Boulder police hold news conference after supermarket shooting | USA TODAY 1


Ten people, including a police officer, were shot and killed at a Boulder, Colorado, supermarket on Monday, the second mass shooting in the U.S. in a week.

At a news conference late Monday, authorities said the assailant was wounded and in custody, receiving hospital treatment. Citing the ongoing investigation, authorities didn’t reveal his name or any details about the shooting.

“This is a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder County,” Boulder County District Attorney Michael 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.”

    • Two FACTS that the leftist media will not tell you…the guy has an Arab name, he’s not an angry white male, and this was a NO GUN zone, so the “victims” were unarmed!! Now the leftists have one more reason to disarm YOU while crime is going up and criminals will not obey the law!

      @Dead Brother I open carry and CCW, with my military background open carry isn’t an issue. But I can see where you’re coming from. It takes good situational awareness to open carry.

      @Edmund Dobry you’re right. And I dont disagree with your point, I’m just saying open carry is a mixed bag. Situational awareness is huge, because your weapon could be seized and used against you in like :02. But then concealed carry has drawbacks as well, such as holster to fire time being longer. Call or email your state senators to stop the disgusting gun control measures they are trying to pass.

      @Julian Gomez I don’t know what the hell is so funny?? What is you’re problem??? And why do you bring “white this? And white that”? And then you you want to further humiliate others with yourself and your hatred of whites. You, are the true disgrace and the problem here. And are you even an American citizen???

    When can the government stop demanding high efficiency washing machines they don’t clean… I don’t care about efficiency I care about clean clothes

  9. The media is pissed that this isn’t just a regular white guy it’s an Islamic guy

  10. Guns have 2 enemies. Rust & Politicians

      1. Divide america use race as it’s main focuse. Defund the police 2. Get in office 3. Propose assault weapons ban. 4. After mass shooting bolster police and turn you back on the people who got you there. 5. Pass bill in the senate. 6 well you know what happens after 6.

    • @dirty pricey ya no more weapons for you. Thank god.

      @MDSM Ok buddy

    • @MDSM how did that work out for prohibition! Hahahahaha the black market for guns is going to be huge if they take them away from law abiding citizens..

    • @J Mc ya you’re country is screwed. I’m glad I live in Canada. No one I know owns a gun, and we have minimal gun violence. I never have to worry about getting shot up leaving my house.

  11. How many people died when Joe Biden bombed Syria a few weeks ago?

  12. High capacity mags are illegal in CO. Why didn’t it prevent the shooting? Because gun control is about control. Not safety. People being able to defend themselves is safety.

    • Easy to shoot many people where very few citizens are ever armed…

    • How was this killer defending himself? From what?

    • Dead Brother | March 23, 2021 at 2:19 PM | Reply

      @L Cue I’m pretty sure he was the attacker. Dont be silly. So, if any the victims were armed, they would have been able to protect them selves. How long did it take for the officer who died in defense of the public to arrive? I’ll answer for you, long enough for someone to assess the threat, and put a stop to it. And for the record, millions of law abiding citizens would have done the same thing the officer did, sooner. If you think im wrong look up Colorado gun laws. See how much it helped? Not at all, in a democrat state, and city of boulder. Protect yourself. The government can’t.

      @L Cue hey L Cue, really quick- if no one was armed within 10 miles of that place how many people could the shooter kill?
      1:1 bullet to kill ratio if he’s a good shot…..
      10, 20, 30, 50, 100….depends on how much ammo he had right?
      Now let’s imagine every single person in that store was armed, and trained to use their weapon. How many?
      1,2,3,4,5? He would have been stopped MUCH faster. Anti weapon laws don’t keep people safe. They keep people fearful and dependent on the government. I can do this all day.

  13. Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa is the shooter’s name in case you couldn’t understand her mumbling through it so quickly.

    • She rambled through it so no one would hopefully notice.

    • Not really. …. I understood it fine. It’s just that she didn’t know how to say the last name so she spelled it out.

    • @cubonefan3 She spelled all the names out. Don’t be mad it was a Syrian Muslim and ISIS sympathizer who sought out only white victims.

    tragic but why do people apologize for other peoples actions Pray for those who lost someone this country needs so many prayers right now

    • jorge aldridge | March 23, 2021 at 1:33 PM | Reply

      Because it takes pressure of the accused innocent family known friends or race maybe even gender. Hell probably one day aliens will land and apologize for but probes 👽 nothing to do with us

      So true, hi

  15. Wondering if this will be categorized as a possible “terrorist attack” since I am seeing reports that the shooter is an ISIS sympathizer. Nothing is added to on the news about this.

  16. I haven’t heard anything about a hate crime yet what’s up?

  17. Wow they have to specify that he is “innocent unless proven guilty”?🤷 They hardly say that during a press conference for every suspect🙄

    This is a precursor to a new gun control bill.

    If he was white your would hear about it nonstop, since he was a Muslim it’s shhhhuuush!
    “News” media is horrible.

  20. too bad we don’t have the same anguish for those taken from womb
