BOULDER, Colo. – On Monday afternoon, 21-year-old Syrian immigrant Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa killed ten people in a Boulder Colorado supermarket. His Facebook page has since been scrubbed, but postings shared online show that he was anti-Trump, pro-immigration and pro-Muslim.
In one post, Al Aliwi Alissa said racist Islamophobic people were hacking his phone and he could not have a normal life because of it. He also blamed former President Trump for unemployment, a bad economy and an increase in racism, saying Trump won his election because of racism.
As the investigation continues, the Boulder Police Department has identified and removed all of the victims from the supermarket.
