Colorado springs shooting

 

A gunman inside a Planned Parenthood center in Colorado Springs in the USA was exchanging gunfire with the police, the authorities said on Friday, after an hours long shooting spree that left at least eight people injured including four officers. People in the surrounding buildings, including the clinic, were told to shelter in place.

Lt. Catherine Buckley, a police spokeswoman, said during a news conference that the police were exchanging shots with the gunman, who was barricaded in a windowless office. He was described as white man in a trench coat with an assault rifle.

The encounter could be heard on the police scanner.

“We’re exchanging gunfire,” one officer said on the radio, “We are trying to keep him pinned down.”

“Put gunfire through the walls,” came a reply. “Whatever, we got to stop this guy.”

Near the Planned Parenthood center, about 10 ambulances were lined up.

“We’re not sure of what the connection is to Planned Parenthood,” but that was the original address received, Lieutenant Buckley said during the news conference.

Two hospitals said they had received a total of six patients, though their conditions were unknown.
