Judge: Colorado supermarket shooting suspect unfit for trial


Associated Press

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — A judge says a man charged with killing 10 people at a Colorado supermarket nearly two years ago remains mentally incompetent to stand trial. Proceedings against 23-year-old Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa have been paused for more than a year after a judge found him to be mentally incompetent in December 2021 and sent him to the state mental hospital for treatment. On Friday, Judge Ingrid Bakke said that while experts there say he is still incompetent, they believe there is a “reasonable likelihood” that Alissa can be made competent. He’s charged with murder and multiple attempted murder counts. He hasn’t been asked to enter a plea yet.
