Live Updates: Police give update on deadly mass shooting at Boulder, Colorado, supermarket – CBS News

A gunman opened fire in a Colorado supermarket Monday, killing 10 people, including a police officer, authorities said. One person was taken into custody at the scene in Boulder, where police said there was no ongoing threat to the public.

Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold identified the slain officer as 51-year-old Eric Talley, who had been with the department since 2010. 

Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty said Talley’s life was “cut much too short,” and said a “painstaking investigation is already underway.”

All of the victims were between the ages of 20 and 65. Authorities identified the other victims as Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Teri Leiker, 51; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; Rikki Olds, 25; Neven Stanisic, 23; Denny Strong, 20; and Jody Waters, 65.

Dougherty said the person in custody was the shooter, who was identified Tuesday morning as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21.

CBS Denver helicopter footage captured authorities escorting a shirtless man in handcuffs who appeared to have a bleeding leg from the scene, but authorities would not confirm if that man is the person in custody. 

Witnesses described a chaotic scene as several loud bangs went off in the store. One man said he first thought someone had dropped something but by the third shot, he said, everyone started running.

“I can’t believe it’s happening in Boulder,” he told CBS Denver.
