LAKEWOOD, Colo. -- Fox Hollow Golf Course was put in lockdown early Sunday after golfers reported hearing gun shots in the area.

"We arrived in the area and found a male on property. He has been contained and the officers on scene are working to establish contact," said Ty Countryman, a Lakewood Police Department spokesman.

Golfers were evacuated from the course and driving range shortly after 7:30 a.m., an employee told Denver7.

Shortly after 9 a.m. the situation came to an end when a man was rushed to the hospital with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, Countryman told Denver7.

"He was still alive," said Countryman, adding the man was taken to a hospital. His condition is unknown at this time, according to Countryman.

The course reopened a short time later.

"There was no threat, it was all contained to this one person," Countryman said.

Fox Hollow Golf Course is located off West Morrison Road and South Kipling Parkway near Bear Creek Lake.
