COLORADO SPRINGS PLANNED PARENTHOOD SHOOTER GOING TO COURT

Colorado Springs—The man accused in Friday’s bloody shooting rampage that left three people dead inside a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood clinic will be formally advised of the charges against him today. 57 year old Robert Lewis Dear goes before a judge for the first time this afternoon.  Investigators still don’t have a clear motive in the shootings that killed three people including a Colorado Springs police officer and two civilians, an Iraq war veteran and a mother of two.  Nine other people were injured in the shooting and sent to area hospitals.  Dear has been described as a ‘deranged recluse’ who rarely spoke to others.  If convicted of multiple counts of first degree murder, Dear could face the death penalty.
