At around 2:40 p.m. on March 22 the suspect walked into King Soopers at Table Mesa in South Boulder and opened fire. Witnesses said that he didn’t seem crazed, and said nothing, just aimed and shot them. A witness stated that he “didn’t say shit” and didn’t spray his bullets. It was a deliberate, calculated act.

Officer Eric Talley

It must be said that police officers are trained to run toward danger. As Boulder police responded to the report of the shooting, that is exactly what Officer Eric Talley did- he was the first to run toward the gunfire. He died doing his job.

He was the father of seven children, the youngest is only 7 years old. He was a member of the Boulder Police Department for just under 11 years. His father told reporters that Eric never wanted to put his family “through something like this.”


“He’s a very kind man, and he didn’t have to go into policing. He had a profession before this but he felt a higher calling. And he loved his community. He’s everything that policing deserves and needs. He was willing to die to protect others, and that gets lost in translation.”
