Young Suk Fero, owner of Fero's, killed in robbery/arson; suspects arrested

Denver Police Chief Robert White and Commander Ron Saunier just announced that three arrests had been made in the quintuple murders that took place early yesterday morning at Fero's Bar & Grill on Colorado Boulevard; among the five victims in an incident that began as a robbery and escalated into homicide and arson was Young Suk Fero, who'd owned Fero's for 28 years.

She still worked twelve hours a day at the spot, where a framed certificate of the Best of Denver award that Fero's won for Best Martini and Tofu in 1990 still had a place of honor.
