After thousands of hours and over a hundred interview, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said on Friday that the motives of the Boulder King Soopers shooter remain unknown.
I guess they didn’t have a chance to look at his social media page before Facebook took it down.
Investigators have gathered more than 223 leads and conducted 156 interviews, totaling over 3,000 hours with the suspect.
Investigators so far have spent more than 3,000 total hours conducting 156 interviews and gathering more than 223 leads to unravel what might have motivated the suspect, 21-year-old Ahmad Alissa, to travel from Arvada to Boulder to open fire on shoppers and workers in the middle of a Monday afternoon.
“Like the rest of the community, we too want to know why. Why that King Soopers, why Boulder, why Monday?” Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said at a news conference Friday morning. “Unfortunately, at this time, we still don’t have those answers.”
It took journalists only a day to dig up the shooter’s history of anti-white hate, but the Boulder police can’t find a motive after 3,000 hours of interviews. This is what they want us to believe?
The suspect first appeared in court on Thursday. His next court date will be announced this week, said Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty.
“I want to make sure that the people of Boulder have the opportunity for this trial to be held and for justice to be done here in Boulder County,” Dougherty said.
