DENVER -- One woman was critically injured in a shooting in the 1500 block of Wynkoop in lower downtown Denver Tuesday afternoon. Police responded quickly and shut down a number of streets in the area while they dealt with an "active shooting scene."

A spokesman at Denver Health Medical Center said they did not expect any more victims.

Police said the shooting happened at 2:42 p.m. inside the Alliance Center, 1536 Wynkoop. The scene was secure at around 3:30 p.m. There was no further danger to the public according to police.

Denver Police spokesman Doug Schepman said a male suspect was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He said the woman was shot multiple times and in critical condition.

Schepman said the victim appeared to be targeted and this did not look like a random shooting, but he emphasized this was very early, preliminary information.

The building where the shooting took place is said to house several non-profit organizations.
