How to watch the Boulder shooting suspect’s first court appearance Thursday

The man suspected of shooting and killing 10 people at a Boulder King Soopers is scheduled to make his first appearance in court Thursday.

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, is expected to appear at 8:15 a.m. Thursday in front of Boulder District Court Judge Thomas Mulvahill.

During a first advisement, a judge typically reads the defendant his or her rights and advises the defendant on the crimes for which they are being investigated. A judge also can set bond, though Colorado judges often do not set bond for first-degree murder cases and instead hold defendants in jail throughout the legal process.

The defendant does not enter a plea at this stage in the process.

Prosecutors have not yet formally charged Alissa in connection to the shooting. He is being held in the Boulder County jail on suspicion of 10 counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder, according to online court records. He has also been assigned a public defender, the records show.

The hearing will be viewable online or can be listened to via a conference line. To watch online, go to judicial.webex.com/meet/thomas.mulvahill. To call into the conference line, dial 720-650-7664 and enter access code 921 389 808.
