At least one police officer has been injured in an ongoing active shooter situation at a Colorado Springs branch of Planned Parenthood Friday afternoon.
Lt. Catherine Buckley, a Colorado Springs police spokeswoman, said she was trying to confirm other details in the fluid situation.
“We still have a gunman that is out there,” she said.
The city’s fire department tweeted about the situation at around 11:45 a.m. The branch is located at 3480 Centennial Blvd., just east of the Garden of the Gods.
“The area is NOT secure,” police said in a tweet.
“We were looking out the window and we had an officer wave us back inside,” said Brigitte Wolfe, who works at Jun Japanese Restaurant next door. “They have everything blocked off.”
Wolfe said there are roughly a dozen police vehicles at the scene. She said officers have guns drawn and a re facing the Planned Parenthood branch.
