Boulder DA asks judge to withhold King Soopers shooting video from public for preliminary hearing

Daily Camera: The Boulder District Attorney’s Office has filed a second motion asking to withhold a video of the King Soopers mass shooting from the public during a preliminary hearing for the accused shooter, and also indicated it would be willing to not present the video as evidence at the hearing if the request is denied.

But prosecutors also said the video will be viewable to the public either at trial or a possible sentencing, and that this step was taken to ensure a fair trial and reduce unnecessary trauma to the victims and their families.

Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa, 21, is charged with 10 counts of first-degree murder, 47 counts of attempted first-degree murder, one count of first-degree assault, 10 counts of felony possession of a prohibited large capacity magazine and 47 crime of violence sentence enhancers.
