Ten people, including a police officer, were shot dead at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday. This is the second mass shooting in the United States in a week.

“It’s a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder County,” said Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dogerti. “These are the people who were shopping and spending the day. I promise the victims and the people of Colorado that we will ensure justice.

Who was affected?
Boulder Police Officer-in-Charge Maris Harold said the slain police officer was identified as Eric Telly, 51, who had been with Boulder police since 2010. He said he went to the store after firing and calling someone with a rifle.
He was one of the best officers of the Boulder Police in all accounts and his life was also very short, Doherty said of Tally.
Dozens of police and emergency vehicles turned on the flashing lights and took an ambulance with police officers from the scene of the shooting just after dawn. Some residents were standing along the path and their weapons were raised in honor.
At the end of Monday, police still notified the family, so the identities of the other nine victims were not disclosed.
What was the motive behind the deadly attack?
Police could not immediately provide information about the possible motive for the riot and the shooter could not identify any of his victims or whether he had anything to do with the store.
It is also not clear if the attack began in the store or parking lot, where eyewitnesses said they were looking at the victims.
James Benz, who was shopping at the market, told The Denver Post that he and others rushed to the door when the gun sounded. “I was in front of the stampede,” he said.
