Police Officer Eric Talley was among the victims of a recent shooting that happened in Boulder. In the wake of the tragic incident, his sister, Kristin, has penned a touching tribute.

Kristin expressed her grief over Talley's death, describing it as a devastating loss and adding that she could not explain how beautiful he was to her and many others. She concluded by writing:

"Fly high, my sweet brother. You always wanted to be a pilot (damn color blindness). Soar."


The touching post was met with a series of comments from supporters and followers who shared their condolences and offered prayers for Kristin and the rest of her family.

Apart from Talley, authorities have confirmed that nine other people were killed in the shooting, which happened in a Colorado supermarket on Monday.


Talking about the incident, Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty reportedly said Talley's life was cut short too soon, adding that he was one of the most outstanding officers in the police department.

Talley joined the Boulder Police Department in 2010, meaning he served as an officer for over ten years until his tragic death on Monday.


In addition to his commitment to the Boulder Police Department, Talley was also a doting father of seven children whom he loved more than anything in the world.

Sources close to Talley also revealed that the late officer had been looking for a job to keep him away from the frontlines and was learning to be a drone operator.

Talley was the first officer to arrive at the Table Mesa Drive grocery store after reports of the shooting were made to the Boulder Police Department.

Following the tragic incident, one person has been arrested as the investigation continues. Hopefully, Talley and all other victims will get the justice they so deserve.
