A gunman stormed a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Colorado Springs Friday and opened fire with a rifle in an attack that left three people dead and nine others injured, authorities said.The dead included one police officer and two civilians, Colorado Springs Police Chief Peter Carey told reporters about an hour after the suspect had been captured.All nine surviving victims -- five police officers and four civilians -- were listed in good condition at area hospitals, Carney said.The suspect first engaged in a gun battle with police but ultimately surrendered to officers inside the building about five hours after the start of the violence, which played out under a steady snowfall in Colorado's second-largest city.Police declined to discuss the gunman's motivations.A city police spokeswoman, Lieutenant Catherine Buckley, said it took officers a number of hours to establish communication with the suspect before he gave himself up.Police swarmed the area around the building after an emergency call reporting shots fired at about 11:30 a.m. Mountain Time (1830 GMT), and officers ultimately confronted the suspect inside the building, Buckley said.
