The gunman suspected of opening fire in a Colorado Springs nightclub over the weekend is being held on homicide and hate crime charges as of Monday, Reuters reports.

Over the weekend, 22 year-old Anderson Lee Aldrich fatally shot at least five patrons at Club Q with a long rifle. He is believed to have caused injury to at least 18 more people in the process.

According to the Associated Press, Aldrich was ultimately stopped by a 15-year U.S. Army Veteran, Richard Fierro, who was celebrating a birthday among family. Fierro said the gunman came into the nightclub shooting. However, during a brief pause in the firing, Fierro was able to approach Aldrich, grab his firearm off of him and hit him with it before pinning him down until police arrived.
