The new counts are related to the attempted murder of eight people who were inside the King Soopers store on March 22.

Alissa now faces the following charges:

  • 10 counts of first-degree murder
  • 27 counts of attempted first-degree murder of civilians
  • 20 counts of attempting first-degree murder of law enforcement
  • One count of first-degree assault
  • 10 counts of using a prohibited large capacity magazine during a crime
  • 47 counts of crime of violence (a sentence enhancer)

There are 26 victims of attempted murder, according to prosecutors. Fifteen of them are civilians and 11 are members are law enforcement. There is one charge for each of them, but some may be named more than once, which is why there are more charges than victims, prosecutors explained.

The lone charge of assault is related to a woman who fell while fleeing from the store and fractured a vertebra in her spine, prosecutors said during a previous news conference.
