Fillmore and Centennial shopping center now under a shelter in place status due to an active shooter.
An officer has reportedly been shot in the hand, while police continue their search for a shooting suspect near the Planned Parenthood on Centennial.
Springs police are advising the public to stay away from the Centennial and Fillmore area.
Now, some media are amending their initial reports to say ‘near’, rather than ‘at’ Planned Parenthood. Of course, it’s also near many other stores and businesses, it’s a mall! It’s also not clear whether the shooter has been detained as was earlier noted, as police continue to say the area is not secure and there is a report they are not sure where the shooter is.
According to the NY Times, the gunman was apparently shooting at passing cars. According to the Gazette, the only reported connection so far to the Planned Parenthood is that someone made a call about the incident from the Planned Parenthood, otherwise there is no indication of a connection to Planned Parenthood. Police have reportedly said there is no connection.
Planned Parenthood releases statement on shooting.
Three are reported dead now, including one officer has died. R.I.P.
The people injured and killed may have happened not in the Planned Parenthood, as there were reports of the shooter shooting at police and cars outside in a nearby area. Police indicated this was spread over multiple locations.
UPDATE Officer identified…
University of Colorado-Colorado Springs officer Garrett Swasey, 44, was killed while responding to the active shooter situation.
