LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The man who allegedly shot and killed three people in Colorado Springs on Friday grew up in Louisville, the New York Times reports

Robert Dear is in custody after an hours-long standoff Friday. Dear shot and killed three people at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, and one of the victims was a responding police officer.

According to a New York Times article published Saturday, Dear "was born in Charleston and grew up in Louisville, Ky., but he had strong ties to South Carolina."
