The aunt of a Colorado victim killed during Monday’s store shooting massacre in Boulder took to Facebook to lash out at the suspected gunman, hours after pleading for her niece’s safety.
MailOnline reports that 25-year-old Rikki Olds was shot and killed inside a King Soopers supermarket in southern Boulder, along with nine others, on Monday afternoon. Shortly after learning about her niece’s death, Lori Olds took to social media.
“We lost our beloved Rikki Olds to the monster who shot up the king soopers in Boulder CO yesterday may his rotten ass fry and burn in hell…if i don’t kill him first.”
Thank you everyone for all your prayers but the Lord got a beautiful young angel yesterday at the hands of a deranged…
According to the Canon City Daily Record, Lori Olds said that her niece was a front-end store manager at King Soopers. She was reportedly an employee for several Soopers supermarkets in the area for almost five years.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, other victims of the shooting include Denny Strong, 20; Neven Stanisic, 23; Ricki Olds, 25; Tralona Bartkowiak, 49; Teri Leiker, 51; Suzanne Fountain, 59; Kevin Mahoney, 61; Lynn Murray, 62; and Jodi Waters, 65.
Boulder police officer Eric Talley, 51, also lost his life in the line of duty. He was one of the first officers at the scene and risked his life to save others, police said.
During Tuesday’s press conference, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold identified the suspected shooter as Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, from Arvada. He has reportedly lived in the United States for most of his life.
Officials said they believe Alissa will be discharged from the hospital and booked into jail later tonight. Aerial footage on Monday appeared to police escorting a bloody and shirtless man, presumably Alissa, from the King Soopers after the mass shooting.
Officials said some of the victims were gunned down while in line to receive their COVID shots. Despite this, the police chief said a motive remains unclear.
