Colorado shooting suspect jailed without bail

Colorado Springs, Colo. ( Associated Press) – The alleged perpetrator of a Colorado Springs gay nightclub shooting that killed five people faces possible hate crime charges and will remain in jail without bail, a court ruled in a preliminary hearing Wednesday. .

Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, appeared on video from jail and was seen slumped over with injuries to his face and head. Aldrich apparently had to be encouraged to answer by his lawyers when Judge Charlotte Ankeny asked him for his name.

Aldrich was beaten up by the same Q Club patrons after he started shooting. He was discharged from the hospital on Tuesday. The motive for the shooting is still under investigation, but officials said the charges are likely homicide and a hate crime.

A hate crime requires showing that the shooter was motivated by prejudice toward the victims’ actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. The charges filed are preliminary and prosecutors have not yet filed formal charges. Aldrich’s defense attorney is attorney Joseph Archambault of the State Public Defender’s Office. These lawyers do not give statements to the press.

Advocates said Tuesday that the suspect’s gender is non-binary. In the documents submitted by the defence, he is described as MX. Aldrich, and has stated that she is gender non-binary. The documents refer to matters such as evidence gathering and not Aldrich’s gender identity.

Aldrich changed her name six years ago, as a teenager, after Aldrich’s mother filed a legal petition in Texas to “protect” herself from a father with a domestic violence criminal record.
