The Colorado Springs club said it will work with an architecture firm for the future layout of the LGBTQ+ club and a permanent standing memorial.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Club Q announced Thursday that it's working with a Colorado Springs architecture firm on the design of a permanent standing memorial to the victims of the shooting there in November.

Five people – Daniel Aston, Kelly Loving, Ashley Paugh, Derrick Rump and Raymond Green Vance – were killed in the shooting Nov. 19 at Club Q. Seventeen others were injured by gunshots, police said. Five others were injured, but not by gunshots.

On Thursday, Club Q said in a news release that it's working with HB&A, an architecture and planning firm, "on the concept design for the future layout of the club and the design of the permanent standing memorial that will be outside the club. HB&A is donating some of their time and efforts to working on these projects, and we're incredibly grateful."

After the shooting, people from Colorado Springs and all over Colorado came to Club Q to pay their respects to the victims. A memorial grew day by day outside the club.

The club has been closed since the shooting and plans to stay at its current location with new aesthetics and a new layout, and stronger security measures.
