“Multiple deputies” were down on Sunday after police responded to a call of an active shooter situation 
in Littleton, Colo., a residential area south of Denver, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.
“Update, we have multiple deputies down, no update on their status. The scene remains active and please avoid the area,” the sheriff’s office said on Twitter.

The incident prompted a “code red” to be issued in Douglas County.

The sheriff’s website said it had no update on the status of the officers as the scene was still active.

“Any citizens in the affected area are instructed to shelter in place, avoid windows and stay away from exterior walls,” another tweet from the sheriff’s office said.

A spokesperson for the office told the Denver Post newspaper that a SWAT team, has been called to the scene.
