Following the tragic shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, that left 10 people dead, including a police officer on Monday, Colorado sports teams offered condolences to victims and their families.

On Monday, around 2:30 pm, 911 calls were made about a gunman opening fire at the King Soopers supermarket. Officer Eric Talley was the first officer to respond to the shooting. Officer Talley was fatally shot protecting the people inside. 10 people were killed, including officer Talley.

The Colorado Rockies, Colorado Avalanche, Colorado Rapids, Denver Broncos, and Denver Nuggets were the teams that tweeted out condolences to the victims.
