An active shooter has been reported at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, authorities said Monday afternoon.

The Boulder Police Department said on Twitter that there is an "active Shooter at the King Soopers on Table Mesa" and urged local residents to "avoid the area."

Live video from local TV stations showed a large police presence outside the supermarket.

TV footage showed people were escorted out of the supermarket by police officers.

A shirtless man with blood on his leg was taken out of the supermarket in handcuffs by three police officers, live TV footage showed.

A law enforcement source told ABC News that officers responded to a report of someone shot in the parking area, and when they arrived at the scene, a suspect opened fire on them.

Further information about the incident was not immediately provided by local authorities.

Two witnesses told The Denver Post that they saw a gunman entering the store.

"He didn't say shit," one of the witnesses was quoted as saying by the newspaper. "He just came in and started shooting."

The other witness told The Denver Post that the gunman "let off a couple of shots, then was silent, and then he let off a couple more. He wasn't spraying."

"Like my fellow Coloradans, I am closely watching unfolding events at King Soopers in Boulder," tweeted Colorado Governor Jared Polis.

"My prayers are with our fellow Coloradans in this time of sadness and grief as we learn more about the extent of the tragedy," he noted.
