(Reuters) – The suspected gunman who shot & wounded several people near a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs on Friday is still shooting from inside the building, a police spokeswoman said.

“This is still very active. We do have the individual inside the building & as of a minute ago … he was actively shooting at us,” the spokeswoman, Lieutenant Catherine Buckley, told reporters approximately three hours after the first shots were reported.

She said there were people inside the building & police “have been affecting rescues from that building” as well as a nearby strip mall.

p>Buckley, whose comments were broadcast by Fox News, said police had “encountered one individual” & did not know anything approximately his possible motives.
