Colorado supermarket shooter kills 10
A gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday, killing 10 people, including the first police officer to arrive on the scene, before the bloodied suspect was arrested.
Police gave few immediate details of the latest shooting and no known motive for the violence, which unfolded at about 3 p.m. at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, a north-central Colorado city at the eastern foot of the Rockies, about 45 km northwest of Denver, Reuters reported.
Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said 10 people died in the attack at King Soopers grocery.
Police said the gunman, who was not publicly identified, was injured in the violence but they gave no further details.
Police declined to say what kind of weapon was used, but the Denver Post reported that initial 911-emergency calls described the suspect’s firearms as a "patrol rifle."
The bloodshed came less than a week after gun violence last Tuesday that left eight people dead, including six Asian women, at three day spas in and around Atlanta. A 21-year-old man has been charged with those killings.
