Robert Dear, the alleged shooter who opened fire at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood in November 2015, has again been ruled incompetent to stand trial for the fatal shooting.

Dear, who has claimed responsibility for the shooting in which a police officer and two civilians were killed, has been mentally assessed every 90 days for the last four years. He has been known for bizarre behavior during his brief appearances in the courtroom over that time, including renouncing his attorney and attempting to represent himself before the court.

Prior to the shooting, Dear had previously targeted a Planned Parenthood clinic, according to his ex-wife, putting glue in the locks of the building.
