So heartbreaking. The victims of the tragic Planned Parenthood shooting have been identified as a police officer and two innocent civilians following the Nov. 27 attack on the Colorado Springs, Colo., clinic. Get more information about the victims here.

The families of Jennifer Markovsky, and Ke’Arre Stewart, along with police officer Garrett Swasey are mourning the loss of their loved ones after Robert Lewis Dear, 59, opened fire on a Colorado Springs, Colo., Planned Parenthood clinic on Nov. 27. Their identities were revealed two days after the terrifying incident that ended their lives and injured nine others.

Both Jennifer and Ke’Arre were accompanying friends to the Planned Parenthood clinic when the gunman began shooting, while Garrett was on duty. Jennifer was 36, Ke’Arre was 29, and Garrett was 44, according to BuzzFeed.

To make matters even more heartbreaking, all three victims left behind children, with Jennifer and Garrett also being survived by spouses. Their family members have all taken to social media to mourn the loss of their loved ones.

“To my daughter Jennifer, I’m going to miss so much,” Jennifer’s father, John Ah-King, wrote on Facebook. “…Life was [too] short my beloved daughter, I was waiting to see you soon, I’m going to miss you, my [memories] of you will live on in my heart and mind.”

Ke’Arre’s brother Leyonte Ripkearrestewart Chandler posted pictures to his Facebook, mentioning that Ke’Arre was an Army veteran. “I just ask for help, love, and support of my family…especially for my mom.”

Kimberly Swasey Noveletsky, Garrett’s sister, announced his passing on her Facebook page, along with a sweet tribute to her sibling. “My brother was a hero in every sense of the word. He showed the world what kind of man he was yesterday when he made the ultimate sacrifice. His family already knew what most of you are just finding out. In the next few days my brothers name will be spoken often and his act of heroism talked about. But for those of us that knew and loved him his loss will be felt forever.”

Despite the tragedy Robert created, the shooter is currently in police custody after having a five hour standoff with authorities outside of the clinic. Our hearts go out to the victims’ families as they mourn such sad, shocking losses.
