One disturbing video shows two victims on the ground outside the store, and a third on the ground. “Get 911 right here,” the man who is filming the video says. “We’ve got injured parties on the ground. We don’t know. There’s a shooter, active shooter somewhere. Could be in the store. He went in the store. Oh my God. Guys we’ve got people down in King Soopers.” Gunfire then rings out in the video.

Live video shows an armored vehicle at the scene. “Guys this happened… not even 30 seconds ago. I heard gunshots going. Guys there’s an active shooter,” the streamer says.

“People ran out the back door. The active shooter is still in there,” the live streamer said early in the video.
