DENVER, Jan. 30 (UPI) -- Police say one person has been killed after multiple shootings and stabbings were reported at the Denver Coliseum.

Denver Health reported nine people were being transported to local hospitals after the incidents. The Denver Health campus went on lock down briefly during the incident as a precaution.

9News Colorado reported the Colorado Motorcycle Expo was being held at the coliseum. The incident may have involved one or more motorcycle clubs.

Denver Police Chief Robert White disputed earlier reports about the number of injuries in a press conference Saturday evening. White said seven were injured, as opposed to nine, which does not include the one fatality. Further details were sparse due to the ongoing investigation.
