Authorities say the suspect, identified as Anderson Lee Aldrich, received medical treatment and is now in the custody of the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office. Aldrich is facing five counts of first-degree murder and five counts of a bias-motivated crime causing bodily injury, according to an online docket in the El Paso County Court.
