Updated November 20, 2022 at 6:36 AM ET

Five people were killed and 18 injured in a shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub this weekend in Colorado Springs, Colo., authorities said.

Police received a phone call at about 11:57 p.m. to report a shooting at Club Q, Colorado Springs Police Department spokesperson Lt. Pamela Castro told media early Sunday morning.

"Numerous officers and medical immediately responded to the area and officers immediately made entry," Castro said.

Castro said "they did locate one individual who turned out to be the suspect," and added that there is an investigation in "the very initial stages."

CPR News reports one suspect is in custody and is being treated at a local hospital.

In a statement on Facebook, Club Q said it is "devastated by the senseless attack on our community."

"Our prays and thoughts are with all the victims and their families and friends. We thank the quick reactions of heroic customers that subdued the gunman and ended this hate attack."

Castro said the motive for the shooting was unknown, according to CPR News.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
