falls hair salon

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Sioux Falls hair salon that was the site of a deadly hostage situation has taken steps to make employees feel more comfortable, and to remember the woman who was killed.

A picture of former manager Amanda Connors now hangs in the back room of the Cost Cutters, and another picture of her is at her chair, surrounded by flowers.

Police say Tyrone Smith shot and killed Connors Sept. 11 before locking himself in the store and tying up his girlfriend and her co-workers. They say Smith let the four workers go a half hour later, then shot and killed himself.

Cost Cutters General Manager Kaylee Spolum said she changed the back room so it looked and felt different for the employees. They also are being offered counseling.
