Reports: Active shooter barricaded in Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood, firing at cops; Update: Cops confronting shooter inside the building

posted at 2:35 pm on November 27, 2015 by Allahpundit

No word yet on motive, but there’s a reason why national media have already picked up this story. Fox News is covering it live as I write this.

Police are exchanging gunfire with the suspect. Several injuries are reported, and patients are being transported from the scene.

Mike Violette, executive director of the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police, tweeted that the shooter is barricaded and there are multiple victims.

The one cop who was wounded was reportedly shot in the hand, but that report may be outdated. According to the Colorado Springs Gazette, multiple cops — and civilians — are hurt:

Scanner traffic indicated at least two officers were down, one near a dumpster, and another taken by ambulance to a hospital. A dispatcher said one patient was wounded at Elite Vision, located an adjacent building at 3470 Centennial Blvd. A later dispatch said at four were injured and an officer was heard requesting an ambulance. Another officer indicated wounded patients were being taken to Penrose Hospital, 2222 N. Nevada Ave.

At least one victim was taken by stretcher to an ambulance shortly after noon…

One officer said on his radio that the gunman shot out the back window of his cruiser as the officer tried to “get a look at him. A dispatcher said the gunman wore a long coat with a “hunting-type” hat.

Because the shooter’s active, media are being kept from the scene. But one reporter got close enough to see this:

Stand by for updates.

Update: Two patients taken to the hospital are reportedly in critical condition. SWAT is on the scene.

Update: Did the shooter target the PP or did he flee to the PP after shooting people elsewhere? Note in the excerpt above that one of the people injured was in an adjacent building, which could mean that the victim was shot inside the PP and ran next door to escape — or could mean that he was shot in that neighboring building and then the gunman ran next door into the Planned Parenthood.

Update: Now there’s a dispute on social media on whether the shooter is inside the PP at all. On the one hand:

On the other hand: “A gunman holed up in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs Friday opened fire repeatedly through windows…”

Update: Per the NYT, “A local television station reported that the gunman was firing at passing cars from the parking lot.”

Update: The Gazette is reporting at a little after 3 p.m. ET that the shooter has been “contained,” whatever that means.

Update: ABC Denver is covering all its bases by claiming that the shooter is “at or near” the PP. As noted above, there’s some dispute over where the shooter started shooting and even where he is now. Some media outlets like USA Today say he’s barricaded inside the Planned Parenthood; others won’t go further than to say he’s “near” the building.

Update: USA Today updates: “In addition, some civilians were injured after the gunman walked into the clinic around noon, KKTV reports.”

Update: Welp.

Unsure of his location inside a particular building or unsure of his location, period? If it’s the latter, I don’t know how they can say he’s “contained.”

Update: New from the Gazette:

1:34: The shooting situation remains active and the shooter is not contained. Colorado Springs police says there is no connection to Planned Parenthood and shooting victims are getting treatment.

Where the hell did the “barricaded inside Planned Parenthood” story come from?

Update: Conservatives on Twitter are sarcastically encouraging liberals to hurry up and pivot away now from their “all pro-lifers are maniacs” narrative to the tried-and-true “we must confiscate all guns” spin.

Update: A little more from the Gazette: “Police say they do not know the connection to Planned Parenthood, but that is where the 911 call came from.” Okay, but what about that KKTV report referenced above that the gunman “walked into the clinic around noon”?

Update: I’m so thoroughly confused at this point, I think maybe it’s best not to update any further. Here’s USA Today’s latest take on the shooting:

Police said Friday afternoon that they were still trying determine exactly where the gunman was holed up inside the building

Officers speaking on the police scanner said the gunman might be in the attic or behind the ceiling tiles in one room of the building, but that his whereabouts was uncertain.

[Police officer Lt. Catherine] Buckley said the incident began when police got a call at 11:38 a.m. that a gunman had entered the building. Responding officers, she said, “encountered active gunfire.” . Police do not know what connection, if any, the gunman has with Planned Parenthood, she said.

So we’ve got the Gazette claiming there’s no connection to PP and that the shooter is still loose and we’ve got USA Today claiming that not only was he inside the PP, he’s still somewhere inside. Feel free to use this thread to comment but I’m going to sit back for awhile.

Update: Okay, Fox News seems pretty confident given their new report at 4:45 p.m. ET: The gunman is inside Planned Parenthood — and so are the cops. They’re “engaging” him now. But per MSNBC, the shooting didn’t start there:

Did he target the Chase and then flee to the PP?

Family Research Council Condemns Shooting at Planned Parenthood

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Family Research Council President Tony Perkins released the following statement regarding the shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, CO on Friday:

“While the investigation into the shooting at the Planned Parenthood center continues, regardless of what the motive is determined to be, we strongly condemn this violence. As the target of domestic terrorism inspired by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the staff of the Family Research Council empathize with all the victims of this violence. All of us at the Family Research Council join with the pro-life movement in praying for the injured officers and victims of these deplorable acts.

