The Return Of Mass Shootings In America


Ten people, including a police officer, were killed yesterday after a gunman opened fire in a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, shattering the calm for another US community.

The fatal shooting at the King Soopers store comes less than a week after another shooting attacks at three spas in the Atlanta area that left eight people dead.

A suspect is in custody, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said, but authorities did not share any information on his identity or on the type of weapon used or any possible motive.

Herold said the slain officer, 51-year-old Eric Talley, was one of the first officers to respond to the scene. Talley had joined the Boulder police force in 2010, she said.

Officials did not disclose the identity of any of the other victims, saying they needed to first notify family members.

The woman at the front of the line was shot, McHugh told CNN‘s Don Lemon. Paul grabbed the girls and hurried them upstairs to take cover in a coat closet above the pharmacy, he said. The girls said they were afraid because the coats weren’t long enough to hide their feet.

These shootings are likely re-ignite the debate over gun laws that has raged in the United States in recent years.
