DENVER - It was a scare for some shoppers at the Sports Authority store downtown this afternoon when a man inside threatened to hurt himself.
Denver police officers surrounded the store on Broadway just before 3 p.m. and cleared out shoppers.
Investigators say the man had a knife to his neck inside the store for more than an hour while they tried to negotiate with him.
When the man came at officers - they fired rubber bullets at him.
He was taken out of the store on a stretcher with a cut to the neck. Police say the cut was self-inflicted.
No one else was hurt.
