Nothing has yet been announced about the identity of the other victims. The shooting incident happened in the city of Boulder, about 25 miles from Denver. Police have arrested a suspect who is currently in custody for questioning. The authorities are still investigating, it is unclear what exactly happened.
Emergency services went out en masse; special arrest teams rushed to the store. Three police helicopters were also deployed. Images from local media show how officers take away a handcuffed, partly naked man. It is unclear whether he is a suspect.
