No arrests were made, but Boulder police chief Maris Herold said the arrests would come. Police say they are considering body cameras, social media images, and hundreds of tips to identify the person responsible.
The University of Colorado at Boulder states that anyone who commits violence against law enforcement agencies or first responders will be removed and will not be readmitted.
