Tearful customer describes escape from shooting in grocery store

 Police in Boulder, Colorado, reported an “active shooter” at a grocery store on Monday (March 22), and aerial footage broadcast live from the scene by local media showed one person being placed in an ambulance and a bloodied man being escorted away in handcuffs.

The Twitter alert from police said the incident unfolded at a King Soopers grocery store in the Table Mesa area of Boulder, a city at the eastern foot of the Rockies about 28 miles northwest of Denver.

Sarah Moonshadow, a witness, said she and her son were at the checkout when she heard multiple gunshots. The two ducked for cover and then started running to leave the store. The shaken customer said she took shelter behind a building, but her dog was still at the grocery store.

TV news footage showed police leading customers and workers out of the store with hands on their heads. Aerial footage also showed a heavy law enforcement presence outside the supermarket, along with at least two ambulances.

Table Mesa is home to the hilltop laboratory of the National Center for Atmospheric Research. The supermarket is located about 2 miles from the University of Colorado’s flagship campus.
