DENVER – Shots were fired in Denver’s Civic Center Park during the 420 Rally, and at least two people were hurt, according to Denver police.

Police tweeted that one person was shot in the leg and another was also down with “unknown” injuries.

AIRTRACKER7 was over the area and streamed video of one person on the ground. Several police motorcycles were parked nearby and paramedics arrived a few moments later.

7NEWS reporter Russell Haythorn said he heard “four to five shots fired” at about 5:02 p.m. and the ambulances arrived while he was live in the 5 p.m. news.

“We were standing in the center over there, they just started shooting,” a witness in Broncos clothing told Haythorn.

“Did you see anything?”

“I didn’t see it, but I could hear ‘boom, boom, boom,’ and I could see everybody just trampling and running,” the witness responded.

Cody Crouch, the camera operator aboard AIRTRACKER7, tweeted, “I saw thousands running away from the south theater area.”

A few minutes later, the helicopter had to leave the park because of a temporary flight restriction related to the Rockies game.

Denver police tweeted that they’ve initiated multiple road closures including Colfax at Bannock, 13th at Bannock, 14th at Bannock and Colfax at Delaware.