“Only through peaceful means –not violence— can we truly become a nation that once again values all human life, born and unborn,” concluded Perkins.

Statement by Pam Shockley Zalabak, chancellor
University of Colorado Colorado Springs

It is with great sadness that I share that the tragic events today at the offices of Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs have touched the campus of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.

A UCCS police officer, Garrett Swasey (pronounced /Sway’zee/), 44, responded in support of Colorado Springs Police to the active shooter situation at about 11:50 a.m. Friday. He was killed in the line of duty.

UCCS officers are sworn, state-certified police officers. Officer Swasey was on duty at the campus and responded in support of Colorado Springs Police.

Officer Swasey was a six-year veteran of the UCCS Police Department.

UCCS is working with Officer Swasey’s family and continues to support the Colorado Springs Police Department at the shooting scene.

All questions about the investigation of Planned Parenthood shootings should be directed to the Colorado Springs Police Department.

Police Officer Garrett Swasey was shot and killed while responding to an active shooter at a medical facility at 3480 Centennial Boulevard shortly after 11:30 am.

A subject armed with a rifle had entered the facility and opened fire on employees and patients before barricading himself inside. Officer Swasey was among the initial responders and was fatally shot at the scene along with two civilians. Three Colorado Springs Police Department officers, one El Paso County Sheriff’s Office deputy, and four civilians suffered gunshot wounds during the incident.

A SWAT team took the subject into custody inside the building approximately five hours later.

Salted Meats on November 28, 2015 at 12:53 AM

So, how is this hard?

Everyone said initial 911 call came from PP. Release the 911 call, let’s hear it.

Heard that shooter opened fire on motorists from a parking lot (once was a vision center, then a strip mall in general, then the PP).

Heard another office suffered wounds.

Police confirmed it started at PP.

Had no prior info (even though the 911 call came from PP) that people were shot in PP, just cops and some random recounting of a man staggering out of a bullet riddled car, coasting (said one weird eye witness).

CNN hassled PP head to confirm it started and was directed toward PP, they declined despite pressure.

Suspect came into custody hours and hours later, no more references to the “items” he deposited everywhere, and only people outside the PP are harmed.

Still no name for the perpetrator.

WTAF people? What actually happened? At this point, I’m trusting the media even less that ever. We had more concrete data on victims/motive/shooter here in Chattanooga despite media’s reluctance to confirm it was terrorism. This should be their golden ticket, what’s the hold up? (Unless they are currently scrubbing the internet from any trace of the actual shooter.) lol

Lt. Hart described the victim as a 19-year-old white female. She told police she was sitting in the parking lot when a black male approached her car and asked to use her cell phone.

She gave him permission to use the phone and he entered her car. Police say the suspect told her he had a gun and forced her to drive to an ATM and withdraw money.

Investigators say the suspect forced the victim to drive to an abandoned property on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard where he raped her.

No kidding.

This doesn’t have the hallmarks of an anti-abortion event. If someone were going to “enact justice” against the perpetrators of abortion, it would most likely be planned, methodical. This has more the appearance of someone snapping. The guy is 57 – you don’t suddenly decide to do something radical about abortion at that age, without a precipitating event. If PP was the target, I’m betting there’s a gf involved, or a family member – they were hurt, angry about his grandkid being aborted, etc.
Otherwise, it was a robbery gone wrong, or another crazy person out to make a name for themselves.

I’m still waiting to hear more: who/where the victims were, etc.

OK, one note: The clinic is about two football fields away from the shopping center where all the lockdowns were occurring. It’s closer to an apartment complex on the other side of Centennial, but no mention of that being locked down. It’s immediately adjacent to a couple of other facilities (I think they’re medical).

Were the cops crazy for locking down that area? Were the other facilities closed? Or is there something else to this?

Here is a google street view, with the clinic on the right (the white building), and the Chase bank is out of view to the left.

MSNBC going hard with “even though we don’t know the motive, Colorado Springs has a lot of conservative Christian churches…” They’re also blaming the undercover videos… “We don’t know… BUT”

Planned Parenthood has a safe room, so this must be terrorism. Every one of these commentators are going hard on this. “Equal to foreign terrorism…”

Now it’s “war on women” and “white terrorism.” Fort Hood, not terrorism. Colorado Springs “clearly meets the definition of terrorism.”

Even if we find out this guy had a text message from Focus on the Family giving him instructions, their reporting on this, at this point, is horribly irresponsible.

Predictable, but scary.

