Five people are dead and 18 others have been injured in a shooting at a LGBTQ+ nightclub in the 3400 block of North Academy Boulevard, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department (CSPD).
At about 11:57 p.m., officers received numerous calls about an active shooter at Club Q, according to CSPD Public Information Officer, Lieutenant Pamela Castro.
At the scene, Castro told our partners at KRDO that officers immediately located the suspect inside the bar. That suspect has since been taken to a hospital for medical attention and is in custody. It’s unclear what those injuries are, however, Castro said this shooting did not involve officers.
