An “active shooter” has been reported at a King Soopers grocery store in Boulder, Colorado, police said.
A law enforcement source told ABC News that officers responded to a report of someone shot in the parking area, and when they arrived at the scene, a suspect opened fire on them.
The suspect allegedly used a long gun, according to sources.
There are reports of injuries, but no further details are currently available, according to a source.
Several law enforcement agencies quickly arrived at the scene, including the state SWAT team.
Nearby eyewitnesses shared videos from outside the lot, which show officers ordering the suspect to come out of the store with his hands up and surrender.
Colorado Gov. Jared Polis tweeted out a statement Monday afternoon reacting to the incident.
Like my fellow Coloradans, I am closely watching unfolding events at King Soopers in Boulder. My prayers are with our fellow Coloradans in this time of sadness and grief as we learn more about the extent of the tragedy.— Governor Jared Polis (@GovofCO) March 22, 2021
A man who said he was shopping at the store told KCNC-TV that he heard a loud bang, then heard another, and by the third, everyone was running. He said they ran to the back of the store, found the employee area and workers told them how to escape.
He said they walked single file, with their arms on the backs of those in front of them.

TV footage showed an ambulance has pulled away from the store, apparently carrying the bleeding man brought out of the store in handcuffs. Officers were helping people out of the store to safety.
A person who answered the telephone at a nearby sandwich shop said he and his employees were locked down in the back of the store and all were safe.
Someone who answered the phone at nail studio next door said she and her colleagues were safe. Neither had details on what happened at the market across the street.
