Official: “no more baby parts” comment made by suspected gunman in Planned Parenthood attack

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – A law enforcement official says the suspect in the attack at a Planned Parenthood clinic made a comment about “no more baby parts” after his arrest.

The official could not elaborate about the comment. Planned Parenthood said in a statement Saturday that witnesses said the gunman was motivated by his opposition to abortion.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation. Police have not disclosed a motive for the attack.

Police say 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear killed three people during the shooting rampage and hours-long standoff at the clinic in Colorado Springs on Friday. Dear is in custody and is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.
