CBS4's Alan Gionet reports an apparent victim was on the ground outside of a BMW which also  appeared to have been struck. Police say that victim is a male.

Paula Miller was inside when she was told to evacuate.

"Walk out to go to my car and there's a body down the way, it's rattling," she said.

The other two victims are only described as a male juvenile, in critical condition, and a female, an adult in stable condition.

One of those victims told police who the suspect was, and a suspect's family member called police.

"We knew within a very short amount of time who we were looking for," said Rachel Haslett, Broomfield Police spokeswoman. "The people involved knew each other. They did not go inside the store."

Police say the suspect called them, and they spoke with him on the phone while monitoring him visually. They say they convinced him to turn himself in at the police department, which he did.

The suspect is only described as an 19 year old.

"We were confident very quickly that this community was safe, that this was not a random incident where this person was going to go hurt other people," Haslett said.

Zuni was closed between 124th to Midway.
