BOULDER, Colo. (KKTV) - The man accused of killing 10 people in the March 2021 supermarket massacre has been found incompetent to stand trial for a second time.

Prosecutors had requested a second competency exam for Ahmad Alissa, 22, after he was found incompetent to stand trial in a previous exam that was filed on Oct. 5.

Alissa faces more than 100 charges and sentence enhancers — including first-degree murder, attempted murder and weapons counts — in connection with the fatal shootings of 10 people, including a police officer, in Boulder’s southside King Soopers on March 22.

It was announced earlier this week the grocery store where the shooting was carried out would reopen on Jan. 20, 2022.

District Attorney Michael Dougherty requested the suspect be sent to Colorado’s state mental hospital for treatment.
