Colorado incident is seventh mass shooting in US in past 7 days

Monday’s mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, comes less than a week after eight people were killed in a series of attacks on spas in Atlanta.

The two incidents are likely to spur discussion about gun control legislation in the United States, where firearm deaths are tragically common. They are also among at least seven mass shootings in the past week across the US – including three incidents on Saturday alone.

Atlanta, March 16: Eight people, including six Asian women, were killed when a White gunman stormed three spas, police said. Stockton, California, March 17: Five people who were preparing a vigil in Stockton, in California’s Central Valley, were shot in a drive-by shooting, the San Joaquin Sheriff’s Department said. None had life-threatening injuries. Gresham, Oregon, March 18: Four victims were taken to the hospital after a shooting in the city east of Portland, police said in an initial report on Twitter. Houston, March 20: Five people were shot after a disturbance inside a club, according to police. One was in critical condition after being shot in the neck, the rest were in stable condition, according to CNN affiliate KPRC. Dallas, March 20: Eight people were shot by an unknown assailant, one of whom died, according to police. Philadelphia, March 20: One person was killed and another five were injured during a shooting at an illegal party, CNN affiliate KYW reported. “There were at least 150 people in there that fled and believed they had to flee for their lives,” Philadelphia Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw said. Boulder, Colorado, March 22: Ten people, including a Boulder police officer, were killed in a shooting at the King Soopers supermarket, according to police.

It’s unclear how this number of mass shootings – in which at least four people were shot – compares to an average week in the US.

Though some official gun violence data is available, the US federal government does not have a centralized system or database to track firearm incidents and mass shootings nationwide. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which tracks some gun violence data, nearly 40,000 people were killed in incidents involving firearms in 2019.

So far this year, there have been at least six mass shootings with four or more killed, including those in Atlanta and Boulder.

These are the other four:

Jan. 9: Five killed in shooting spree in Evanston, Illinois, according to CNN affiliate WLS. Jan. 24: Five people shot dead in Indianapolis, Indiana, according to police. Feb. 2: Six people killed in Muskogee, Oklahoma. March 13: Four killed in dispute over stimulus check in Indianapolis.

Police officer Eric Talley.

The father of slain Boulder police officer Eric Talley said he was not surprised his son was the first officer to arrive on the scene of a mass shooting on Monday in Boulder, Colorado.

“Didn’t surprise me he was the first one there,” Homer Talley said in a phone interview with CNN affiliate KUSA.

Eric Talley, 51, was among 10 people killed when a gunman attacked the King Soopers grocery store. Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said his actions were “nothing short of heroic.” Herold said Talley had been an officer with the Boulder Police Department since 2010.

Homer Talley said his son was a father of seven children. The eldest is age 20.

Homer Talley described his son as a “prankster” who “had a great sense of humor.” He also said Eric Talley was working to become a drone operator because he thought it would be safer.

Survivor recounts harrowing scene as he and other customers ran for their lives

A survivor of Monday’s mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado said he feels a “profound sense of luckiness.”

Ryan Borowski told CNN’s Don Lemon he was still processing what happened. He just went to the grocery store to buy some ice cream, he said. Borowski said he changed his mind at the last minute and went down a different aisle. He then heard the first shots, after which he started running to the back of the store.

He and several others rushed out of the store through the back, telling employees who had no idea what was going on: “Gun, gun, gun. Run, run, run.”

Former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is seen before her husband Sen. Mark Kelly was sworn into Senate in the Capitol on Wednesday, December 2, 2020. 

Former Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, a gun control advocate and mass shooting survivor, said Monday’s shooting in Colorado was yet another reminder that “It’s beyond time for our leaders to take action” to address gun control.

Giffords was shot in the head in 2011 when a gunman opened fire at an event in Tuscon, Arizona, while the former US Representative was speaking with her constituents. Giffords survived, but six people were killed.

“This is an especially personal tragedy for me. I survived a shooting at a grocery store, in a tragedy that devastated my beloved community of Tucson. It’s been 10 years, and countless American communities have had to face something similar,” she said. “Today it’s a tragedy in Boulder, Colorado. This past weekend it was a house party in Philadelphia. And last week it was an armed attack on Asian American women in the Atlanta area.”

Investigation into Colorado shooting will take at least 5 days, police chief says

Nearby Boulder business owner says "this shouldn't have to happen in America"

Kevin Daly.

Kevin Daly, an area business owner who helped people escape the shooting at King Soopers grocery store, said he has never seen anything like this happen in the Boulder community.

“We are a loving, hippie community that believes in kindness,” he told CNN on Monday.

“It’s one of those things where you think about everything you can do better. We’re not really trained for this,” Daly added.

Daly was at his restaurant, which is located a “few hundred feet” away from the supermarket, getting ready to reopen after being closed because of the pandemic when he looked out the window.

He said he saw a “ton of police just pulling in really quickly.”

That’s when he called his staff and told them to shelter in place.

People seen lying on the ground in eyewitness video of Colorado shooting

Video taken by an eyewitness to the Boulder, Colorado, supermarket shooting appears to show people lying on the ground inside and outside the store, and purported gunshots are heard.

The video, taken by Dean Schiller, is part of a longer live stream that he took as the shooting progressed and police arrived. 

In the excerpt, Schiller is heard calling out saying that people need to call 9-1-1. 

“We don’t know if there’s a shooter — active shooter, active shooter somewhere,” Schiller said in the video. 

Schiller is heard on the video asking what appears to be a store employee whether a shooter went into the store.

