A total of 10 people were killed, including a police officer, after a gunman opened fire at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, Monday afternoon, police said.

The officer has been identified by police as Eric Talley, 51. He had been a part of Boulder Police Department since 2010.

A law enforcement source told ABC News officers initially responded to a report of someone being shot in the parking lot of the store, and when they arrived at the scene, a suspect carrying a long gun opened fire on them. Talley was the first officer to arrive at the scene, where he was fatally shot.

A suspect was wounded during the confrontation with police and taken into custody, according to Boulder Police Department Commander Kerry Yamaguchi.

“Our hearts … go out to the victims of this horrific incident,” said Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold at a Monday night news conference, praising Talley for his “heroic action” in responding to the incident after the police department received phone calls of shots fired and of a “possible person with a patrol rifle.”

“Officer Talley responded to the scene, was first on the scene, and he was fatally shot,” Herold said.
