Club Q, where police said the first call came in minutes before midnight, described it as a “hate attack.”
Lt. Pamela Castro, a police spokesperson, told reporters the suspect was injured, in custody and receiving treatment at a hospital. She declined to comment on a motive and said the FBI was assisting in the investigation.
“We thank the quick reactions of heroic customers that subdued the gunman and ended this hate attack,” Club Q said in a statement on its Facebook page, which had posted hours earlier that it was planning a drag brunch to celebrate Transgender Day of Remembrance on Sunday.
