COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Springs is honoring a range of people who helped respond to the Planned Parenthood shooting - from a doctor in a neighboring building who treated the injured to a grocery store manager who worked with shoppers locked inside during the attack.

Mayor John Suthers awarded the Spirit of the Springs award to Dr. Derek Hurst, Cathy Stark and four others on Tuesday for their response to the Nov. 27 shooting.

The other honorees were Michael Hagiwara, a nurse who helped Dr. Hurst, and Kelly Hayes, Bridget Holisky and Carmella Vega who work in nearby medical offices.

Suthers’ office says Stark, an assistant store manager at King Soopers, worked with her team to keep customers safe and comfortable and distributed coloring books and crayons to the children.
