The shooting is now being investigated as a hate crime.
All five victims killed in a mass shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub in Colorado late Saturday night have been identified.
At least 19 were also injured after a gunman began shooting inside Club Q in Colorado Springs as soon as he walked in, Colorado Springs Police Chief Adrian Vasquez told reporters during a news conference Sunday morning.
Police identified the suspect as Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22. At least two people, whom authorities described as heroes, then confronted Aldrich and fought with him, which saved more lives, police said.
