Shooter Attacks Colorado Planned Parenthood
Another domestic terrorist has struck — this time walking into a Colorado Planned Parenthood facility during normal business hours and opening fire on workers and patients. Thankfully, several were able to escape any harm when quick-thinking police rammed the side of the building with a truck, creating an additional exit.
Police have detained the suspected gunman accused of opening fire inside a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado, the city’s mayor said.
“The perpetrator is in custody. The situation has been resolved. There’s no continuing peril to the citizens of Colorado Springs,” Mayor John Suthers told reporters Friday. “But there’s a huge crime scene that has to be processed. We have to determine exactly how many victims there are. We’ll be reporting on that in the near future.”
Eleven people have been transported to local hospitals, according to Colorado Springs Police Lt. Catherine Buckley. Five of those transported are police officers from various responding agencies, Buckley said.
There don’t appear to be any deaths at this point, thankfully. Hopefully everyone harmed will have a full recovery. We’ll keep you posted as more details emerge.
