A horrifying scene played out in Colorado this weekend, with Fox News reporting that a gunman left five people dead and other 18 injured at a gay bar. 

The crime was committed early on Sunday morning at Club Q, which is located on North Academy Boulevard in Colorado Springs. According to Fox News, federal law enforcement agents are assisting local police with their investigation of the incident.

The network noted that Club Q put up a statement on its Facebook page which said the establishment was “devastated by the senseless attack on our community.”

The statement also praised patrons who reportedly ended the attack, saying, “We thank the quick reactions of heroic customers that subdued the gunman and ended this hate attack.”

Some were quick to politicize the tragedy, with New York Democratic Rep. Nydia Velasquez declaring in a tweet that Republicans effectively had blood on their hands.
