Mass Shooting in Boulder Takes the Lives of at Least Six
Updated March 23, 2021; 0749 eastern.
A mass shooting in a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, has taken the lives of ten people. The tragic events come at the heels of another deadly shooting that took the lives of eight people in Atlanta, Georgia.
Although it is still too early to report on the details of the shooting and how it fits into the overall gun violence debate playing out across the nation, it appears that the shooting was perpetrated by a white male with the use of a semi-automatic rifle. A bloodied person of interest was taken into custody by Boulder police.
Among the ten victims was a Boulder city police officer who has been identified as Eric Talley, 51, the father of seven children. Mr. Talley was the first at the scene, rushing in to provide assistance.
The detainee, a person the police is calling a person of interest is injured and is being treated at a local hospital.
