Three killed, nine injured in attack on Colorado abortion clinic

Sharing is Caring

Colorado, Nov 28 (ANI): The police arrested a gunman, who stormed a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Colorado Springs on Friday and opened fire in an attack that left at least three people dead and nine others injured, authorities said. The dead included a police officer and two civilians. Those injured are being treated at the area hospitals. The suspect first engaged in a protracted gun battle with the police but ultimately surrendered to officers inside the building about five hours after the start of the violence, which played out under a steady snowfall in Colorado’s second-largest city. Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers said that the toll could have been much higher. The Colorado Springs clinic has been the target of repeated protests by anti-abortion activists, and in recent years moved to new quarters on the city’s northwest side – a facility derided as a “fortress” by critics of Planned Parenthood.
