BOULDER, Colo. (KKTV) - The Boulder Police Department held a press conference Friday morning to give an update on the investigation into the shooting at a Boulder King Soopers that left 10 people dead.

26 law enforcement agencies have been working around the clock to gather more information about the shooting, which includes 167 individuals that have worked over 3,000 hours on this investigation to date.

Boulder Police say an officer exchanged gunfire with the suspect and has been put on administrative leave, which is routine in these types of cases. That officers name has not yet been released, but police did say that officer is an 11 year veteran. They were not injured in the shooting.

Boulder Police Chief Marris Herold says the firearm used by the suspect was a semi automatic pistol that was legally purchased at a gun store in Arvada, Colorado.

Boulder Police are working with the DA to charge suspect with 10 counts of 1st degree murder, and one for attempted 1st degree murder. Additional charges could be filed as the investigation continues. The next court date will reportedly be announced next week.
