Father of Colorado Springs Shooting Suspect is More Concerned About Son Being Gay Than Mass Killer


The father of Colorado Springs shooting suspect, Anderson Aldrich has reacted to the massacre by explaining that his first reaction to being informed of the attack at Club Q was to question why his child was at an LGBTQ bar.

Aaron Brink, a former porn actor, and MMA fighter told CBS8 he received a call on Sunday night from his child’s public defender to say he was under arrest for the mass shooting, November 20.

“They started telling me about the incident, a shooting involving multiple people,” Mr. Brink said in an interview.

“And then I go on to find out it’s a gay bar. I said, ‘God, is he gay?’ I got scared, ‘S***, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, ‘Phhhewww…’”

“We don’t do gay,” he added.

The father said that while he holds anti-gay views, there’s no excuse for his child shooting people in an LGTBQ+ club. “I’m so sorry guys for your loss,” Mr Brink said.

“With no regard to politics, it’s human life. I’m so sorry. My soul goes out to you.” “Life is so fragile, and it’s valuable,” he said. “Those people’s lives were valuable.”

In Brink’s interview with CBS 8 he apologized for his son’s alleged actions and said that there was ‘no excuse for going and killing people.

A defense attorney had called Brink, who lives in Southern California, to tell him that Anderson Lee Aldrich (pictured) was under arrest for the massacre at Club Q

”’If you’re killing people, there’s something wrong, it’s not the answer,’ he said.At the same time, Brink, who is a recovering methamphetamine user, ‘praised his son’s violent behavior.

”’I told him it works, it is instant and you’ll get immediate results,’ he said. Brink told the broadcaster that he didn’t know that his son was still alive.

He claims that Aldrich’s mother, Laura Voepel, had called him in 2016 to say that their son had changed their name, then died by suicide.

‘I thought he was dead,’ said Brink.’I mourned his loss. I had gone through a meltdown and thought I had lost my son.

‘His mother told me he changed his name because I was in Intervention [a reality tv show] and had been a porno actor.’

Aldrich, 22, has been ordered to be held in jail without bail in a hearing on Wednesday.
