New details are emerging in the case of the Colorado Springs gay nightclub shooter who killed five people and wounded 18 others on Saturday.
Among key facts are that the shooter claims to identify as non-binary and uses they/them pronouns, perhaps changing the motive regarding hate crimes.

The court filing
“Anderson Aldrich is nonbinary,” a footnote in the filing states, according to Breitbart News. “They use they/them pronouns, and for the purposes of all formal filings, will be addressed as Mx. Aldrich.”
“The news about Aldrich’s gender identity came after Democrats and members of the corporate press politicized the shooting and blamed Republicans for the tragedy,” the report added.

“Aldrich was injured during the shooting but released from a local hospital and “booked into the El Paso County Jail,” earlier on Tuesday,” Axios reported.
“Aldrich was due to make their first court appearance via video link from jail Wednesday, according to the Denver Post,” it added.

The new information may change the charges in the case. It is still not clear what the motive was for the shooting.
However, the new details may lead to dropping the hate crime charges as the shooter apparently identified as part of the LGBTQ movement.
The facts will also contrast the widespread media narrative that instantly blamed “hate” as the reason behind the shootings rather than waiting for the facts regarding the case.
