A shirtless man with blood running down his leg was escorted out of the store in handcuffs by two police officers.
Police in Boulder tweeted Monday that the shooter is at a King Soopers grocery store.
Television helicopter shows law enforcement vehicles and officers massing outside with SWAT teams and at least five helicopters on the roof of the store, home to the University of Colorado about 25 miles northwest of Denver.
Boulder Chief Maris Herold identified the officer who was killed in the shooting as 51-year-old Officer Eric Talley. Authorities have not identified the gunman. Identities of the other nine victims were not disclosed as police were still notifying their family members.
At one point, police officials tweeted they wanted people at another location, about three miles away, to shelter in place because of a “report of armed, dangerous individual.” But it turned out the second site was not connected to the supermarket shooting, officials said.
