The dad of the Colorado shooter who is accused of killing five people in a gay club said he was relieved to find out his son is ‘not gay’.

Aaron Brink – a former porn star – who lives in Southern California, said being gay did not align with his families religious values.

His son, Anderson Lee Aldrich, 22, has been accused of shooting five people dead and injuring 18 others in the massacre at a gay club in South Colorado at the weekend.

Speaking to CBS8, Brink said: ‘They started telling me about the incident, a shooting involving multiple people.

‘And then I go on to find out it’s a gay bar. I said, ‘God, is he gay?’ I got scared, ‘Sh*t, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, ‘Phhhewww’.’

He added: ‘You know Mormons don’t do gay. We don’t do gay. There’s no gays in the Mormon church. We don’t do gay.’ 

The Mormon Church has confirmed that while Aldrich was a member, he has not been active in some time, The Daily Beast reported.
