    Standoff ends with gunman at Planned Parenthood

    The shots sent people inside the clinic racing for cover. Jennifer Motolinia hid behind a table inside the clinic and called her brother, Joan, who said he heard multiple gunshots in the background.

    "She was telling me to take care of her babies because she could get killed," Joan Motolinia said of his sister, the mother of three.

    He rushed to the clinic but was frustrated because a police barricade kept him from getting close.

    "People were shooting for sure. I heard someone shooting. There was a lot of gunfire. She was calm, she was trying to hide from those people," he said.

    Police cordoned off the clinic, nearby medical offices and a shopping center. Authorities ordered everyone in the area to take shelter where they were.

    Denise Speller, manager of a nearby hair salon, said she heard as many as 20 gunshots in less than five minutes.

    She told The Gazette newspaper that she saw a police cruiser and two officers near a Chase Bank branch, not far from the Planned Parenthood facility.

    One of the officers appeared to fall to the ground and the other officer knelt down to help and then tried to get the officer to safety behind the car, she said. Another officer told Speller to seek shelter inside the building.

    "We're still pretty freaked out," Speller said by phone. "We can't stop shaking."

    Ambulances and police vehicles lined up at a nearby intersection and police told people via Twitter to stay away from the shooting scene because it was not secure.

    One police officer was killed during the shooting at the Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado, according to the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police.

    Planned Parenthood officials believe all staff and patients from their clinic are accounted for, said said Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.

    "We're still reaching out to confirm individuals, how they are. I believe no one of our staff was severely injured. I also believe at this time that none of our patients were injured," she told CNN.

    shooter's background

    according to ex-wife
    independent art dealer with a degree in public administration from a Midwestern college... mostly bought paintings of Charleston, S.C., street scenes, Old South plantation tableaus, magnolias and pictures of the Citadel campus. bought rights to paintings, commission 1,000 or so prints... father was a graduate of the Citadel..... generally conservative, but not obsessed with politics. He kept guns around the house for personal protection and hunting, and he taught their son to hunt doves, as many Southern fathers do. He believed that abortion was wrong, but it was not something that he spoke about much.....

    neighbor of Dear's mountain cabin
    "..was the kind of person "you had to watch out for." "He was a very weird individual. It's hard to explain, but he had a weird look in his eye most of the time."
    he looked more beaten down than the last time they had seen him, and that his beard was new — but that he was the same aloof, angry man they remembered.
    "'He complained about everything,' said another neighbor. He said he worked with the government, and everybody was out to get him, and he knew the secrets of the U.S.A. He said, "Nobody touch me, because I've got enough information to put the whole U.S. of A in danger."
