The man who's accused of killing ten people inside a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday has been identified as 21-year-old Ahmad Alyssa of Arvada, Colorado, Mediaite reports. He has been charged with ten counts of first-degree murder.

"Police, who announced the charges in a Tuesday press conference, said the suspect was armed with a rifle and was shot by police before he was arrested. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment, and is in stable condition. Police have yet to reveal any motive for the shooting," Mediaite's report stated.
