Colorado supermarket shooter identified; motive for 10 slayings unclear

 Police on Tuesday identified the 21-year-old suspect accused of killing 10 people - including a policeman - in a hail of bullets at a Colorado supermarket, marking the United States' second mass shooting in a week and adding to the state's tragic history of deadly massacres.


The suspect, Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa of Arvada, Colorado, had an assault rifle, a handgun and a tactical vest, all of which were recovered at the King Soopers outlet in Boulder, according to an arrest affidavit filed by police.

Alissa was in stable condition after suffering a leg wound in an exchange of gunfire with responding police officers inside the store, about 28 miles (45 km) northwest of Denver, on Monday afternoon. Authorities said they were confident he had acted alone, though they did not offer any details on what might have motivated his actions.
