Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “LIVE: Boulder City Council Holds Special Meeting to Honor Shooting Victims” – below is their description.

(Mar. 24) Watch live as the Boulder City Council holds a special meeting to hear from the community and honor the victims of Monday’s shooting at a supermarket that left 10 people dead.

Police have identified a 21-year-old man as the suspect who opened fire on Monday. The suspect purchased the assault weapon used in the shooting just six days before, on March 16, according to the arrest affidavit released Tuesday.

The victims have been identified as Denny Stong, 20; Neven Stanisic, 23; Rikki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Teri Leiker, 51; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; and Jodi Waters, 65, and police officer Eric Talley, 51.

Monday’s attack was the seventh mass killing this year in the U.S., following the March 16 shooting that left eight people dead at three Atlanta-area massage businesses, according to a database compiled by the AP, USA Today and Northeastern University.

It follows a lull in mass killings during the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, which had the smallest number of such attacks in eight years, according to the database, which tracks mass killings defined as four or more dead, not including the shooter.

The Boulder and Atlanta-area shootings prompted President Joe Biden to call on Congress to tighten the nation’s gun laws. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed to bring forward two House-passed bills to require expanded background checks for gun buyers. Biden supports the measures, but they face a tougher route to passage in a closely divided Senate with a slim Democratic majority.
