Every human life is precious and sacred and killing one is like triggering a genocide. (Al Quran 5:32/33)
(CNN) Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa was identified by authorities Tuesday as the gunman who opened fire at a King Soopers grocery store in Colorado, killing 10 people, including a Boulder police officer.
The name of the 21-year-old suspect, who is in custody, was released at a news conference by Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold, who did not disclose a possible motive for Monday’s bloodshed.
A search of the suspect’s suburban Denver home turned up other weapons, a senior law enforcement source said Tuesday. The weapon used in the attack was an AR-15-style pistol modified with an arm brace, according to the source.
Authorities believe Alissa was the only person involved and that there was no additional threat to the community.
