US authorities have released the name of the gunman who opened fire at a gay club in Colorado on Saturday night, killing at least five people and injuring 18 others.

This is 22-year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich who is in custody and is being treated for injuries.

Two “heroic” people at the club stopped the attacker, police said.

Club Q, Colorado wrote on Facebook that they are “devastated by the senseless attack on our community.”

Police have not released a motive for the attacker but said the investigation will look into whether it was a hate crime and whether more people were involved.

In its Google listing, Club Q describes itself as “a gay and lesbian-oriented adult nightclub that hosts theme nights such as karaoke, drag shows and DJs.”
