Colorado club shooting: 'Hero' Army veteran who stopped suspected gunman says he feels 'no joy'By Amanda Caroline • November 22, 2022 • 47
He said he grabbed the suspect's pistol from him and began "wailing" on him
A U.S. Army veteran who stopped a suspected gunman from fatally shooting more people after he allegedly killed five people at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado says he isn't a hero, and he's mourning the people who died, including his daughter's boyfriend.
"There are five people I could not help, one of which was family to me," Richard Fierro said during a press conference outside his home Monday night.
"I feel no joy. That guy is still alive... and my family is not," he said, referring to his daughter's boyfriend, Raymond Green Vance, who was among those killed in the shooting.
Five people were killed and 17 others were injured from gunshot wounds after a suspect, Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, allegedly began shooting as soon as he walked into Club Q in Colorado Springs on Saturday night, according to police. Aldrich is facing five counts of murder and five counts of bias-motivated crime causing bodily injury, which is Colorado's hate crime law.
