Former students said Tuesday that an Arvada man named Ahmad Alissa his full name is Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa Alissaarrested in Monday’s mass shooting at a Boulder King Sooper’s was violent, short-tempered, and paranoid in high school.
According to law enforcement, Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa is accused of killing ten people at the grocery store on Monday when he went in around 2:30 p.m. and started shooting. With a gunshot wound in his shoulder, he was taken into custody about an hour later.
Alissa was taken to the hospital for treatment and will be taken to the Boulder County Jail on Tuesday to face ten counts of first-degree murder.
In a recent development that sheds more light on Alissa, a Conan Daily article examined his past, where he referred to himself as a wrestler and spoke of making the world a better place. Computer engineering, computer science, and kickboxing were among his other passions.
This new information provides more information about Alissa’s life before the shooting. According to a Westworld dispatch, “Judging from his posts, Alissa appears to be a fan of mixed martial arts as well as other athletic endeavors. A photo from April 2016 shows him walking on a wrestling mat while wearing an Arvada West uniform.”
Alissa described himself as a 138-pound wrestler “trying to make the world a better place,” according to Conan Daily. Conrad, Alissa’s former wrestling teammate, told The Daily Beast that the charges against her shocked him. He did, however, admit to having a fiery temper.
Then there’s the history of violence. We previously reported on Alissa’s brother referring to him as “paranoid.” According to a 2017 police report, Ahmad became so enraged by alleged ongoing bullying at school that he violently assaulted another student, Alex Kimo’s. The right side of his face was red and swollen after the attack.
Kimose’s eye was partly closed as a result of the attack’s violence, and he was left bleeding from his nose and mouth.
Meanwhile, all of the shooters’ victims have been identified.
