US: A cop, two people killed in birth control clinic shootout in Colorado

London: An officer and two people were after a shootout inside a 'Planned Parenthood' clinic in Colorado Springs took place and the gunman has surrendered.

It was a rather ordinary day at the clinic with patients waiting for appointment and the staff moving about when the shooting unfolded.

Gunshots were first reported at the Planned Parenthood clinic at 11.38am local time and the suspect was believed to be carrying a 'rifle' and had bags with him possibly carrying ammunition.

Evacuation began as within the hours the police stormed inside the clinic and convinced the gunman to surrender.
