"We will continue to cooperate with local law enforcement and our store will remain closed during the police investigation", it added, saying it is referring all questions to the Boulder Police Department.

Police injured a white male suspect outside the King Soopers grocery store and took him into custody.

Congressman Joe Neguse, who represents Boulder, said he was struck that Monday's tragedy unfolded at a supermarket, one of the few "consistent gathering places" for Americans during this year of pandemic shutdown.

"He just came in and started shooting", one of the customers who was buying pizza at a self-checkout counter inside the store told The Denver Post.

Police had told people to shelter in place amid a report of an "armed, risky individual" about 5 kilometres away from the grocery store but said at the news conference later that it wasn't related to the shooting.

Monday's mid-afternoon attack was the seventh mass killing this year in the US, following the March 16 shooting that left eight people dead at three Atlanta-area massage businesses, according to a database compiled by The Associated Press, USA Today and Northeastern University.

Someone who answered the phone at nail studio next door said she and her colleagues were safe.

Investigators don't know yet why the suspect opened fire inside the grocery store, Dougherty said.

Police arrived at the scene after receiving reports of an active shooter at the grocery store just before 3 p.m.as customers and employees ran for cover after hearing a series of loud bangs.

The attack in Boulder, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northwest of Denver and home to the University of Colorado, stunned a state that has seen several mass shootings, including the 1999 Columbine High School massacre and the 2012 Aurora movie theater shooting.

"Flags had barely been raised from half-staff" following last week's shooting spree in Atlanta-area massage spas when the new violence broke out in Boulder, Polis said.

He said Officer Talley's life was "cut far too short".

The House passed an expansion of gun background checks in March.

One video of the incident from YouTube shows two victims lying on the ground in the parking lot of the store.

"They're busy under the gold dome in Georgia trying to prevent people from being able to vote the same day they register", he continued. What sounds like two gunshots are heard at the beginning of the video.
