COLORADO, November 20, 2022—-the Police in Colorado Springs are investigating whether the shooting at a Club Q late Saturday night was a hate crime. “The motive of the crime is part of the investigation and whether this was a hate crime is a part of that investigation,” Police Chief Adrian Vasquez said.
“There’s a lot of work to be done,” added Michael Allen, the district attorney for Colorado’s 4th Judicial District.
At this time, his office is serving in a supporting capacity, but in the next few days the case will be transferred to the DA for charges and additional suspects.
“I can promise you that the DA’s office will put together a strong team, and we will work tirelessly to achieve justice,” Allen said.
“Every person, regardless of who they are, has a right to be secure from fear and physical harm, and actions taken to strike fear in specific communities will not be tolerated in our community,” he added.
