Boulder officer Will Not face charges for shooting Defendant in Supermarket Shop massacre: DA

Ten individuals, including an officer, had been gunned down in the shop in March.

Alissa supposedly started shooting at the supermarket parking lot prior to running indoors and opening fire, according to prosecutors. The initial officers arrived within minutes and moved to the shop, where Boulder police officer Eric Talley was captured and murdered, according to prosecutors.

Boulder officer Richard Steidell -- who captured and wounded Alissa -- stated he arrived at the scenehe saw two sufferers dead out, and if he and his fellow officers moved inside the King Soopershe watched Talley with catastrophic accidents, according to a report published Thursday from Dougherty.

Since Steidell approached Talley, he said he saw somebody with a long gun directed at the officers,'' the report stated. At least two rounds were subsequently fired at the officers, '' the report stated.

When the defendant moved into Steidell's perspective, the officer said he fired roughly five to ten rounds, '' the report stated. Investigators later decided Steidell fired eight shots, '' the report stated.

Steidell was"completely justified in using deadly physical force" since he knew the defendant"posed a direct danger to himself, his fellow officers, and civilians still in the shop," Dougherty's report stated.

"And, since Steidell fired down a vacant cart and toward the rear wall of the shop, his use of force failed to create a considerable threat of injury" to individuals aside from Alissa, '' the report included.

Charges against Alissa comprise 10 counts of first-degree murder along with several counts of attempted murder. He hasn't entered a plea.
