The Boulder Supermarket mass shooter will be sent to a mental health facility after a judge ruled him Friday “mentally incompetent” to be tried.
Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa faces 10 counts of first-degree murder, 33 counts of attempted first-degree murder, and 10 counts of using a prohibited large-capacity magazine to commit the crimes in addition to one count of assault.
On March 22, he carried the mass shooting at the Boulder King Soopers. His family had previously asserted that he suffered “serious” mental issues but without elaborating.
District Attorney Michael Dougherty showed results of a second mental evaluation that confirmed the 22-year-old suspect is not currently fit to stand trial.
Judge Ingrid Bakke ruled Alissa be sent to an El Pueblo mental facility to receive treatment and set a March 15 hearing to evaluate his progress.
