Witnesses said they ran out of the building or hid as the shooting unfolded.
Sarah Moonshadow, a customer at the store, told Reuters she had tried to help a victim lying on the pavement outside the store, but her son– who she had been shopping with – pulled her away.
“We were at the checkout, and shots just started going off,” she said. “I couldn’t help anybody.”
Soon, authorities gathered outside the building and used a loudspeaker to shout “you need to surrender” at the suspect.
An hour long standoff ensued until officers escorted a shirtless bearded man out of the store with handcuffs. They did not confirm if he was the suspect.
Police have said the investigation is complex and that it will take at least five days to complete.
How many died?
In total, 10 people were killed by the gunman. The victims were aged between 20 and 65.
Who were the victims?
Among the dead was 51-year-old Eric Talley, the first police offer to respond to the shooting. He had been with the Boulder police force since 2010 and his father said he had been looking for a new job as a drone operator. His actions were “nothing short of heroic,” the Boulder police chief said.
