The suspected gunman who opened fire at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, Colo., killing 10 people including a police officer, has been identified as 21-year-old Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa.
Alissa is Muslim and his family emigrated to America in 2002 from Syria, and he has been charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder and one charge of attempted murder. Once named, much of the media cited Alissa’s brother to establish that he “may have been suffering from mental illness,” reporting that the motive behind the shooting was unclear.
As for narratives, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., a refugee from Somalia, responded to Alissa being named the shooter to essentially flip reality on its head and suggest that pushing narratives based on ethnicity is harmful.
