At least 10 people, including a Boulder police officer, were killed in a shooting at a supermarket in Boulder city of Colorado, authorities said Monday (local times).

A suspect is in custody, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said.

"Our hearts go out to all families impacted. There are 10 fatalities. She (Herold) identified slain Police Officer Eric Talley, who was one of the first on the scene. She calls officer's actions 'heroic.'," Boulder Police Department tweeted.
