Iraq War Veteran Identified as Victim in Planned Parenthood Shooting

11 News has confirmed with family members that Iraq War Veteran Ke'Arre M. Stewart was one of the three people killed in the shootings near the Planned Parenthood building in Colorado Springs on Friday.

Stewart's sister said he was outside the clinic talking on his cell phone outside because he didn't have any service. That's when he was shot. She says he ran back inside and warned everyone about the shooter and told them to get down. She said he called 911 before he died.

He was stationed at Fort Hood from 2005-2007 and was deployed to Iraq for a year in 2005 to 2006.

He later served for a short time at Fort Carson before retiring from the Army in 2013.

Stewart's wife said all the family wants right now is justice for Stewart.

"I was crushed, it was unreal. Almost half a million people here and it happened to be my brother out of all these people," said Leyonte Chandler, Stewart's brother.

Chandler followed his big brother to Colorado after Ke'Arre Stewart was stationed at Fort Carson.

"When he got back to Colorado Springs, he wanted to go ahead and retire. He loved this city and he wanted to stay," said Chandler.

While in the Springs, Stewart reunited with his Army buddy, Tony Fisher.

They spent Thanksgiving together, the day before he was murdered.

"We ate dinner and y'know had a nice fellowship telling old Army stories kind of like Army people do," said Fisher.

Just a day later, everything would change when Stewart was shot and killed outside of the Planned Parenthood Office.

"As a soldier, when you leave war that's when you're supposed to quit losing soldiers. Y'know your buddies and stuff. You get old and fat and retire and talk about grand kinds eventually, but he was 29-years-old," said Fisher.

"The guy didn't know [Ke'Arre], and he didn't know the guy. I forgive him though," said Chandler.

Stewart's wife said he leaves behind his children, two daughters, 11 and six years old, whose lives will now never be the same.
