Colorado shooting suspect said 'no more baby parts': reports
The man accused of opening fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado and killing three people said "no more baby parts" while he was being arrested, NBC News and other media reported, citing unidentified law enforcement sources. The utterance from suspect Robert Lewis Dear, 57, apparently referenced the organization's health services, which include abortion, and its role in delivering fetal tissue to researchers. It could hint at a possible motive for the rampage on Friday, though NBC, citing sources, said investigators had not confirmed any motivation.
