The Latest on the Latest News about the Planned Parenthood of Northern Virginia shooting:

9:00 a.m.

The wife of a former guard who was wounded when gunman Robert Lewis Dear entered a Florida Planned Parenthood office says she is “so incredibly grateful” for those who helped save her husband.

Karen Dear on Friday said her husband, Greg, had been gravely injured as one of a number of first responders to the Nov. 27 attack in Pensacola. He has since returned to work.

She says in a statement that she hopes prosecutors will hold the gunman responsible for his crime and that he will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Greg Dear suffered gunshot wounds to his thigh and elbow. The gunman opened fire on him and others as they arrived at the scene of the shooting.

A former guard at Planned Parenthood in Virginia says he was among those who were shot that day.

Master Sgt. Christopher Crawford said in a statement on Friday that he was one of the first paramedics to the scene in Sterling, Virginia. He said he was hospitalized overnight after he was shot in the leg. He said he went on to work on Christmas Eve.

3:25 a.m.

A former guard at a Planned Parenthood office was among the first people shot in the Nov. 27 shooting in Florida.

Police say a man named Robert Lewis Dear opened fire at the offices of the women’s health organization in a suburb of Pensacola, Florida. He died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Gregory Dear is a security guard for the nonprofit Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund in Virginia. Karen Dear says her husband was in Pensacola, Florida, and involved in his role as a security guard to “protect citizens.”

Gregory Dear was taken to a Florida hospital after being shot in the thigh and elbow. Karen Dear says he has since recovered and returned to work.

7:50 p.m.

A man who opened fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Florida talked to his mother by phone shortly before the rampage, according to what she told investigators.

Heather Smith told investigators she received a call from her son, Robert Lewis Dear, shortly before 1 p.m. Nov. 27, according to an affidavit released Friday. Smith told investigators that Dear told her “he had been waiting for a friend for 20 minutes and that the friend was now there.”

Dear said a man with a gun had brought him to the building, and that after shooting a person with the friend, he would go to another area, Smith told investigators.

The affidavit doesn’t indicate what Dear said or what he was intending to do, but it does indicate that Dear had been on a roll for a month in terms of his threats. He had threatened fellow church members with his rhetoric in the weeks leading up to the attack.
