DENVER (KDVR) — More than a week after he rushed into a King Soopers in Boulder in response to an active shooter, Boulder Police Officer Eric Talley was laid to rest Tuesday at 11 a.m. at the Flatirons Community Church in Lafayette.
The Lafayette Police Department posted the procession route on Twitter. It included Highway 7, 119th Street, and S. Boulder Road. Traffic was affected by road closures for the procession, which concluded at approximately 10:30 a.m. Additionally, S. Boulder Road (between Public Road and Coal Creek Drive) and Waneka Parkway was closed at approximately 8 a.m. and did not reopen until late afternoon.
