“I promise the victims and the people of Colorado that we will secure justice and do everything we must do to get justice in this case”
According to the Voice of America, Police in the U.S. city of Boulder, Colorado, confirmed 10 people killed on Monday in a shooting at a grocery store.
Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold stated that the dead included officer Eric Talley, who was the first to arrive at the scene after reports of gunfire. Herold called Talley’s actions “heroic.”
Herold told Newsmen at a nighttime briefing that one suspect was in custody, and that the investigation of the shootings was expected to take at least five days.
District Attorney Michael Dougherty said it was too early to speculate on a motive for the attack. He said Boulder “suffered a terrible and horrific mass shooting.”
“These people were going about their day, doing their food shopping, and their lives were cut abruptly and tragically short by the shooter who is now in custody,” Dougherty said. “I promise the victims and the people of Colorado that we will secure justice and do everything we must do to get justice in this case.”
Authorities said efforts to identify the other victims and notify their families were ongoing. (VOA)
