A Colorado sheriff's office said "multiple deputies are down" in an active shooter situation Sunday morning at an apartment complex near Denver. They say five deputies and two civilians were shot by the suspect.
The sheriff's office said that the suspect knew police were coming and began firing when they arrived. Another nearby hospital said it received four patients but wouldn't release their conditions.
The DCSO said earlier that citizens should avoid the area, while residents were advised to shelter in place and avoid windows and exterior walls.
An investigation is in progress and most of County Line Road is closed down from Colorado Boulevard to University Boulevard.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office, Parker Police Department, Lone Tree Police Department, Castle Rock Police Department and Colorado State Patrol went on accident alert because of the incident.
