The 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office filed a motion Monday to add an additional 12 charges against the suspected Club Q shooter.
Anderson Lee Aldrich already faces 305 charges, including first-degree murder with intent as well as hate crimes. The dozen new charges would push that number to 317 and involve two new surviving victims.
They include attempted murder 1-after deliberation, attempted murder 1-extreme indifference, attempted assault 1-serious bodily injury with a deadly weapon, and more hate crimes charges.
Aldrich is due in court again this week.
