Just days after the horrific Colorado shooting, one of its heroes is opening up. As you’ve likely heard by now, a man walked into the LGBTQ-friendly Club Q in Colorado Springs late Saturday night and opened fire.

As we’ve previously reported, the shooter used a long rifle, and two additional firearms were found at the scene after he was apprehended around 12:02 a.m.

In total, five victims were tragically killed, and at least 18 other club patrons were injured. However, something prevented that number from growing even higher: the bravery of a couple clubgoers who tackled the shooter and held him for police.

The army veteran was attending the club with his wife, his daughter, and her boyfriend. When the shooting started, he explained, he snapped into combat mode, remembering his military training to protect his family and friends:  Fierro had served four tours overseas, three in Iraq and one in Afghanistan.
