DENVER (AP) -- The Colorado state capitol was temporarily put on lockdown Thursday as police investigated a shooting in a nearby park.

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 normal inside, including a tour of the building.

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