  • Multiple parties down in shooting at Thornton Walmart

There were two "confirmed deceased adult males" and one woman transported to a hospital, the Thornton Police Department said on Twitter about two hours after first reporting the incident.

Smith said he and other customers had trouble getting the door to open as they tried to get out of the store.

They say there has been a shooting with multiple injuries. "Active crime scene. We will update as info becomes available", the police department said in a tweet.

Police first reported that gunshots had been fired around 6 p.m. Wednesday night. Authorities used security video to help identify him.

The shooting appears random and there are no indications that it was an act of terror, said Thornton police spokesman Victor Avila.


He says the motive is unknown.

Police in Thornton, Colorado say "multiple parties are down" after a shooting at a Walmart Wednesday night. The three who were killed were the only ones shot.

"The employees started screaming".

Authorities are reviewing security video to identify the suspect, who fled in a vehicle before officers arrived.
