At least 3 injured in shooting near Colorado Springs abortion clinic

Police on Friday swarmed the scene of an “active shooter” situation they said was unfolding near a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and three officers and an undetermined number of civilians were injured, police and hospital officials said. The Colorado Springs Police Department said in a tweet that the situation was still not stabilized. The Denver Post, quoting a police spokeswoman, said that earlier reports that the situation was contained were not accurate. “This is an active situation,” Lt. Catherine Buckley of the Colorado Springs Police Department told CNN, “We’re not sure what the connection is to Planned Parenthood. She said police could not confirm the shooter’s location. A spokeswoman for Penrose-St. Francis Medical Center in Colorado Springs confirmed the hospital received three patients from the shooting but the nature and extent of their injuries were not immediately provided.
