How old is Rikki Olds?
Rikki Olds of Lafayette was killed Monday afternoon in the shooting at a King Soopers location in South Boulder. This is evident in online messages from family members.
“We lost our beloved Rikki Olds to the monster that slaughtered King Sooper yesterday in Boulder CO, so her lazy donkey roasts and burns in hell,” her aunt Lori Olds wrote on Facebook.
Police said the unidentified shooter who was injured in the shooting is now in custody.
The motive for the attack was not disclosed.
Police have officially identified only one of the 10 victims, Officer Eric Talley.
Talley, 51, who had been with Boulder police since 2010, was the first officer to respond to a report of shooting and someone with a weapon, authorities said.
“Obviously he was one of the most distinguished officers in the Boulder Police Department, and his life was too short,” said Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty.
Meanwhile, other panicked family members became concerned Monday night as they waited for news of their loved ones.
Rikki’s uncle, Bob Olds, urged authorities to provide answers early Tuesday.
“Rip Officer Talley … and thanks for being in danger and saving lives, but what about the rest of us sitting on the phone waiting for a notification?” he wrote on Twitter.
“Please tell me my niece isn’t on that damn concrete floor yet @boulderpolice and the Boulder County Coroner … where are the answers?” He continued.
In an update more than 12 hours after the shooting, authorities confirmed her worst fears.
“Well, I am very sad to report that we finally found out that my niece left this world to join her papaya in paradise … fly free and rest my dear niece,” he wrote.
