Colorado Governor Jared Polis, who is openly gay, praised the “brave individuals who blocked the gunman” in a tweet, calling the shooting “horrific, sickening, and devastating.”

The Colorado Springs Police Department received an initial call about a shooting at the nightclub at 11:57 p.m., according to Lt. Pamela Castro, a spokesperson for the department. Officers entered the club and arrested a person they believed to be the gunman. According to Lieutenant Castro, the suspect was also injured and was being treated at a hospital.

Police said on Sunday that they were attempting to learn more about the suspected shooter in this deadly attack. An Anderson Lee Aldrich was arrested in June 2021 on charges of felony menacing and first-degree kidnapping, according to a press release from the El Paso County Sheriff’s office.
