Shelter-in-place order lifted following barricade situation in Broomfield

BROOMFIELD, Colo. — Broomfield police asked some people to shelter in place due to a barricaded gunman in the area Wednesday evening.

At 6 p.m. Wednesday, the Broomfield Police Department asked people near Hazel Way and East Midway Boulevard to stay indoors. Those who were outdoors were asked to go inside and remain there until further notice.

“Do not go outside and do not evacuate the area. Close and lock all doors and windows,” BPD said in a “code red” alert sent to people in the area.
