A senior law enforcement source told CNN the weapon used in the shooting was an AR-15 style rifle.
A witness who was in the store when the shooting started said, “This feels like the safest spot in America, and I just nearly got killed for getting a soda and a bag of chips.”
Overnight, Boulder District Attorney Michael Dougherty described the day’s events as “a tragedy and a nightmare.”
