Authorities in the US state of Colorado said that a shooting occurred in a store in Boulder, killing 10 people, including a policeman, and that a suspect was arrested, who was also wounded in the incident.
Police said that they do not have many details and do not know the motive behind the accident, which occurred around 3 pm on Monday in the King Sobers grocery store.
Commander Kerry Yamaguchi of the city police told reporters that investigators had begun inspecting the scene.
“Several people were killed in this incident, and I regret to inform you that one of them was from the Boulder police team,” he added.
He said that it is believed that the detained person was the only person who was injured alive. He did not give details about it.
But a video recording from the scene broadcast by television stations showed a bearded, bare-chested man outside the store, handcuffed, before he was put on a stretcher and taken to an ambulance. The detained man showed blood on his leg and was limping while walking.
Yamaguchi also said that the police had received a report of a second incident in an apartment building five kilometers away, but it turned out to be unrelated to the incident in the store.
