DENVER (AP) - The Colorado state capitol was temporarily put on lockdown Thursday as police investigated a shooting about a block away.

Police say shots were fired on Colfax Avenue - a busy street that runs through the city - but no one was hit.

The capitol was locked down as a precaution. State troopers rushed out to investigate but business continued as normal inside, including a tour of the building.

Police say three suspects were arrested and weapons were recovered a few blocks away.
