Why half naked?
Did the police rip off his Muslim garb? Is that why the shooter is half naked?
To be fair the police had to rip off his Muslim garments to make sure he was not hiding any more weapons under his Muslin garments.

The Police hold a second press conference and say nothing.
Two Press conferences and nothing is said.

Please understand we're in the very early stages of a very large investigation that is going to take some time. So we will not be able to answer a lot of your questions.
So with that, I'm going to turn it over to commander, Carrie Yamaguchi from the Boulder police department.
Cmdr. Yamaguchi: [00:01:11] good evening. Can everybody hear me? Okay. Uh, as, uh, Dion shared, uh, we had a very tragic incident today here at the King Soopers. Uh, there was loss of life. We have multiple, uh, people who were killed in this incident. And I am sorry to have to report that. One of them was a Boulder police officer. During this trying time, I would ask the media and the public to honor the privacy of the officer's family and his, uh, coworkers here at the police department.
I will also share that 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, without that quick response, we don't know. Um, if there would have been more loss of life I can share with the public today or this evening that there is no ongoing public threat that we do have a person of interest in custody.
That person was injured during the incident. And is being treated for the injuries.
DA Michael Dougherty: [00:02:47] Good evening. My name is Michael Doherty. I'm the district attorney for Boulder County. This is a tragedy and a nightmare for Boulder County and a response. We have cooperation and assistance from local state and federal authorities. This will very much be a coordinated effort.

It's a very early stage in the investigation as you've heard. And we have a lot of work to do, but we'll be giving out more information as that becomes available. And as we nail down the facts here, as commander Yamaguchi said, there is an individual in custody currently with multiple victims and we'll be doing everything we can to fight for them and their families make sure that we reached the right and just outcome.

We're going to be talking to the families first and then giving out more information. Okay. Well, Boulder police department is going to be giving out that information. I recognize the need to get the information out as soon as possible. I do, but I also recognize that we have one suspect in custody. We're going to ensure that justice is done and to do that.
We're going to make sure we have the facts certain and understood before we start sharing them with the media and the public that's going to happen. And that's going to happen in the next step. You're killing me
