Downing COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Reuters) - Police on Friday swarmed an area around a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Colorado Springs, where a gunman opened fire, injuring three officers and an undetermined number of civilians, police and hospital officials said. City police said in a Twitter message about two hours after the shooting was first reported that the situation remained unstable, contrary to an ABC News report, attributed to a police commander, that the suspect was thought to have been "contained." "This is an active situation," a police department spokeswoman, Lieutenant Catherine Buckley, told CNN, adding that law enforcement had yet to confirm the gunman's location. She said police also were not sure that shooting had any connection to Planned Parenthood and that circumstances surrounding the gunfire remained unclear. CBS News reported that a gunman fired shots upon entering the clinic, which was guarded by security, and that law enforcement officials were concerned about the possibility explosives being involved. At least three officers and an unknown number of civilians were injured in the shooting, the Colorado Springs Police Department said on Twitter. A spokeswoman for Penrose-St. Francis Medical Center in Colorado Springs confirmed the hospital received three patients from the shooting but the nature and extent of their injuries were not immediately provided. At the outset of the situation, police said in a Twitter post that a call for assistance referred to a person firing a gun in the city's northwest side, on Centennial Boulevard, where the Planned Parenthood center is located. Colorado gunman still shooting from inside clinic, police say The facility provides abortions, screening for sexually transmitted diseases, pregnancy testing and other services, according to its website. The clinic was open for business on Friday, according to Cathy Alderman, a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. "At this time, our concern is for the safety of our patients, staff and law enforcement," Vicki Cowart, president of Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, said in a statement. As in much of the rest of the country, abortion is a divisive issue in the politically competitive state of Colorado, figuring prominently in attack ads during last year’s hard-fought Senate race between incumbent Democrat Mark Udall and Republican challenger Cory Gardner, the winner of the election. The Colorado Springs clinic has been the target of repeated protests and in recent years moved to its current location, which has been derided as a "fortress" by abortion foes. Hundreds of protesters picketed in front of the clinic in August as part of a push by abortion opponents to cut off public funding for Planned Parenthood, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette. One man was charged with trespassing in 2012 after flouting as many as 30 warnings to keep of clinic property, the paper said Early police reports painted a chaotic picture of the situation.

Two hospitals in the area reported receiving a total of nine patients from the shooting, but a police spokeswoman said not all of those injured could immediately be transported from the scene, suggesting some of the victims might still be trapped inside the clinic. Police swarmed the area around the building after an emergency call reporting shots fired at about 11:30 a.m. Mountain Time (1830 GMT), and officers ultimately confronted the suspect inside the building, said Lieutenant Catherine Buckley, the police department spokeswoman. "The officers inside the building have encountered the individual," she said in a briefing to reporters carried live on CNN. "They were exchanging gunfire." Buckley said four officers had been hurt in the shooting, as well as an unknown number of other people, but there was no immediate information on the nature or extent of their injuries. She also said police had so far confronted only one gunman in the clinic, which lies on the northwest side of Colorado Springs, about 70 miles (112 km) south of Denver. About an hour later, live television footage aired by CNN showed several people being escorted safely from the building into police vehicles. CBS News reported that a gunman fired shots upon entering the clinic, which was guarded by security, and that law enforcement officials were concerned about the possibility of explosives being involved. In an account published by the Colorado Springs Gazette newspaper, a local man told police on the scene that his daughter works at the clinic and was "in the line of fire," to which officers replied, "We're trying to get her out." The suspect was armed with a high-powered rifle, the Gazette said police told the man. The FBI and agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were assisting local law enforcement investigators.

The Colorado Springs clinic has been the target of repeated protests, and in recent years moved to its current location, which has been derided as a "fortress" by abortion foes. At least eight clinic workers have been killed in violent attacks on abortion providers since 1977, according to the National Abortion Federation - most recently in 2009, when abortion doctor George Tiller was shot to death at church in Wichita, Kansas. Clinics have reported nearly 7,000 incidents of trespassing, vandalism, arson, death threats, and other forms of violence since then, according to the abortion-rights group. Hundreds of protesters picketed in front of the Colorado Springs clinic in August as part of a push by abortion opponents to cut off public funding for Planned Parenthood, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette.

The city, home to the U.S. Air Force Academy and the U.S. Olympic training center, is also a hub for conservative Christian groups such as Focus on the Family that strongly oppose abortion. The attack in Colorado sent jitters across the country. The New York City Police Department reported it had redeployed some of its "critical response" vehicles to Planned Parenthood locations throughout the city. However, it said there were no specific threats to those sites at this time. (Reporting by Daniel Wallis in Denver; Additional reporting by Dan Wallis in Denver, Dan Whitcomb in Los Angeles, Eric M.
