Planned Parenthood shooter says he didn’t plan attack

Denver — The man who admits killing three people at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic says the shooting was spur-of-the-moment.

In a Wednesday phone call from jail, Robert Lewis Dear tells KCNC-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1J3YsyU) he didn’t plan the Nov. 27 shooting, which also left nine injured. Dear says he believes FBI agents were following him that morning and they tipped off employees that he was headed to the clinic.

An FBI spokeswoman wouldn’t immediately comment on Dear’s statements. He says he targeted the organization because it’s “murdering little babies.”

Prosecutors have charged the 57-year-old Dear with 179 counts of crimes including first-degree murder, attempted murder and assault.

During a court appearance, Dear declared himself a “warrior for the babies” and said he was guilty. A judge has ordered him to undergo a mental competency exam.
