COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Surveillance footage capturing the attack that killed five people at a gay nightclub in Colorado won't be made public until it's presented at trial.

Prosecutors and defense attorneys had argued that releasing the gruesome footage could make it difficult to seat an impartial jury and would further traumatize the survivors while disrespecting those who were killed in the November shooting.

Judge Michael McHenry agreed Friday not to make the footage public because attorneys on both sides were opposed.

Anderson Aldrich is charged with 305 criminal counts, including hate crimes and murder, for the attack on Club Q in Colorado Springs.
