Gunman Kills 10 People at Colorado Market Shooting

Colorado shooting

Ten people, including a police officer, were killed Monday after a gunman opened fire in a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado.

The attack in Boulder ended with police detaining an injured, shirtless suspect at the King Soopers market.

The shooting was live-streamed by witnesses and broadcast on YouTube.

The incident began at about 14:30 local time (20:30 GMT) on Monday when the suspect entered the supermarket and began firing.

The fatal shooting comes less than a week after shooting attacks at three spas in the Atlanta area left eight people dead.

Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said a suspect is in custody, but authorities did not share any information on his identity or on the type of weapon used or any possible motive.

“We will work around the clock to get this accomplished,” she said, adding that such a complex investigation will take at least five days to complete.

Herold said the slain officer, 51-year-old Eric Talley, was one of the first officers to respond to the scene.

Officials did not disclose the identity of any of the other victims, saying they needed to first notify family members.
