He is accused of shooting 10 people to death in cold blood in Boulder, Colorado, in broad daylight, but when arresting officers began questioning him, he refused to answer them and wanted to speak to his mother.
A police affidavit describes the behavior of Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the suspect in Monday’s grocery store massacre, when police detained him while wearing nothing but boxer shorts and bleeding from a gunshot wound.
“The suspect did not answer questions, although he asked to speak to his mother,” the affidavit said.
Also during the investigation, her sister-in-law was interviewed by police and told them that Alissa, who weighs more than 200 pounds, usually wears a medium-size T-shirt and “looks like she has a beer belly or is pregnant.” “

Alissa allegedly rampaged through the King Soopers grocery store on Table Mesa Drive in Boulder and opened fire on responding officers, fatally hitting police officer Eric Talley in the head, according to investigators.
Before surrendering to the SWAT team operators, he stripped naked and was left with only his underpants, police said, and had visible blood on his right leg. The surrender was captured on video from numerous angles on the ground and from aerial cameras.
Later, authorities found a gunshot wound to the thigh.
