The father of Colorado Springs mass shooting suspect Anderson Lee Aldrich thought that his son was dead until just six months ago, he told media in a confusing interview.
Aaron Brink, the 48-year-old father of the Club Q shooter, told media in a somewhat incoherent interview that he "praised" his son for "violent behavior" as a child and believed him to have committed suicide in 2016.
I had gone through a meltdown and thought I had lost my son," Brink said to local outlet CBS 8.

He said that the first fear he had after finding out the news was that his son is gay.
We don't do gay," Brink said.
Public defenders representing Aldrich, who is accused of killing five people and injuring 17 more in the gay nightclub shooting, describe the 22-year-old in court documents as "nonbinary."
Brink expressed remorse for what his son is accused of doing, "There's no excuse for going and killing people.
If you're killing people, there's something wrong.
