Eric Talley, the Boulder, Colorado, police officer killed in the King Soopers mass shooting last week, will be honored with a memorial service on Tuesday, open to the public.

Talley, 51, was one of 10 people killed in the shooting that was allegedly carried out by Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa. As a member of the Boulder Police Department, Talley was the first victim to be identified and was the first officer to arrive on the scene after reports of a shooting. Talley was an 11-year veteran of the Boulder police force and leaves behind seven children.

According to the Boulder Police Department, a public memorial service will be held for Talley on Tuesday beginning at 11 a.m. local time. The service will be held at the Flatirons Community Church, 355 W. South Boulder Road in Lafayette.

In a press release, the Boulder Police Department said the service is open to the public, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, attendance is limited and those interested in attending are encouraged to stream the service online.

The memorial service can be streamed on the Flatirons Community Church website and a direct link to the service can be found here. According to the release, the memorial service will also be streamed on local news stations.

For those interested in attending the service in-person, the release from the department states that doors will open by 9:30 a.m. local time and all guests must be seated by 10:45 a.m. All guests attending in-person will also be required to wear protective face masks and follow social distancing measures.

In the days following the mass shooting in Boulder, Talley and the nine other victims have received an outpouring of support from community members and people across the nation.

On Monday, a funeral mass was held for Talley at the Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in Denver.

During the mass, Denver Archbishop Samuel Aquila said that Talley sacrificed his life in responding to the shooting.

“Jesus has told us, greater love than this no man has than to lay down his life and Eric lived that,” the Archbishop said during the mass. “For too often, you are are taken for granted and yet in situations like this, you are the ones who protect human life.”

Alissa, a 21-year-old Arvada, Colorado, resident was identified as the shooter by authorities on March 23. As officers responded to the shooting, Alissa was injured by police and was transported to a local hospital. He has since been charged with 10 counts of murder in the first degree.
