COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Police say a 22-year-old gunman opened fire at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, killing five people and leaving 25 injured before he was subdued by “heroic” patrons. Police Chief Adrian Vasquez says two firearms were found at the scene at Club Q after the Saturday night shooting. On its Facebook page, the club called it a “hate attack.” Investigators were still determining a motive, and the shooting was being investigated whether it should be prosecuted as a hate crime. The El Paso County district attorney said charges against the suspect, identified as Anderson Lee Aldrich, will likely include first-degree murder.
