    Five people have been killed and 18 injured after a gunman opened fire inside a gay club in the US state of Colorado on Saturday night.

    The suspected shooter, who officials identified as Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, was injured in the attack, apprehended and hospitalized, Sgt. Pamela Castro, the Colorado Springs Police Department spokeswoman said.

    District Attorney Michael Allen confirms this will be a federal, state, and local investigation. There is no comment at this time if this was a targeted hate crime or if another motive was involved.

    Patients are being treated at three different hospitals, Colorado Springs Fire Chief Randy Royal said at the news conference.

    Penrose Hospital is treating seven patients, two of whom remain in critical condition; the other five “mainly had extremity injuries,” the hospital’s Chief Medical Officer William Plauth said Sunday, adding that two of those five patients have already been treated and released.

    Memorial Hospital Central received 10 patients, Chief Medical Officer David Steinbruner said. Those injuries included “multiple gunshot wounds” and “several people” in the ICU, Steinbruner added.

    Memorial Hospital North received two patients, officials said.

    Castro said she expected the number of casualties to change as the investigation unfolded. She added that there were “some injuries that were a result of people fleeing” the scene
