She told gathered media that the shooting happened in the parking lot of the Cedar Wood business complex. Earlier reports had the shooting happening outside a dentist office but Spottke nor other sources would confirm which office.
Spottke originally said the four-door was only a vehicle of interest. About an hour later, Westminster police tweeted that the Corolla is a suspect vehicle. The vehicle and driver is now in custody.
KUSA reporter Katie Eastman spoke with the owner of a car shop near the dentist office who said he heard seven or eight “deliberate” gunshots and watched as a man ran down the sidewalk of Sheridan.
"Like somebody was taking their time aiming at whatever they were shooting at," witness Shaun Lucius said. "It wasn't like they were out there just shooting at targets."
Aerial footage shows about a dozen or more patrol cars parked around the building, which is surrounded in police tape.Officers have been seen walking around the property tagging evidence.
Law enforcement sources initially confirmed to 9Wants to Know that multiple were killed, but have not repeated that information and have since said publicly that the conditions of the victims were unknown.
