He was identified as Ahmad Alissa, 21, the suspect in the Boulder, Colorado supermarket massacre. Police said the young man, who is a resident of the nearby town of Arvada, was charged with 10 first degree killings.
In fact, the death toll from the shooting has risen to 10, in which a man armed with an AR-15 rifle, according to CNN, opened fire. Among the victims there is also a police officer, the 51-year-old Eric Talley, among the first to intervene on the scene after the first requests for help.
“He didn’t say anything. He walked in and started shooting,” said a witness who was at King Soopers. The man explained that he was at the cash machine to buy a pizza for lunch with his roommate when a gunman entered the shop. The other witness said the man “fired a couple of shots, remained silent, and then fired two more.” The two men managed to escape from the back of the shop.
It is too early for the FBI to determine what the motive for the killing was. “Our goal is to conduct a thorough investigation that can determine the motive for the suspicion, this effort is underway,” Special Agent Michael Schneide said. Stressing that less than 24 hours have passed since the facts, he concluded that “it is premature to draw any kind of conclusion at this point”.
