Police say that Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, of Arvada, has been identified as the suspect in the Boulder King Soopers shooting that left ten people dead.
Colorado cops revealed that Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa is facing ten counts of first-degree murder and is currently awaiting transfer to Boulder County jail.
The alleged mass murderer, also known as Ahmad Alissa, posted photos that gave an insight into his life and spoke freely about his likes and dislikes on some of his social media accounts.
In 2019, he shared an anti-gay Facebook post and penned a lengthy message praising refugees.
The same year, he posted an odd message where he more or less indicated that he was struggling with mental health issues, including paranoia.

His family did release a statement confirming that he was mentally unstable. A family member told NBC: “He suffered from some fairly severe mental problems… paranoia thought people were always chasing him.”
Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa confessed via Facebook that he was eager to find a girlfriend.
He posted numerous photos that have been reposted on Instagram where he is spending quality time with a little boy — it is not known if he is the father of the child.
Boulder Police Chief Maris Harold has also released the names of the victims.
Here are the names of the victims:
Denny Strong, 20

Kevin Mahoney, 61
Lynn Murray, 62

Ofc. Eric Talley, 51
Eric Talley, a courageous and heroic police officer, who was the first to respond to reports of an armed attacker at a grocery store in Colorado on Monday, has been identified as one of ten victims of the fatal shooting.
Eric Talley, 51, was a father to seven children and has been hailed a hero by many and described by his father as a “prankster” with a great sense of humor and who “loved his family more than anything.”
He was fatally shot after he was first on the scene responding to a call at around 2:30 p.m. on Monday that somebody was using a gun at the King Soopers store in Boulder.

Talley had been serving in the police department for more than ten years, where he worked in different roles and wanted to stay away from “the front lines,” according to his father, after serving in the military.
Speaking about his lost colleague at a press briefing on Monday night, police chief Maris Herold said that Officer Talley was “outstanding… by all accounts.”
Eric’s father, Homer Talley, said he was not surprised to hear his son had been the first on the scene since he took his job “very seriously.”
He entered the police force at the age of 40 and left behind seven children — the youngest being seven years old.
Officer Talley was one of the police officials in a video that went viral in 2013, showing a group of cops trying to rescue some stranded ducklings from almost knee-deep water, showing his kind and caring nature.
The first police officer to die on duty since 1994, Eric Talley, received an honorable send-off from his colleagues at the Boulder Police Department, who lined the streets to salute him as his body was carried in an ambulance.
