Authorities say a 22-year-old gunman opened fire with a semiautomatic rifle at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs, killing five people and leaving 25 injured before he was subdued by “heroic” patrons. Mayor John Suthers said Sunday that the attack at Club Q ended when someone grabbed a handgun from the suspect, struck him with it, then held him down until police arrived. The club called it a “hate attack" but investigators were still determining a motive and whether it would be charged as a hate crime. The El Paso County district attorney said charges against suspect Anderson Lee Aldrich will likely include first-degree murder.

The Uvalde officer who was leading the city’s police department during the hesitant law enforcement response to the elementary school shooting that killed 19 children and two teachers has stepped down. City spokeswoman Gina Eisenberg says Lt. Mariano Pargas retired effectively immediately on Thursday afternoon after 18 years working for the city. He is the second police leader to leave law enforcement in the fallout since the May massacre, when hundreds of officers waited more than an hour to confront the gunman at Robb Elementary School. Pargas was running the department during the shooting because the chief was out of town.
