Planned Parenthood reopens; renovations from November tragedy ongoing

       Damaged during the mass-murder shooting incident last November, the Planned Parenthood at 3480 Centennial Blvd. has recently reopened, although building renovations are ongoing.
       Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, provided this information in a late-February column in the Gazette.
       Metal fencing has been erected around the 11,700-square-foot building, which is set back from Centennial among a group of medically oriented buildings, north of the King Soopers shopping center off Fillmore Street.
       Two people inside Planned Parenthood - Ke'Arre Stewart and Jennifer Markovsky - were killed in the shooting, as well as a police officer, Garrett Swasey.
       Robert Dear was arrested and remains in custody. No trial date has been set.
