COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  — A law enforcement official says the suspect in the attack at a Planned Parenthood clinic made a comment about "no more baby parts" after his arrest.

The official could not elaborate about the comment. Planned Parenthood said in a statement Saturday that witnesses said the gunman was motivated by his opposition to abortion.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation. Police have not disclosed a motive for the attack.

Police say 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear killed three people during the shooting rampage and hours-long standoff at the clinic in Colorado Springs on Friday. Dear is in custody and is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday.

Fellow University of Colorado-Colorado Springs officers are remembering their fallen comrade.

A vigil was held Saturday for slain officer Garrett Swasey. Swasey was among the three killed in the shooting.

The 44-year-old officer was the first of three victims to be identified. The father of two was also a pastor at a local church and a former championship ice skater.

Growing up, he trained with Nancy Kerrigan.

The other two victims are expected to be identified Monday after autopsies are completed.

Nine other people, including five police officers were injured in the shooting. All are in good condition and are expected to recover.

The regional head of Planned Parenthood says none of the clinic's 15 employees at the clinic Friday were hurt.

The shooting is being investigated by state and local authorities as well as the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.
