Laura Voepel, mother of Club Q suspect, detained day after mass shooting

The mother of the person suspected of a mass shooting inside a Colorado Springs LGBTQ nightclub was detained the day after the shooting, court records filed Monday show.

Colorado Springs police detained and ticketed Laura Voepel, 45, on Nov. 20 on suspicion of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for unreasonable noise, online court records show. Voepel is the mother of Anderson Lee Aldrich, who is in jail on suspicion of killing five in the Nov. 19 shooting at Club Q. More than 20 people were injured.

Colorado Springs police did not immediately respond to a request for documents about the incident. Voepel was detained for refusing to stop making noise in an apartment complex, according to Denver television station KDVR, which first reported the citation.

Resisting arrest is a misdemeanor and disorderly conduct is a petty offense.

Voepel is scheduled to appear in El Paso County Court on Jan. 25 for her arraignment.
