A major tragedy just occurred in Boulder, Colorado.
Ten people were killed during a mass shooting inside of a Boulder, Colorado supermarket.
One of the victims who was gunned down was veteran officer Eric Tilley who was the first officer on the scene.
The shooting occurred at the King Soopers supermarket and the police arrested a shirtless suspect but have not given any further information.
The Associated Press covered the story and reported these details:
A shooting at a Colorado supermarket killed 10 people Monday, including a police officer who was the first to respond to the scene, authorities said.
Police arrested a suspect, but didn’t reveal his name or any details about the shooting at an evening news conference where Boulder police Chief Maris Herold fought back tears.
Investigators had just begun sorting through evidence and witness interviews and didn’t have details on a motive for the shooting at the King Soopers store in Boulder, which is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of Denver and home to the University of Colorado, said Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty.
“This is a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder County,” Dougherty said. “These were people going about their day, doing their shopping. I promise the victims and the people of the state of Colorado that we will secure justice.”
Here’s a video of the alleged suspect of the shooting:
Fox News didn’t stay behind and added these details:
Ten people were killed, including a veteran police officer, during a mass shooting Monday inside a grocery store in Boulder, Colo., authorities said at a late press conference.
The officer was identified as Eric Talley, 51, who served on the force since 2010. He was the first officer at King Soopers, the crime scene, after the shooting occurred at about 2:30 p.m. His actions were called heroic.
Talley was the father of seven, his youngest seven years old, his father told the Denver Channel.
“He loved his kids and his family more than anything,” his father said.
The suspect, who was not identified, is receiving medical treatment. Officers had escorted a shirtless man with blood running down his leg out of the store in handcuffs but authorities would not say if he was the suspect.
We all know what’s about to come next.
