Club Q shooting suspect is non-binary, defense attorneys say

The man suspected of killing five and wounding 18 after opening fire at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs is non-binary, their defense attorney wrote in court filings Tuesday.

Joseph Archambault and Michael Bowman, the state’s public defenders for suspect Anderson Lee Aldrich, filed a series of motions Tuesday and included a footnote about Aldrich’s identity.

“Anderson Aldrich is non-binary,” the footnote states. “They use they/them pronouns and for all formal applications they will be addressed as Mx. Aldrich.”

Aldrich has been taken into custody on suspicion of murder and bias-motivated crimes in connection with the shooting at Club Q late Saturday night.
