We have reports of a shooting at a Walmart in Thornton, Colorado, just outside of Denver. Multiple casualties have been reported. CBS Denver is reporting that details are scarce, but there's a heavy police presence. Michael Konopasek of Fox 31 reported that it’s no longer an active shooter situation, but now an active crime scene, though many are worried about their loved ones. Ryan Luby of Denver’s local ABC News outlet reported that at least two people have been shot. One is dead; the other is in critical condition.
UPDATE: Via Fox News two people are dead, one is wounded:
Police in suburban Denver said Wednesday that two men were killed and a woman was injured in a shooting at a Walmart Super Center.
Thornton Police reported the shooting at approximately 6:30 p.m. local time. A little more than an hour later, they tweeted that there was not an active shooter "at this time." However, they did not say whether a suspect had been apprehended.
Special agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are headed to the scene to help police.
