VIDEOS: 10 Dead, Including Police Officer, in Shooting at Colorado Supermarket

At least 10 people are dead, including a police officer, after a shooting incident on Monday at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, a city about 25 miles northwest of Denver.

Video posted online appeared to show people on the floor inside the King Soopers store and two more outside on the ground, but the extent of their injuries wasn’t clear.

Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold announced at a press conference at 8:15 p.m. that Police Officer Eric Talley was among the fatalities. Talley, 51, was among the first responders on the scene. Herold called the officer’s actions “heroic.”

The names of other victims will not be released until their families have been notified. Herold said that she acknowledges there are families awaiting news of their loved ones.

“I am sensitive to that, and we will work around the clock to get this accomplished,” she said.

Boulder District Attorney Michael Doherty expressed condolences to all the victims, including Talley. “His life was cut much too short,” Doherty said, promising a “painstaking investigation.”

Boulder police commander Kerry Yamaguchi told a press conference earlier in the evening that one person of interest was taken into custody and was being treated at a hospital for his injuries.


Video footage showed officers escorting a shirtless man with blood running down his leg out of the store in handcuffs, before he was put on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance.

Doherty said that the man is the alleged shooter.

The incident drew a massive response from law enforcement, including multiple police vehicles, SWAT teams, and at least three helicopters were on the roof. The situation remained active more than two hours after the first reports of the incident, according to multiple reports.

Yamaguchi said the police department received a call about the incident just before 3 p.m.

He thanked the police response, including from Boulder law enforcement, the FBI, the ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives), and other Denver metro agencies.

“Without that quick response we don’t know if there would have been more loss of life,” he said.

He noted that authorities were processing the crime scene.

An incident at an apartment building three miles away turned out to be unrelated to the supermarket shooting, Yamaguchi added.

Doherty said there will be a coordinated response between local, state, and federal law enforcement. “This is a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder county,” he said, later adding, “we’ll stand united in support of the victims and their families to ensure that justice is done.”

Kelli McGannon, spokesperson for King Soopers, said the chain will defer all questions to law enforcement for the integrity of the investigation.

“Our hearts are broken over this senseless act of violence. The entire King Soopers family offers our thoughts, prayers, and support to our associates, our customers, and first responders who so bravely responded to these acts of violence,” she said at a press conference.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki wrote on Twitter that President Joe Biden was briefed on the shooting and “will be kept up to date by his team as there are additional developments.”

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis announced on Twitter, “My heart is breaking as we watch this unspeakable event unfold in our Boulder community. … I’m incredibly grateful to the brave men and women who have responded to the scene to help the victims of this senseless tragedy.”

At the time, he asked for patience from the public to allow local law enforcement to secure the site.

Congress

House passes the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act Wednesday night

The House passed the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act Wednesday night in a 220-212 vote, which included just one Republican vote. 

The far-reaching police reform bill was originally introduced in the House last summer, following the death of George Floyd, a black man, in Minneapolis last summer. Floyd was suspected of passing a $20 bill at a convenience store. A police officer, Derek Chauvin, knelt on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes as a way to immobilize him. He was pronounced dead at the hospital shortly afterwards. 

The bill would affect national policing standards in significant ways if it becomes law.

According to The Hill, “Racial profiling at every level of law enforcement would be prohibited; chokeholds, carotid holds and no-knock warrants would be banned at the federal level; qualified immunity for officers would be overhauled and a national police misconduct registry would be created so officers who were fired for such discretions could not be hired by another police department.”

Also, “Although the bill would not technically mandate the prohibition of certain reforms such as chokeholds at a state and local level, it would tie in the new federal standards as thresholds for police departments to meet if they wanted to continue receiving federal aid.”

The bill is expected to have a difficult time passing in the 50-50 Senate, where Sen. Tim Scott (S.C.), the only black Republican in the Senate, has introduced the JUSTICE Act, a different version of police reform.

“I hope my friends on the other side of the aisle will come to the table to find common ground where we can make meaningful changes that will bring us closer to the goal of a more just country,” Scott said.

Chauvin’s trial on second-degree murder and manslaughter charges is scheduled to begin next week.

U.S. Capitol Police bar reporter from bringing bullet-proof vests, gas masks and helmets to inauguration

U.S. Capitol Police is informing media outlets that reporters will not be allowed to bring bullet-proof vests, gas masks or helmets to President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration Wednesday, amid heightened concerns about violence in the wake of an attack on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob.

Reporters will not be allowed to bring this kind of protective equipment through any screening checkpoint around the Capitol’s extensive security perimeter, which stretches several blocks beyond the Capitol building itself in all directions.

The Capitol Police sent out to the guidance after a few reporters looked at possibly gearing up before Wednesday’s ceremony, in case there’s more violence.

The Capitol campus has begun to resemble a military base in a combat zone, with more than 21,000 National Guardsmen deployed around Washington ahead of Biden’s inauguration.

Hundreds of Guardsmen in combat fatigues, carrying packs and assault rifles, have been deployed behind tall fencing topped with razor wire set up around the historic Capitol building and the Senate and House office buildings.

The heavily-armed Guard units are also backing up U.S. Capitol police officers at the relatively few pedestrian and vehicular entrances around the Capitol campus.

The cafeteria on the basement level of the Dirksen Senate office building has been turned into a specially authorized break area for troops, with scores of them lined up against the walls, resting or taking naps. An area that used to be filled with staff and visitors hustling through to grab a quick bite or coffee now looks like below the deck of a troop transport ship.  

Former Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.), who was in the Capitol Tuesday, called the huge troop presence “overkill” as he headed to get a COVID-19 test before Tuesday’s inauguration.

He said the scene was “unlike anything I’ve seen” during his 24 hears in the House.
