Clinic reopens after shooting

BRAINERD, Minn. -- A Planned Parenthood clinic reopened Monday, five days after it was damaged by gunfire.

Five or six shots were fired into the building July 4, damaging the front door, windows, inside walls and ceilings. No one was in the clinic at the time of the shooting.

"We will try and keep it as close to business as usual and serve the community," said Jennifer Ronneberg, who manages the clinic.

The clinic serves about 50 patients daily, administering health checkups, cancer checks, birth control and emergency contraception. It does not perform abortions.
