10 people were killed, including a police officer, in a mass shooting at a grocery store in Boulder, Colorado. On Monday, Boulder Police were called to a King Soopers just before 3 p.m. local time after reports of shots fired.

Police confirmed the identity of the officer killed as 51-year-old Eric Talley, who joined the force in 2010. Authorities said the suspect was taken to the hospital and remains in police custody.

“We got tremendous support from our fellow law enforcement agencies, both in Boulder County, which some of them you see behind me, the FBI, ATF and other Denver-metro agencies,” Boulder Police Commander Kerry Yamaguchi said. “Without that quick response, we don’t know if there would have been more loss of life.”
