A man who escaped Monday’s mass shooting at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, in which 10 people were killed recalled the terrifying moment he first heard gunshots and realized he had to run for his life.
In interviews on CNN, Ryan Borowski said he saw a look of horror and fear on another customer’s face and then fled with staff and other shoppers through the maze-like storeroom of the King Soopers grocery store.
Store workers helped as many as two dozen customers avoid dead ends and escape through the store’s loading dock, said Borowski, who was shopping for ice cream, soda and chips.
“Boulder feels like a bubble and that bubble burst,” says Ryan Borowski, an eyewitness to a shooting at the King Soopers supermarket in Boulder, Colorado.

“Absolutely insane,” Borowski told “CNN Tonight” anchor Don Lemon of the chaos. “It was just ‘go go go, get out of here.’”
“Boulder feels like a bubble and the bubble burst and that’s heartbreaking. To think that people died today,” Borowski told “Outfront” anchor Erin Burnett.
“It doesn’t feel like there’s anywhere safe anymore, sometimes,” he continued. “This feels like the safest spot in America and I just nearly got killed for getting a soda, you know, and a bag of chips. Doesn’t feel good.”
