COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO: Richard Fierro was one of the two patrons who was acknowledged by the authorities for his courageous act in stopping the killer from murdering more people in the LGBTQ nightclub. He was in the club along with his family which included his daughter, Kassy, her partner and several other friends to see a drag show and celebrate a birthday.

Fierro initially identified the person who assisted him as a “drag queen,” however, drag performer Del Lusional, who was also at Club Q on the night of the deadly shooting, has corrected Richard's story and said that it was a trans woman and not a drag queen. The trans woman reportedly stomped the gunman's face with her high heels at the instruction of Richard. She continues, "I also want to make it clear, I don’t think Richard knew that she’s not a drag performer. But now that we know, let’s correct it." The trans woman is one of the unsung heroes who played a pivotal role in quelling the carnage. The carnage left five dead and at least 25 wounded.

The Army vet pounced on Anderson Lee Aldrich when they started to shoot people present at the gay bar. Aldrich brought multiple firearms inside the property, including an AR-15-style semiautomatic rifle, and is now facing murder and hate crime charges.

During the ordeal, Richard's daughter's partner was fatally shot. The Army vet used his military training and ducked to avoid any potential incoming fire and then moved to subdue the shooter. While Richard struggled with Aldrich on the ground, he shouted for backup. It was at that moment, the trans woman came to the rescue. She ran over and started battering the shooter with her high heels, which helped Richard to buy some time. He then started beating Aldrich with the gun and repeatedly punching them into submission.

"I love them," Richard said of the city's LGBTQ community, according to Fox News. "I have nothing but love. I really hope people kind of use this and shake someone's hand, give someone a hug, give them a kiss. These are good people, man, these were all kids," he added.

Aldrich was also briefly handcuffed and sat in a police car as law enforcement took over. Colorado Springs Police Chief Adrian Vasquez later praised Fierro for his courageous act. "I have never encountered a person who had engaged in such heroic actions who was so humble about it," Vasquez said. "He simply said to me, ‘I was trying to protect my family.’"