Greetings. This is President Barack Obama here to urge that we immediately jump to the conclusion that this shooting is motivated by some white Christian folks who have a problem with allowing the god Moloch to be appeased by the sacrifice of infants on the altar of greed and convenience.

Preventing such sacrifices is not who we are. Our values as Americans demand that we stand as one and rally behind Planned Parenthood, even though it appears at this juncture that they were not the target of the gunman.

And speaking of guns, isn’t it time that all of you misguided folks out there who believe in the Second Amendment beat your rifles into plowshares and start cultivating marijuana instead?

By forsaking the shooting range to begin growing marijuana you will be helping yourselves and our country properly prepare for and adapt to my many transformative plans yet to be fully implemented.

Think of how much happier you will be with a head full of doobie smoke when my millions of peace-loving Syrian refugees seize you and frog-march you to the nearest chopping block.

Think of how mellow all will seem as the towering mushroom clouds rise above our cities when the black-market nuclear devices brought unchecked into the country by the refugees are at last detonated.

Think of how laid back your women will be as goodwill ambassadors from ISIS help them explore the delights of sexual healing through multiple forced penetrations.

Which leads me back full circle to the topic of my message to you today — Planned Parenthood.

Their services will be needed more than ever after your women find themselves in the family way following their encounters with the sexual healer ambassadors of ISIS.

Join me in supporting Planned Parenthood and confiscating all firearms, except for those that a well-regulated ISIS militia roaming our streets might need.

Until next time, this is Barack Obama signing off with my heartiest Allahu akbar ever!

Has anyone blamed Climate Change yet?

I guess you only get to play that card if he doesn’t fit the narrative.

Yeah, you’re right, Nessman. Far-Right Gun Nuts always surrender to cops instead of committing suicide by cop.

F- #1.

And Far-Right Gun Nuts always list themselves as females on their voter registrations, even though they are males:

Must suck, having to go thru life with the intelligence of a hockey stick. But thanks again for more concrete proof of why the Democrats lost the college graduate vote in 2012, and will do so again next year!

Why is it taking so long to get any specifics on the motivations of the shooter? I could understand if he was badly injured and in the hospital, or if pieces had to be cobbled together because he was dead. But he walked out uninjured, surely he’s provided some insight as to why he did what he did. Hopefully he won’t “commit suicide” before he can be interviewed.

Uneducated leftist emotionalism.

Shooting at Colorado Springs, Colo., Planned Parenthood
5m
Planned Parenthood tweets ‘Care – no matter what. #StandWithPP’ along with statement from president Cecile Richards: ‘We have a saying at Planned Parenthood: “These doors stay open.” It means we don’t back down because of protesters or violent extremists or anyone else, and it means we are a safe, supportive, welcoming environment for all people who need high-quality reproductive health care’ – @PPFA

From Fox News (Bold is mine):

Police say Robert Lewis Dear, 57, killed three people, including a police officer, and wounded nine others after he stormed the clinic in Colorado Springs Friday wearing a trench coat and carrying a rifle, possibly an AK-47.

Dear left few clues about his motive and those who knew him told the Associated Press Saturday he seemed to have few religious or political leanings.

“If you talked to him, nothing with him was very cognitive — topics all over place,” said James Russell, who lives a few hundred feet from Dear in Black Mountain. A cross made of twigs hung Saturday on the wall of Dear’s pale yellow shack.

Grade A Nut Job. Sounds like the Unabomber’s neighbor if you read the article.
Sounds like PP was a fort he used to shoot at folks, mostly cops.

Good question … how many people were killed at planned parenthood on Friday by the shooter and how many people were killed at planned parenthood on Friday by the doctors?

Ruckus_Tom on November 28, 2015 at 8:17 PM

Sure it is. It’s just a murder you feel is morally justified.

triple on November 27, 2015 at 10:25 PM

See, this is called creating your own definition, and you simply can’t do it. It’s a bug that the Left always considers a feature, attempting to change the functioning lexicon of society for their own ends.

Judicially applied execution is not murder, it is punishment. You are completely welcome to disapprove of it, but you are not welcome to re-define it. And before you claim that any time one human kills another it is murder, you need to realize that you will have echoed the pro-life case.

Which you will deny, since you are pro-abortion.

Now, when a life is terminated for convenience, it is well and truly murder, because it is NOT punishment, it is not established by an impartial panel of citizens, and it is always done for selfish reasons. If ever there were a clear definition of murder, abortion fits, but execution does not.

Use the language correctly, or a useful conversation cannot be had.

triple on November 28, 2015 at 6:33 PM

“Apparently” is the key word there, since there has been no official confirmation. Also, if he was interested in hurting PP… why would PP be able to say “thank Molech that no patients or staff were hurt“?

Who was giving me shit about saying this would probably be a right wing crazy again?
