On November 27th tragedy struck Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs. The shooter was apprehended that day but not before many were injured and lives were lost.
Three people, (a police officer and two civilians dead) and another nine were injured during the nearly five hours before the shooter surrendered.
The shooter had been identified as 57-year-old, Robert Lewis Dear, although his motifs behind the shooting had not been released.
“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 of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.
Although the events were almost a month ago, our hearts and thoughts are still with the victims of this horrendous event.
