The Colorado Springs Police Department released the booking photos of accused gay bar Club Q mass shooter Anderson Lee Aldrich on Wednesday. The photos show the tall, heavy-set 22-year-old Aldrich with severe bruises and swelling on his face and neck from a beating by two patrons that stopped the attack after Aldrich murdered five and wounded seventeen people Saturday night with a semi-automatic rifle in just a few minutes.
Aldrich was hospitalized after the shooting and was released to jail on Tuesday and is being held without bond.
Aldrich appeared via jail remote on Wednesday for a preliminary court hearing looking dazed and drowsy.
Aldrich’s attorney filed a notice with the court Tuesday night that Aldrich is binary, uses they/them pronouns and should be addressed as Mx. Aldrich.
Aldrich comes from a broken home with both parents–porn star dad, unstable mother–living troubled lives. Last year Aldrich was arrested but not prosecuted for a bomb threat against his mother. Aldrich legally changed his name as a teenager and was the target of intense online bullying.
In court documents filed in Texas, his then guardians used he/him pronouns when Aldrich was a young teenager.
