Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Boulder Shooting: Several People Killed at King Soopers in Colorado, Police Say” – below is their description.
A shooting at a Colorado supermarket killed multiple people Monday, including a police officer, and a suspect was in custody, authorities said.
Boulder police Cmdr. Kerry Yamaguchi said at a news conference that the suspect was getting medical treatment and there was no further threat to the public but didn’t give more details on the shooting or how many people were killed. Officers had escorted a shirtless man with blood running down his leg out of the store in handcuffs but authorities would not say if he was the suspect.
Investigators know how many people died, but their families were still being notified so the number of victims wasn’t being released yet, Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty said.
“This is a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder County, and in response, we have cooperation and assistance from local, state and federal authorities,” Dougherty said.
Yamaguchi said police were still investigating and didn’t have details on a motive for the shooting at the King Soopers store in Boulder, which is about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of Denver and home to the University of Colorado.
Dean Schiller told The Associated Press that he had just left the supermarket when he heard gunshots and saw three people lying face down, two in the parking lot and one near the doorway. He said he “couldn’t tell if they were breathing.”Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
