The Jeffco Sheriff's Office issued a shelter-in-place order for homes in the immediate area.
A person barricaded themself with a gun inside a home on S. Holland Way, the Jeffco Sheriff said on X, as Jeffco SWAT worked to de-escalate the situation.
But 15 minutes later, the sheriff's office posted that the situation at the home was over, and there was no safety threat to the public.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home to discover three children were able to escape but one girl was shot in the leg. The child, whose age was not released, was taken to a hospital and her injuries were non-life threatening, said Jeffco investigators.
A woman was later found dead inside and SWAT found a man apparently dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
