The American Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming has honored the Club Q shooting hero Richard Fierro with the Lifesaving Military Hero of the Year Award.
The decorated Army veteran was presented the award during the 2023 Rocky Mountain Heroes Soirée in Denver Saturday night.
Fierro said being referred to as a “hero” is still hard to hear.
“We’re all the same. They’re all heroes in there. It was a nightmare,” Richard Fierro said of everyone else who was there that night who jumped into action, whether it was to tackle the shooter or help others in need.
Fierro helped take down the shooter inside Club Q saving many lives. He says it’s an honor to be recognized by The Red Cross.
