The man accused of killing three people at a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, Colorado, reportedly admitted his guilt in one of more than a dozen outbursts in court Wednesday.

57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear formally heard the 179 felony counts he’s faced with following a Nov. 27 shooting rampage.

A reporter said Dear repeatedly interrupted the proceedings, at one point saying, "I’m a warrior for the babies.” Authorities also said Dear told them "no more baby parts" after his arrest. (Video via KMGH

Dear said he’s guilty and that a trial is unnecessary. He is being held without bond. Prosecutors haven’t said if they’ll seek the death penalty.

The Nov. 27 shooting injured nine and killed three people: police officer Garrett Swasey, mother of two Jennifer Markovsky and Iraq War veteran Ke’Arre Stewart.
