Just go walk around and you'll find something to do.

" powder ranger "
I misread that for a moment and had visions of Power Rangers running about New Vegas.

@Hailinel: Yea, when i first saw them getting mentioned i was like "whaaaaa?" lol. Plus 'powder rangers' is a very fear inducing name for a group.

Yeah, during this fight, random town peoples will die and, like chu52 put it, Goodsprings ain't no Megaton. If it makes you feel better, I reloaded this sequence five times before I was able to complete the fight without losing anybody and it really doesn't change anything. I am 16 hours into the game now and I have not returned to Goodsprings once. If you absolutely must finish this sequence without losing anyone, charge in close to the gang members so they focus their firepower on you and then have the townspeople pick them off as you also VATS it out. Takes a while but it works!

Goodsprings is actually a great "base" early on in the game if you're playing on Hardcore.  It's close to Goodsprings Source, which always has fresh water for you and Geckos to shoot and cook, and Goodsprings has a reloading bench and workbench available without having to go into a building / separate loading screen.  The weapon store there sells good amounts of ammo and mods as well, and you can use the Doctor's House as a place to stash some goods early on in the game.
