A 22-year-old man is in police custody after at least five people were shot and killed, and 25 injured, in a mass shooting at the Club Q gay club in Colorado Springs late Saturday night.
The first five charges are class 1 felonies, while the potential bias-motivated crime charges are class 5 felonies. Court records also show Aldrich is being held without bond in the case.
Aldrich was hospitalized on Sunday after the shooting and his first court date had not been set as of 9 a.m. Monday, according to court records. Records show a judge in the case also ordered the arrest warrant affidavit and application for the arrest warrant to be sealed “utnil completion of investigation in this case.”
Aldrich is accused of carrying out the shooting just before midnight Saturday at the LGBTQ+ nightclub in Colorado Springs, killing five people and injuring 25 others. The Colorado Springs police chief said Sunday Aldrich used a long rifle in the shooting and another weapon was also found at the nightclub.
Police have still not confirmed a motive in the case despite the arrest-only charges. But Club Q called the shooting a “hate attack” and officials said they would treat the investigation as one potentially involving a hate crime.
