King Soopers Shooting Suspect Using Insanity Defense, Trial Date Set

1 min read


The man accused of killing ten people at the Table Mesa King Soopers in Boulder is heading to trial after a preliminary hearing on Tuesday, November 14, ended with enough evidence being shown to allow the mass shooting case to go forward.

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, who is charged with more than 100 counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder and other various charges related to the 2021 massacre, entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity during the hearing in Boulder County District Court.

The case had been stalled for two years after Alissa was found mentally incompetent and put on the state’s backlog for restoration services because of delays at the Colorado Mental Health Hospital in Pueblo. Alissa, who has schizophrenia, was eventually found competent in October 2023.
