Tranny Bar Shot Up

This is so sad, Fs in chat.

CBS News:

A 22-year-old gunman opened fire in a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, killing five people and leaving more than two dozen injured before he was subdued by “heroic” patrons and arrested by police who were on the scene within minutes, authorities said Sunday.

At a news conference Sunday morning, Colorado Springs Police Chief Adrian VasQuez identified the suspect as 22-year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich, who was being treated for injuries.

Describing the nightclub, Club Q, as “a safe haven for our LGBTQ citizens,” VasQuez said the suspect began shooting at patrons immediately after he entered the venue. As he moved further inside, at least two people confronted and fought him, stopping him from firing. The suspect used a “long rifle” and authorities found at least one other firearm when they arrived at the scene, according to the police chief.

City officials said 25 people in total were injured. Of those 25, at least seven were in critical condition, authorities said. Some were hurt trying to flee, and it was unclear if all of the victims were shot, a police spokesperson said.

Investigators were still determining a motive, and the attack was being investigated to see if it should be prosecuted as a hate crime, said El Paso County District Attorney Michael Allen. Charges against the suspect “will likely include first-degree murder,” he said.

Colorado Springs Mayor John Suthers said in a statement Sunday that “one or more patrons heroically intervened to subdue the suspect, and we praise those individuals who did so because their actions saved lives.”

 

So much of value was lost. What we need now are pride parades every day for the next six months.
