A gunman shot and killed ten people, including the first police officer who responded, at a Boulder, Colorado, King Soopers supermarket on Monday at 2:30 pm. The assailant was wounded on the scene and taken into custody, neither name of the shooter nor details about the mass shooting have yet been revealed. This was the seventh mass shooting in seven days in the United States.

"These were people going about their day, doing their shopping and their lives were cut abruptly short and tragically short by the shooter who is now in custody," Michael Dougherty, the district attorney for Boulder County, said at a news conference. "I hope that people of this country send the families of the loved ones their thoughts and prayers. But from my perspective, there's more for us to do than give them thoughts and prayers. We're going to go all out to ensure the right result is reached."
