Planned Parenthood Shooting
Two civilians and a police officer were killed after a gunman opened fire at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic in a nearly six-hour standoff Friday.
Police captured the suspected gunman, but they're still working to pinpoint his motive -- and make sure he didn't leave any explosives inside or outside the Colorado Springs building.
Bomb technicians are investigating what's believed to be the suspect's vehicle in a parking lot, a law enforcement official said. It was not immediately clear why Planned Parenthood was the target of the shooting. One Planned Parenthood official said the motive behind the attack was unknown, but pointed to what she called a "poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism" as a possible cause.
We don't yet know the full circumstances and motives behind this criminal action, and we don't yet know if Planned Parenthood was in fact the target of this attack," Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, said in a written statement. "We share the concerns of many Americans that extremists are creating a poisonous environment that feeds domestic terrorism in this country. We will never back away from providing care in a safe, supportive environment that millions of people rely on and trust." (Reported: CNN)
When will this terrorism come to an end? Can expect a day when we can sleep without fear? Share your comments here:
