The FBI and ATF are helping local police investigate a mass shooting that left 10 people dead at a supermarket in Boulder, Colorado, on Monday. 

The suspect was arrested outside the King Scoopers grocery market.

“There is no ongoing public threat,” Boulder Police Commander Kerry Yamaguchi said at a news conference, USA Today reports. “We do have a person of interest in custody. That person was injured during the incident and is being treated for the injuries.” 

Among those killed was a police officer, Eric Talley, an 11-year veteran on the Boulder force. 

“At the request of the Boulder Police Department, FBI Denver personnel are assisting with an investigation into an active shooter situation at a King Soopers grocery store on Table Mesa Drive in Boulder,” the bureau’s Denver office tweeted.
