Police: No injuries as gunfire exchanged in Colorado Walmart

BROOMFIELD, Colo. — A man and woman exchanged gunfire Tuesday inside a suburban Denver Walmart, panicking shoppers and triggering a swarming police response, police said.

No one was hurt and the woman was taken into custody.

Officers were searching for the man involved in the afternoon shooting at the store in Broomfield, police Sgt. Steve Griebel said.

The names of the woman and man weren’t immediately released. A motive had not yet been determined.

Griebel said the man and woman knew each other, but he did not know details of their relationship.

Police urged shoppers to avoid the area about 10 miles (16 kilometres) northwest of downtown Denver.

Video by KUSA showed a large police presence surrounding the Walmart. Yellow tape blocked entrances, and armed officers walked the roof of the shopping centre and questioned people on sidewalks
