    Listening to live report on CBS news live saying that it's confirmed there are people inside with the shooter, some injured. 3 officers have been injured. Praying for everyone involved. Suspect is Male and they believe they know where he is located inside the facility.

    A gunman holed up in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs Friday opened fire repeatedly through windows, injuring at four people, including two police officers, according to police and local media reports.

    Mike Violette, executive director of the Colorado Fraternal Order of Police, said on Twitter, "Shooter barricaded in planned parenthood & multiple victims."

    The injured police officer was shot in the hand, and a second officer was also wounded, law enforcement authorities told KKTV.

    The shooter was described as a gunman in a long coat with a hunting-type hat.

    "Rounds are coming through the window," one police officer told the dispatcher on the police scanner.

    1:01 p.m.: One of the victims being loaded onto an ambulance yelled.

    12:54 p.m.: At least three officer are injured as well as multiple others. There are no estimates of the number injured or whether there are fatalities.

    The shooter is &#8220;contained,&#8221; according to Lt. Kirk Wilson, a Colorado Springs police spokesman. Officers are working to &#8220;extricate&#8221; an officer who is at the scene but police could not immediately reach him.

    12:52 p.m.: At least three officers have been hurt, according to a police commander on the scene.

    12:43 p.m.: Denise Speller, manager at a nearby haircut salon, said she heard roughly 10-20 gunshots in the span of less than five minutes. She said she saw a police cruiser and two officers outside near Chase Bank, not far from the Planned Parenthood facility. One of the officers appeared to fall to the ground and the other office knelt down to render aid, then tried to get the officer to safety behind the car, she said. Another officer told Speller to seek shelter inside the building.

    &#8220;We&#8217;re still pretty freaked out,&#8221; Speller said by phone. &#8220;We can&#8217;t stop shaking. For now we&#8217;re stuck back here not knowing.&#8221;

    12:38 p.m. The Mobile Command Center of the Colorado Springs Police and the Tactical Rescue unit from the El Paso County Sheriff's Office both are on scene. One officer asked colleagues to move because "we are in the line of fire."

    12:36 p.m.: Colorado Springs Police report that Centennial Boulevard is closed in both directions between Garden of the Gods Road and Fillmore Street.

    12:31 p.m.: Scanner traffic indicated at least two officers were down, one near a dumpster, and another taken by ambulance to a hospital.

    OMG this man must be an extremist of some kind. With the propane tanks all he has to do is undo the valves and ignite them and it will cause major damage and possibly multiple loss of life or serious injuries to anyone who is even a 100 feet or more. If those things blow the shrapnel will be flying everywhere. According to how many tanks he has it could be worse than what happened at the Boston Marathon.

    I hope everyone was able to escape this madman. I would hate to be a police officer and having to face someone who is this dangerous.

    I read three officers are already down.

    IMO

    The Colorado Springs Gazette reports that at least four people have been injured, and one person was lying dead in the parking lot.

    There are reports that the gunman is firing at passing cars.

    Officers from the Colorado Springs Police and Colorado State Patrol are on the scene with guns drawn pointed at the clinic.

    Police have issued a shelter-in-place order for a nearby shopping mall.

    I haven't read any other reports regarding the propane tanks except for that one report.

    BBM: There are conflicting reports of the shooter being "at" or "near" the planned parenthood facility. The fact that he is shooting at passing cars makes me wonder if this is about planned parenthood or just someone bent on mass casualties!

    CNN just reported tactical has penetrated the building and got "several" people out. Also that they used smoke and bang bombs after entering. No link yet, but according to Tom Fuentes.
