Ten people were killed Monday when a gunman opened fire at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado. One person has been taken into custody in connection with the shooting, and officials said there is no ongoing threat to the public.

One of the victims was identified as 51-year-old Boulder Police Officer Eric Talley.

Police said the person of interest was injured and is being treated at the hospital. Earlier, helicopter footage from CBS Denver showed authorities escorting a shirtless man in handcuffs who appeared to have a bleeding leg from the scene, but at a press conference Monday evening officials would not confirm if that man is the person of interest. 

Witnesses described a chaotic scene as several loud bangs went off in the grocery store. One man said that he first thought someone had dropped something inside the store — but by the third shot, he said, everyone started running. 

"I can't believe it's happening in Boulder," he told CBS Denver. 

The parking lot outside the store was filled with police vehicles, officers and first responders who rushed to the scene Monday afternoon. At 2:49 p.m. local time, the Boulder Police Department warned residents of an active shooter on Twitter. 

Governor Jared Polis tweeted, "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."
