COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - According to a citation obtained by 11 News, Laura Voepel is facing two charges, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Just hours after the Club Q shooting, police went to Voepel’s apartment. Cell phone video shows the moments Voepel was taken into custody.

Neighbors tell 11 News she lived there with her son Anderson Aldrich. Aldrich is currently in custody for allegedly killing five people and injuring 17 others during the Club Q shooting.

Neighbors say in the weeks leading up to the shooting they could hear the two yelling upstairs and rarely saw them around the complex. They say when police showed up at Voepel’s apartment following the shooting, she began screaming and fighting with officers. In the cell phone video, you can hear Voepel saying police do not have a warrant to enter her apartment.

Voepel: “There’s another officer up there looking through my apartment.”

Voepel also says she believes her son is dead.

Voepel: “My son just died.”

Police officer: “No he didn’t.”

Voepel: “Oh he didn’t?”

The video continues rolling, and Voepel can be heard yelling that police said her son killed somebody.

Voepel is expected in court early next year for the charges.
