Colorado police casualty photo released

ROUGH CUT – NO REPORTER NARRATION

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs has released a photograph of the campus police officer who died during a siege at an abortion clinic on Friday (November 27).

Officer Garrett Swasey, aged 44, was among the officers who joined Colorado Springs city police responding to first reports of shots being fired, authorities said.

Two civilians also died in the siege which began when a gunman stormed the Planned Parenthood clinic and opened fire with a rifle.

Nine other people, civilians and police officers, were wounded.

The attacker launched a protracted gun battle with police but surrendered to officers inside the building about five hours later.

Police said they did not expect to confirm the suspect’s identity until later, but believed he acted alone.

The Denver Post and the Colorado Springs Gazette newspapers, each citing an unidentified law enforcement source, reported Friday night that the suspect was identified as Robert Lewis Dear. The

Post gave his age as 57, but neither paper had further details.
