Boulder shooting suspect charged with 10 counts of murder

The suspect in Monday’s mass shooting at a Boulder, Colorado grocery store has been charged.

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, of Arvada, Colorado, is facing 10 counts of first-degree murder for the monstrous massacre, The Hill reported.

Rampage ends in surrender to police

Alissa is accused of opening fire inside of a Kings Soopers some 30 miles from Arvada. The rampage, which started around 2:30 p.m, lasted an hour, The Denver Post reported. The shooter surrendered to police with a bloody leg following a gunfight, and was jailed Tuesday after a hospital visit.

He is accused of having killed 10 people ranging in age from 20 to 65, including a police officer and father of seven who was the first to respond to the shooting, Eric Talley, 51.

“He died charging into the line of fire to save people who were simply trying to live their lives and go food shopping, and the man who gunned them down will be held fully responsible,” said Michael Dougherty, the Boulder County District Attorney, at a Tuesday press conference.

The victims are: Talley; Denny Stong, 20; Neven Stanisic, 23; Rikki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Teri Leiker, 51; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; and Jody Waters, 65.

No motive, as sketch emerges of suspect

As America grieves the victims, it is still not clear what prompted this senseless violence. The police have not commented on a motive yet, but a sketch has emerged from the suspect’s brother and former high school classmates of a disturbed loner with a violent temper.

Alissa, who migrated from Syria as a child, complained on Facebook about not being able to find a girlfriend and was described by those who know him as paranoid about being profiled for his Muslim background. “He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up,” said a former wrestling teammate, Dayton Marvel.

In 2018, he was convicted for assault after attacking a classmate who had called him “racial names.” He also complained about Donald Trump and “Islamophobia” online, and was reportedly known to the FBI, the Daily Mail reported.

Suspect will be in court tomorrow

Alissa will make his first appearance in court on Thursday.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis (D) vowed to “hold the evildoer responsible to the full extent of the law for his actions.”

Colorado abolished the death penalty in 2020.

  1. Bring back the DEATH Penalty for people who do this, and this may stop this from happening again. Are laws are to soft on the people who do this.

    1. A-man but so many califunny turds have infested that state they will give this terrorist a kiss and a pat on the back and release him most likely.

  3. No death penalty so no REAL payment for taking the lives of 10 people for no reason. If he had mental trouble then why did his family not do something to help him? The blood of these 10 are on the hands of the parents and every bleeding heart in congress and CO. leadership. Seams the full extent of the law is a slap on the wrist and everything paid for by ” WE THE PEOPLE”.

  4. He will be a vote for democrats. They want criminals to vote. Colorado has been a hell hole. Was a great state but democrats from California came in and took over with their stupid ideas they claim why they left California. Drugs, lying cheating democrats never do anything with out thinking about power. Don’t care about the American people.

  5. Let’s get it right here = a non white person killed 10 white people including one police officer. However I do not hear the left calling this a hate crime which meets their definition since the victims were all white and the gunman was not .This is what they did when 6 Asians were killed along with 2 white people and an injured Hispanic man. It is time to put Opinion ONLY labels on the Mainstream Media caption screens for their well documented bias against Republican and Conservatives as recently verified by a judge. This is not news and people should be aware that they are watching talking head opinions.

  6. They will blame in on Trimp as ususl. More gun laws like the dems want will NEVER stop this type of crime. One only has to watch TV, go to the theater or watch the videos with all the hate and violdnce to see the reason for all this violence. And once again the useless FBI knew of the creep.

  7. I doubt little will be done by Colorado. They’ll probably give him a medal for keeping the chaos stirred up.

  8. He should receive the death penalty. He murdered innocent people and a police officer. In my book that is a capital offense. Didn’t President Thomas Jefferson warn us to NEVER allow Muslims into this country? Remember 9-11? Also remember that in that culture women are considered to be property and have NO rights!!!!!

  9. Stop gun violence by screening those wanting into our country more carefully. This guy was obviously significantly unbalanced and should never have been allowed into our country let alone allowed to purchase a weapon or ammunition. No form of gun control will stop this kind of violence by nut cases such as this guy.

  10. Some valid points made. Yes this type of crime should carry the death penalty. But not 10–20–30–years from now. When the Judge slams the gavel down and says guilty, then it’s out the back door to the enclosed courtyard. Then the families of the victims sue the FBI, since they knew of him and his problems, yet he was still able to purchase a gun just six (6) days before his rampage.
