3 killed in shooting at Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado US
« on: November 28, 2015, 10:09:10 AM »

Three people have been killed and nine injured in a shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic in the US state of Colorado, police say.

The suspected gunman, identified by US media reports as 59-year-old Robert Lewis Dear, opened fire at the family planning clinic in Colorado Springs at around 11.30am local time (6.30pm GMT) on 27 November.

Police were called to the facility and a five-hour standoff ensued, during which gunfire was exchanged before the gunman turned himself in.

Two civilians and a police officer, 44-year-old Garrett Swasey, were killed in the shooting. Four civilians and five police officers were taken to hospitals with gunshot wounds.

It is not yet clear why the Planned Parenthood clinic was targeted. The non-profit organisation has been the target of anti-abortion protests in the past.