Here’s how that conversation played out:

“Yeah, he went in there,” the man responded.
“He went in the store?” Schiller asked.
“He went right down there,” the man responds. 
“Oh my god,” Schiller reacts. “People we got people down inside Kings Soopers.”
Schiller then says, “Look there’s-,” but doesn’t finish his sentence as two gunshots stop his speaking.

Some background: Boulder Police had tweeted earlier on Monday there was an, “Active Shooter at the King Soopers on Table Mesa. AVOID THE AREA.”

CNN affiliate KMGH’s helicopter recorded a shirtless man being taken from the supermarket. The man had what appears to be blood on his arm and right leg and his hands appeared to be cuffed behind him as two officers escorted him away. The man was taken away in an ambulance.

Shooting witness says some people ran, others froze

Ryan Borowski.

Ryan Borowski, one of the people inside the King Soopers grocery store when a shooter starting firing shots, said everyone helped each other get out of the back of the store.

He said he heard two loud sounds, and by the third one, he and the people around him realized they were gunshots. He said they started running to the back of the store and employees helped them out the back door.

“We told employees what was going on so everybody helped each other and we just ran to safety as quickly as we could,” Borowski told CNN from behind the store in Boulder, Colorado, about two hours after the shooting.

Borowski said he was going to get ice cream, but then changed his mind and started walking the other way.

“I didn’t see the shooter. I saw terrified faces running towards me and that’s when I turned and ran the other direction,” he said.

He said everyone was helping each other, but while some people ran, others froze.

“We ran and I don’t know why other people didn’t and I am sorry that they froze and I just wish that this didn’t happen – I wish I had an answer for why it did,” he said.

He said he could have never imagined a situation like this happening in Boulder.

“Boulder feels like a bubble and the bubble burst and that’s heartbreaking. To think that people died today,” Borowski said. Police have not confirmed whether anyone was killed.

“This feels like the safest spot in America and I just nearly got killed for getting a soda, you know, and a bag of chips. Doesn’t feel good,” he added.

Man says his family members hid inside a closet for an hour

CNN affiliate KCNC reporter Conor McCue spoke with a man whose family was inside the King Soopers pharmacy to get a Covid-19 vaccine when the shooter arrived. He said they hid in a closet for an hour before being rescued through the roof.

“I got the call from my daughter and my grandchildren that my son-in-law walked into the pharmacy for him to get a Covid-19 shot and the shooter came in, shot the woman in front of them,” the man told KCNC.

“They hid, ran upstairs, were hiding in a coat closet for the last hour,” he said. “They are okay. They just are now out the back,” he added.

He said his daughter was texting him from the closet, before turning her phone off.

“They were texting, hiding in the coat closet. Turned their phone off and were going ‘we’re hiding, we’re okay’ you know, ‘don’t call’ you know the phone would ring and give away their position,” he said.

Boulder Community Health has one patient

Boulder Community Health says they have had one patient transported to their facility from the shooting at King Soopers, Rich Sheehan, a spokesperson with Boulder Community Health, told CNN.

Boulder mayor says no words can describe "the tragedy" that is unfolding

Boulder, Colorado, Mayor Sam Weaver thanked police officers and first responders at the scene of an active shooter, saying “words can do no justice to the tragedy that has unfolded this afternoon.”

“Our community will soon grieve our losses, and begin our healing. Our brave police officers and first responders have the gratitude of our entire city,” Weaver said in a tweet on Monday.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said earlier that he is “closely watching” as events unfold.

Boulder police say the scene is still “very active,” but we do not know a lot of information about what happened – including the conditions of people inside the store.

Boulder police urge people to stay away

Boulder police are urging people to stay inside because the scene at King Soopers is still “very active” as they respond to reports of an active shooter.

“Please avoid the area of Table Mesa & Broadway! This is still a very active scene,” Boulder police tweeted moments ago. “Do NOT broadcast on social media any tactical information you might see.”

CNN affiliate KMGH’s helicopter also filmed several people led away from the King Soopers store by police. SWAT vehicles were also seen moving about, and multiple officers were in tactical positions around the store’s exterior.

Police were also seen moving on the roof of the store, the purposes for the roof movements are unclear.

Witness describes scene inside supermarket: "Everybody was running"

An eyewitness told CNN affiliate KCNC he was inside the King Sooper grocery store at the time of the shooting.

He described an urgent, but orderly escape from the store.

He told KCNC: “We weren’t tripping over each other, but we were single file just you know, somebody had their hand on my back, I had my hand on somebody’s back, and we were just saying go, go, go, run.”

The witness told the TV station that he went to the store to grab a soda and chips, when he heard “one loud bang, thought somebody just dropped something an employee or something, and then another, and then by the third one, everybody was running.”

Police are likely securing the building right now, former law enforcement officials say

Phil Mudd, a former FBI senior intelligence adviser, said at this point in the investigation, police are concerned with two primary things: Making sure the building is secure and finding the shooter, or shooters.

“Right now, you’ve got to ensure this is the only person – if they picked up something already – and that the facility is secure,” he told CNN on Monday as law enforcement are responding to the situation.

He said this is not an easy task, and it will take time to make sure it is safe.

“In a building of that size, that you can clear the building and guarantee that nobody else is in there, think about every storage component in that building, every refrigerated room. It will take a while to clear it,” Mudd said.

Charles Ramsey, a former Philadelphia police commissioner, said officials need to make sure the building is secure before releasing more information.

“They may give some preliminary information, but it won’t be much. It will be pretty sketchy at this point in time. These scenes are very chaotic in the early stages. So it’s got to settle down,” he said.

“Number one is clear the scene, make sure you eliminate whatever threat may be there and that that building is totally secure,” Ramsey added.
