Rikki Olds was a vivacious, strong, and independent young woman who worked as a front-end manager at a King Soopers grocery store.

She was 25 years old.
Rikki Olds Boulder Shooting Victim
On Monday, after a shooting rampage at the supermarket, her family panicked when they couldn’t reach her.
“We had to wait and agonize over her fate for several hours,” Bob Olds said.
“After calls to the police department and every local hospital and the coroner’s office, we finally received a call back from the coroner’s office.”
Olds was one of 10 victims inexplicably gunned down at the grocery store in Boulder, Colorado.
The first police officer to arrive on the scene, Eric Talley, was among those killed, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said.
Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, the 21-year-old suspect in Monday’s massacre at the King Soopers supermarket in the Colorado city of Boulder, faces 10 counts of murder in the first degree, Boulder Police Chief Maris Herold said Tuesday.
The suspect is a resident of Arvada, Colorado, and has “lived most of his life in the United States,” Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty said. He sustained “a through-and-through” gunshot wound to his leg, and was taken into custody at 3:28 p.m. Monday, Herold said.
He was sent to a hospital in stable condition, and was being treated there Tuesday, Herold said. Though officers exchanged gunfire with the suspect, it wasn’t immediately clear whether the shot that injured him came from the police, she said.
