At least five people were killed and 18 others injured in a mass shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub on Saturday in Colorado Springs, Colorado, police say.

Authorities received numerous 911 calls beginning at 11:57 p.m. local time and responded to the scene at Club Q, Colorado Springs Police Lt. Pamela Castro said.

“They located an individual we believe is the suspect inside,” Castro said. “At this point, the suspect is being treated, but is in custody.”

Castro did not say whether the suspect was included in the count of those injured in the shooting.
