COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.: The latest on the shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic (all times local):
A judge has sealed court documents for a man accused of killing three people, including a police officer, at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs.
Acting at the request of prosecutors, Judge Stephen J. Sletta issued the order sealing the arrest warrant for 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear and the search warrant for his home. The order was made available Monday after being issued Friday, the day of the attack.
Such documents detail evidence gathered by investigators that justify arresting suspects and searching property.
Prosecutors said making them public would jeopardize the ongoing investigation.
The judge agreed to keep the records sealed until the termination of the case or a further order of the court.
The man accused of opening fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs is set to make his first court appearance Monday.
Fifty-seven-year-old Robert Lewis Dear is scheduled to appear at 1:30 p.m. before a judge in a video hearing. He’ll be advised of the charges that could be filed against him.
Dear is accused of killing a police officer and two civilians — an Iraq war veteran and a mother of two — who were accompanying separate friends to the clinic. The rampage touched off an hours-long standoff and shootout Friday that also left nine other people in the hospital.
