Though Lt. Kirk Wilson, a Colorado Springs police spokesman, told the Colorado Springs Gazette that the shooter had been “contained,” the department’s public affairs division said on social media that the situation was “still not stable.”
A different police spokesperson, Lt. Catherine Buckley, said it was “very much an active situation.”
“We can’t confirm where the shooter is at at this point,” Buckley told reporters.
A reporter from the Gazette said “multiple civilians” were hurt in the incident.
