The Colorado mass shooting suspect will appear in court on Thursday
The 21-year-old suspect in this week's mass shooting in Colorado will appear for the first time in court Thursday, three days after authorities said he opened fire in a supermarket and killed 10 people, including a police officer.
Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa faces 10 counts of murder and one count of attempted murder stemming from the riots on Monday at the King Soopers grocery store in the Table Mesa section of Boulder, about 28 miles (45 km) northwest of Denver. He will appear in Boulder County Courthouse at 8:15 a.m. (1415 GMT), according to court records.
The massacre was the second mass shooting in the country in a week, after another gunman killed eight people at health resorts for three days in the Atlanta area on March 16.
Police have not yet publicly identified the motive for the killings. Alissa's 34-year-old brother described him as antisocial and paranoid in an interview with the Daily Beast.
