Boulder shooting suspect Ahmad Al Aliwi Al issa was short-tempered, violent
Mercury News | 3/23/2021

He said he did not like spending time with Alissa, and Alissa was not close with anyone on the wrestling team. Another teammate, Angel Hernandez — who lives in Arvada and graduated from Arvada West in 2019 — said Alissa got into a fight in the parking lot after the match.

"(The other wrestler) was just teasing him and goes, 'Maybe if you were a better wrestler, you would have won.' (Alissa) just lost it. He started punching him," Hernandez said.

Hernandez said Alissa frequently appeared to be paranoid about perceived slights against him, and Marvel said Alissa was often concerned about being targeted because of his Muslim faith.

"He would talk about him being Muslim and how if anybody tried anything, he would file a hate crime and say they were making it up," Marvel said. "It was a crazy deal..."

"He was always talking about (how) people were looking at him and there was no one ever where he was pointing people out," Hernandez said. "We always thought he was messing around with us or something."

In 2017, Alissa, then 18, attacked a classmate at Arvada West High School, according to an affidavit filed in the case. He punched the classmate in the head without warning, and when the boy fell to the ground, Alissa continued to punch him. The classmate suffered bruises and cuts to his head, according to the affidavit.

10:15 p.m.: Arvada police begin to send information to Boulder police regarding the search warrant for Alissa's residence. Uniformed officers stop a vehicle leaving the residence and interview Alissa's sister-in-law. She tells officers that one of his brothers owned a handgun and that Alissa had been "playing with a gun she thought looked like a 'machine gun' about 2 days ago.' "
