A 21-year-old man has been identified as the suspect in the shooting deaths of 10 people, including a police officer, at a Boulder, Colorado, supermarket, officials said Tuesday.
Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa was charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder in connection with Monday’s mass shooting at the King Soopers grocery store, Boulder police Chief Maris Herold said during a morning news conference. He was shot in the leg and taken into custody following the incident, according to police.
“We will hold the evildoer responsible to the fullest extent of the law for his actions,” Colorado Gov. Jared Polis told reporters during the news conference.
