Q club Attack: Five people were killed in a mass shooting late Saturday night at a gay nightclub in Colorado, USA, and 18 people were injured in the incident.
The police received a call about a shooting from Club Q at 11.57 p.m. This was the sixth incident of gun violence in the US this month. Earlier, the whole country was already shocked by the incident of the school shooting in Uvalde Texas.
Club Q termed the incident as a hate crime against the gay community and said that it was done by some anti-gay extremists.
Club Q is a gay and lesbian club, where the ‘Drag Diva drag show’ was held on Saturdays.
The club wrote on Facebook that we are deeply hurt by this attack on our community. Our thoughts are with the families of the injured and the deceased.
The US Air Force Academy is in Colorado Springs. The population here is 480,000. American Evangelicalism has been quite dominant here. Earlier in November 2015, three people were murdered outside the Planned Parenthood clinic. These people were anti-abortion and wanted this clinic closed.
The motive for Saturday’s firing is not clear yet, but prima facie it appears to be a hate crime. Q Club also has the same allegation. The LGBT community has equal rights in American society, but some extremists continue to commit hate crimes against the gay community.
According to The Associated Press/USA Today database on mass killings in the U.S.
There have been 523 mass killing incidents in the US since 2006. In this, 2,727 people have lost their lives till November 19, 2022
