COMMERCE CITY, Colo. (KDVR) — Police said reports of an active shooter at a Commerce City industrial facility were unfounded, but someone with ties to the facility had made threats.
Police were dispatched to the scene at 8001 E. 88th Ave. just before 6:30 p.m., according to the Commerce City Police Department.
“Officers responded immediately and made entry to the facility as soon as they were on scene,” police said in a statement. “Officers soon learned there were no injuries, no active shooter in the building and the call was the result of threats from a person with ties to the facility.”
Just before 7 p.m. Wednesday, FOX31 crews found a large police presence at the facility, listed as Lineage Logistics, a cold storage facility.
