On November 19, 2022, a 22-year-old gunman killed five people while they were at an LGBTQ bar called Club Q in Colorado Springs. It is Daniel Aston, Kelly Loving, Ashley Paugh, Derrick Rump and Raymond Green Vance who lost their lives for this hate crime. At least 19 other people were also injured. According to CNN, the assassin is currently in custody with the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office.
