  Fierce Capitol attacks on police in newly released videos Videos released under court order provide a chilling new look at the chaos at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, including body camera footage that shows a man charging at a police officer with a flagpole and tackling him to the ground.

The 21-year-old suspect in Monday's massacre at a Colorado supermarket -- which left 10 dead including a store manager and a police officer -- faces 10 counts of murder in the first degree, police said Tuesday. "I also saw the gunman himself holding a semiautomatic rifle," and eventually he was " shooting rapid-fire" at something before entering the building, said Haynes, editor-in-chief of the University of Colorado 's CU Independent.

Boulder police officer among 10 shooting victims. The slain officer was identified as Eric Talley, 51, who had been with the police department since 2010, Herold said. He went to the store after a call about shots fired and someone carrying a rifle, she said.

Erin Morley, of Greely, was getting a tattoo to represent one of her young daughters when they heard a couple of gunshots.

"I looked outside and saw people running," Morley told NBC affiliate KUSA of Denver. They went in a little further, and a man who said he was there and saw a police officer shot came in, she said.

"It was pretty terrifying," she said. "It’s definitely not one of those things that you think is going to happen while you're just out shopping."

Arvada Mayor Marc Williams called Monday the saddest day for the city's police department. Gov. Jared Polis said in a statement that his thoughts were with the officer's friends and family.

A procession with a police escort was held for the officer and people lined the route, some with flags.

City Hall was closed Monday and would be closed again Tuesday to give space to the city's police department and other law enforcement agencies, the city said.

"It's a very sad, dark day," Williams said, according to KUSA.
