Claremont Planned Parenthood clinic damaged in hatchet attack reopens

The Associated Press

CLAREMONT (AP) — A Planned Parenthood clinic in New Hampshire has reopened nearly six weeks after police say it was badly damaged by a hatchet-wielding juvenile.

The Claremont clinic reopened Monday, three days after police in Colorado Springs, Colorado, said a man opened fire on a Planned Parenthood clinic there, killing a police officer and two civilians.

Claremont Police Chief Alexander Scott says officers are cognizant of what happened and are keeping an extra eye on the facility. He says the clinic has installed internal security upgrades since the Oct. 21 vandalism.

Police had said the juvenile used the hatchet to destroy computers, plumbing fixtures, phones and medical equipment inside the clinic. Police have not released details on the suspect, citing juvenile privacy rules.

Messages left for a Planned Parenthood spokeswoman weren't immediately returned Monday.
