UPDATE: Five dead, several injured in Club Q shooting

Several people are dead and several others injured after an apparent shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs.

FOX21’s Tyler Bouldin tweeted updates from the scene and said CSPD Lt. Pamela Castro said the shooting happened late Saturday night, Nov. 19, at the Q Club, with the first call coming in shortly before midnight Sunday.

While the investigation is in its early stages, police said 18 people have been injured so far and five others have died. Several people were taken to the hospital.

“Hospitals are helping us notify the families of the injured…every hospital has officers with all the injured,” Lt. Castro said.

CSPD appears to have located one person they believe to be the suspect and he is currently in the hospital. Police said the FBI is also on the scene assisting with the investigation.

A spokesman for the Colorado Springs Fire Department (CSFD) said 34 firefighters and 11 ambulances were called; some of them had to transport two victims at once, sometimes three. CSFD thanked AMR and the many county agencies for their assistance.

“Unfortunately, these are events that we train for, with what we call ‘mass casualties,’ which is why we’ve had such a big response,” said Capt. Mike Smaldino, CSFD. “Working with the police, we were able to get everyone out of here pretty quickly and get them to the hospital where they would have a better chance of being injured.”

Police are asking people and drivers to avoid the area of ​​North Academy Boulevard, which is currently closed in both directions between North Carefree and Village Seven Road.

CSPD tweeted that it would conduct additional press conference at 8 a.m. Sunday, where more information will be released.

Police are asking anyone with a cell phone or dash cam to contact CSPD at (719) 444-7000. Police are also asking any additional witnesses not interviewed by the officer to contact CSPD as well.
