Rikki Olds, a 25-year-old King Soopers employee, was among the 10 people killed in the Boulder grocery store on Monday, her aunt confirmed to The Denver Post.
Lori Olds said in a message to a Post reporter that she was notified around 3 a.m. Tuesday, more than 12 hours after the shooting, that her niece was dead.
“Thank you everyone for all your prayers but the Lord got a beautiful young angel yesterday at the hands of a deranged monster,” Lori Olds wrote in a public post on her Facebook page Tuesday morning.
Olds said her niece worked as a front-end manager at King Soopers at 3600 Table Mesa Drive in Boulder.
The suspect is facing 10 counts of first-degree murder.
Rikki Olds’ Facebook identifies her as a Lafayette resident who attended Centaurus High School and Front Range Community College.
