1. I haven't been paying much attention to the news, please tell me that it wasn't because he

wasn't wearing a mask.

3. Half of those said to be killed ...

Can be seen in first few minutes of this livestream started as soon as the shooting started.



Citizen journalist was at entrance when things went down. One (a woman i think) was down at an entrance ramp, one (looked like a male) down at the top of the parking rows just as they meet the road that goes by the storefront. The journalist popped his head into the store, & saw another male wearing a blue apron (I think, an employee if so) down by the cart return. No blood visible (as the outside victims were wearing winter gear), but they are heartbreakingly still. The journalist then wisely backed out, telling his viewers about an active shooter inside the King Soopers, i think, to encourage them to call authorities. He did a lap around the building, then started moving back as leos arived.

I only watched the first 45ish minutes of a 4 hour stream. When i had to stop, a boulder fire engine had just used it's basket to deposit a number swat onto the roof, as more leos were massing at the front.

5. On the late news, the death toll was up to nine, with ten shot...

And then I saw a bunch of news stories in a Google search saying the death toll was ten.

I watched most of the live stream and it's chilling at times. Especially the start where he shows the bodies in the parking lot and you can hear gun shots inside the store.

It also shows the cuffed suspect being led away by the police.

8. A break, yes. Or, to collect the wounded and dead from the field of battle.
