Man kills three in Planned Parenthood shooting

Many times we are unaware of the thoughts behind some of the times most heinous crimes. In recent weeks, Colorado has been rocked with terrible acts that have left most wondering what's next. For the authorities of Colorado Springs, the next step may be trying to figure out what prompted the most recent act of terror; the mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility, and why one of their own is dead.

Beginning at 11:30 a.m. on a Friday, the five-hour long ordeal left nine injured and three more dead, including a police officer, after a shooter opened fire in a local Planned Parenthood facility. The shooter, a 57-year-old man, held people inside the Planned Parenthood facility for hours while he and the police exchanged gunfire. It was unknown whether the shooter was acting alone or had an accomplice and whether he was only armed with a rifle or had other weapons.

During the standoff, SWAT used an armored vehicle called Bearcat to get people safely away from the building while attempting to diffuse the situation. As temperatures dropped into the 20's, those being rescued were either taken by ambulance for medical care or quickly wrapped in blankets.

Roughly five hours later, police officers communicated with the shooter and convinced him to surrender. He was taken into custody at 4:52 p.m. Friday. While the shooter may have been unharmed, the local police departments mourn the loss of one of their own; a 44-year-old University officer that was one of the first to respond to the call. With their loss, the community also mourns the loss of two other lives taken by the shooter.

While the shooter's motive is still unknown, the terror he inflicted on the community will likely have lasting effects. It is everyone's hope that things like this stop happening to our nation and loved ones, but there will likely still be things that turn ordinary people into victims. For those people, getting the help they need may take several resources including a dedicated attorney.
