Three people are dead after a shooting Friday at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs. One was an officer who worked for the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs said  Colorado Springs Police spokesperson Catherine Buckley. 

Nine other people, including five police officers, were injured but Buckley said they are in good condition. 

This comes after Colorado Springs police apprehended a suspect involved in the shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic. 

Police located the shooter using cameras in the building said Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers. From there, officers were able to shout to the suspect and get him to surrender, according to Buckley. It is not known if the suspect was shot. 

Police did not provide a motive or identity of the suspect.

They say the man brought a "long gun" as well as multiple items into the clinic. The scene will remain active while explosives officers investigate the other items. Buckley says the scene is complicated and will "take hours, possibly days" to process.

People who were in nearby buildings had been sheltering in place since earlier Friday afternoon. Now that the suspect has been apprehended, police have been helping  people leave.

In Denver, police have been stationed outside of the local Planned Parenthood office, reports the Denver Post. Police in the New York City area are also increasing security near Planned Parenthood offices there.
