More than 3,000 hours and 156 interviews later, Boulder police chief says mass shooter’s motives still unknown

Prosecutors expect to file additional attempted first-degree murder charges against the suspect accused of killing 10 people Monday at a Boulder King Soopers, Boulder County’s district attorney said Friday.
