Suspect in Club Q shooting arrested on suspicion of hate crimes, murder

The 22-year-old suspected of killing five and injuring 25 in a shooting at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs was arrested on suspicion of hate crime and murder charges, court records show.

Anderson Lee Aldrich is being held on suspicion of five counts of first-degree murder and five counts of bias-motivated crimes causing bodily injury in the Saturday shooting at Club Q, court records show. The charges are “arrest-only charges,” meaning prosecutors have not officially filed charges and the charges could change.

Prosecutors with the Fourth Judicial District Attorney’s Office requested that the arrest affidavit be sealed and hidden from public view.

“If the information supporting the arrest warrant affidavit was to be released, it could jeopardize the ongoing case investigation,” the request states.

Magistrate Amanda Philipps granted the request.

Aldrich was arrested at the club after patrons at the club detained him, police have said. He was hospitalized Sunday with injuries and does not appear in the El Paso County Jail inmate log.

Colorado Springs police declined on Sunday to speak about possible motives. They are expected to give an update on their investigation by noon Monday.

No court date has been set for Aldrich, the court records show.
