Five dead and 18 injured after gunman opened fire inside gay club

It is unclear how the suspect was injured, though early reports suggest the gunmen was subdued by patrons inside the club, which had been sponsoring a drag show earlier in the night.

Numerous victims, some in critical condition, were transported to nearby hospitals. The medical facilities are currently working to notify families of their loved ones' conditions.

Authorities are treating the scene as a mass casualty event, which is defined as an incident in which the number of people killed or injured overwhelms the capacity of local authorities.

FBI agents are 'already on scene' and assisting with the investigation, which Colorado Springs Lieutenant Pamela Castro told the media is in the preliminary stage.

Police are expected to provide more updates during a press conference today around 8am local time.

They say it is too early to determine if the shooting was a targeted hate crime.
