    Monday's shooting in Boulder horrified locals. The state of Colorado has a long history with mass killings, but this time the incident took place less than a week after another eight people were killed in Atlanta, magnifying a nationwide fear among people in the US about gun violence.

    Sputnik is live from Boulder, Colorado where a major shooting incident left 10 people dead, including one police officer on Monday.

    The gunman opened fire at around 2:30 p.m. local time. Reportedly armed with a rifle, the suspect fatally shot a police officer, Eric Talley, who served on the force for roughly 10 years and was a father of seven children. The identities of the other victims will be disclosed after family members have been notified.
