Tuesday by the A.C. Nielsen Co.
showed entertainment shows bock
on top with an avenge rating of
27.8, compared with 27 for evening
news shows. Each ratings point
represents 921,000 households.

hospital official said.
Matthew Hickey, who was hurt

Bell also was being sought for
questioning in the fatal shootings of
a 36-year-old transient on Tbesday
in Boulder Canyon and a 20-year-
old convenience store clerk in
Broomfield on Aug. 13, Gang said.
The five men were in an area of
the mountains used for target shoot-
ing and motorcycle riding when
their attacker drove up in a blue car
and represented himself as an off-
duty park ranger, Vborhis said.
He took the serial numbers of the
victims’ weapons and began to
march them back down to a toad,
Voorhis said. “As the five were
going down to the road he began
shooting them,” he said.
The car, which was stolen near
Canon City on Aug. 6, was found
abandoned in Boulder later Friday.
Bell 36, was admitted to the
state prison system in 1988 to serve
a 12-year sentence for check fraud
and theft, state Department of Cor-
rections spokeswoman Liz Mc-
Donough said. He has an Illinois
prison record, including a term for
attempted murder in 1972, she said.
