An Adams County sheriff's officer was shot in North Denver, according to the Adams County Sheriff's Office.

An active scene began developing after shots were fired in the area of 88th and Dawson St. The suspect is still on the run, and a perimeter was set up as authorities and K-9 units began canvassing the area for the suspect.  

The Sheriff's Office says the “area is to be considered dangerous. Deputy was shot. Suspect armed, and if willing to shoot a cop, could shoot anyone.”

The Sheriff's Office is also urging anyone in the area to seek shelter away from doors and windows.
