COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — A witness to a shooting at a Colorado Springs gay nightclub says the suspect showed “no hesitation” when he entered Club Q and opened fire. Deanne VanScyoc says the gunman, who wore body armor, moved through the club with a rifle at eye level, fired at people gathered at the bar and then sprayed a dance floor with bullets. Authorities said five people were killed and 17 injured in the weekend shooting at Club Q, a prominent LGBTQ hangout in Colorado Springs. The suspect was being held without bail during a first court appearance on Wednesday.
