A tale of two Chopsticks
Chopsticks & Sushi, the Asian restaurant and bar at 1630 Welton Street that was the site of a fatal shooting yesterday, is not connected to Chopsticks China Bistro, the goofily-named restaurant that just moved from South Federal Boulevard to 5117 South Yosemite and is a Jason Sheehan favorite.
But plenty of potential patrons of the Englewood Chopsticks were confused yesterday, when they heard of the incident. For the record, it's business as usual at Chopsticks China Bistro.
Not so at Chopsticks & Sushi, where the Denver Police Department responded to a call of a shooting yesterday afternoon and found a male victim with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at Denver Health; the investigation is continuing.
No word on when that Chopsticks will reopen; no one was answering the phone there this morning, and the door is shut tight.
