One man was shot in the neck Tuesday evening at the Colorado Cultivations shop at 3490 W. Carefree Circle, police reported.

Four customers were in the store at the time, police said. One of them was shot.

The gunman was detained, officers said, and charges are expected to be filed.

Colorado Cultivations sells hydroponics, soil propagation and lighting for growing marijuana as well as some drug products, including CBD, or cannabidiol, used primarily for medical purposes. 

Store owner Bobby Garrod apparently was waiting on customers when the shooting occurred.

Afterward, a 2010 four-door Subaru Forester X Limited — possibly the victim’s vehicle — was towed from the scene. 

The victim was taken to a hospital and was in surgery for non-life threatening injuries, police said.
