Aaron Franklin Brink revealed his first reaction after knowing his son, Anderson Lee Aldrich, was the suspect in a mass shooting at a Colorado Springs LGBTQ Club.

His 22-year-old son was accused of shooting five people to death and injuring 18 others at Club Q on Nov. 19 and a defense attorney told Brink in a phone call that Aldrich was under arrest.

“They started telling me about the incident, a shooting involving multiple people,” the MMA-fighter-turned-porn star said in an interview with CBS 8. “And then I go on to find out it’s a gay bar. I said, ‘God, is he gay?’ I got scared, ‘Shit, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, ‘Phhhewww…”

“You know Mormons don’t do gay,” he continued. “We don’t do gay. There’s no gays in the Mormon church. We don’t do gay.”

Aldrich’s lawyer claimed Aldrich is non-binary and “they use they/them pronouns” in a court filing on Tuesday. However, according to the booking records, Aldrich’s gender was identified as male.
