Club Q Shooter Pleads Guilty to Federal Hate Crimes Charges

HeadlineJun 20, 2024

In Colorado, the shooter who killed five people and injured more than a dozen others at a Colorado Springs LGBTQIA nightclub in 2022 has pleaded guilty to 74 federal charges including hate crimes. Prosecutors agreed not to pursue the death penalty in exchange for the deal, which will see the shooter sentenced to 55 concurrent life sentences without the possibility of parole. The shooter is already serving consecutive life sentences after pleading guilty to state murder charges last year.
