Initial scanner traffic from the scene suggested that the suspect fired on officers and that there were multiple people injured inside the store, but that has not been independently confirmed. Boulder PD have yet to give any official details on the situation, beyond it being an active shooter incident.
Two people have been ushered out of the building so far. One of them was handcuffed and bleeding from what appeared to be a leg wound. Wearing only underwear in the near-freezing temperature, he was placed on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance.
