LGBTQ Club Is A Gay Nightclub
Club Q is a gay nightclub that hosts a cross-dressing show every Saturday, according to the Associated Press. The club issued a statement saying it would call the shooting a “hate attack” and was appalled by the shooting in the local community.
Police said the suspect did not get into an argument with anyone else but fired directly after entering the nightclub. Police have not yet determined the suspect’s motive. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has been involved in the investigation.
