Colorado Springs Suspect Charged with 305 Counts of Murder, Hate Crimes
Police have provided limited information to the public about the investigation
Anderson Lee Aldrich, who is accused of fatally shooting five people and wounding 17 others at a Colorado Springs night club last month, was formally charged with 305 counts of murder, hate crimes and assault Tuesday.
Aldrich, who appeared in court, allegedly entered the club shortly before midnight armed with a pistol and an assault-style rifle and began firing. Then attack ended when other patrons subdued the assailant, authorities say. Aldrich did not speak at Tuesday’s hearing.
