Teen girls hid in closet for hour during Boulder shooting: grandfather

When a gunman opened fire at a Colorado supermarket, killing 10 people, two teenage girls hid in an upstairs closet for an hour before they were rescued by police, according to their grandfather.

The girls were at the King Soopers in Boulder with their father, who was getting a COVID-19 vaccine, when all hell broke loose, the grandfather told NBC affiliate KUSA.

“There was shooting, and he saw it and got the girls down. They ran and hid upstairs in a coat closet for an hour — in the coats,” he said.

“They were communicating with my daughter through his phone, texting, and then the cops came in through the roof, protecting them,” Steven continued.

“They’re out now. Out the back. This is going to be pretty hard for them to live with, I think… Every city is susceptible, but there’s a way in which, I would think, well, this isn’t going to happen in Boulder. And now we know better,” he added.
