NEW YORK (AA): Ten people, including a police officer, died in an armed attack Monday on a supermarket in the US state of Colorado. Suspect is in custody.

The shooting occurred at a King Soopers supermarket in the city of Boulder, US media reported.

The police officer was killed when the attacker, a shirtless man, opened fire on officers who arrived at the scene.

“These were people going about their day, doing their shopping,” Boulder District Attorney Michael Dougherty said at a late-night press briefing. 

The police officer who died was identified as Eric Talley, 51, an 11-year veteran on the Boulder force. Talley was responding to the King Soopers grocery market when he was gunned down.

The injured attacker was taken into custody and was receiving medical treatment, said Boulder Police Commander Kerry Yamaguchi.

The identity of the attacker has not yet been released.

White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said on Twitter that President Joe Biden had been briefed on the shooting.

This shooting comes in the wake of another shooting six days ago when a gunman shot eight people at three day spas in the Atlanta area.
