The father of Waianae woman Jennifer Markovsky said that his daughter was among the three victims killed in the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood shooting on Friday.

John Ah-King, who told The Denver Post that his 36-year-old daughter Jennifer Markovsky, was accompanying a friend to a Planned Parenthood clinic that day when a gunman opened fire. He described Markovsky as a kind-hearted, lovable person with two children.

“I was waiting to see you soon, I’m going to miss you,” Ah-King wrote in a post on Facebook mourning his daughter.

According to Markovsky’s Facebook page, she was a 1997 graduate of Waianae High School.

On Nov. 27, 57-year-old Robert Lewis Dear open fired at the clinic, killing three people and injuring nine others.

Among the victims was 44-year-old University of Colorado police officer Garrett Swasey. The Associated Press has not yet confirmed the identity of the third victim.
