The suspect at the Boulder, Colorado grocery store, who killed 10 people, is due to appear in court for the first time Thursday. Hundreds of people gathered last night to mourn the victims and to support those affected by the senseless gun violence.

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, faces ten first-degree murders and one attempted murder in the terrible attack on a King Soopers supermarket. One of the victims was a police officer who responded to calls for help. The age of the deceased is between 20 and 65 years.

“The first degree murder charge could potentially result in life imprisonment without parole,” reports Colorado Public Radio. “Colorado abolished the death penalty last year.”

The alleged shooter comes from Arvada, a suburb between Denver and Boulder. Earlier this week, Alissa had a criminal record showing a guilty pledge on a 2018 misdemeanor charge. He paid a fine to resolve this case, according to court records.

Alissa surrendered to police after sustaining a gunshot wound to the leg. This “through and through” wound was treated in hospital before Alissa was sent to Boulder County Jail. He was taken into custody after removing most of his clothes – jeans, a long-sleeved shirt, and a tactical vest – and backing up to the police, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

Along with Alissa’s clothes, the police found “a rifle (possibly AR-15)” and a semi-automatic pistol, the court document said.

Alissa’s arrest warrant affidavit states that less than a week before the King Soopers shooting, he bought a gun, citing official databases showing that he bought one Ruger AR-556 on March 16.

The weapon used in shooting is legally classified as a “pistol” in the United States, but many people would likely do so Think of it as a gun – and the affidavit refers to it repeatedly. The gun shares the same bottom receiver, the clamshell-like part that houses the trigger, as AR-15 rifles that were used in many other mass shootings in the United States.

The Monday’s victim Shooting are: Denny Stong, 20; Nevin Stanisic, 23; Rikki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Suzanne Brunnen, 59; Teri Leiker, 51; Eric Talley, 51; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; Jody Waters, 65.
