RadarOnline.com has learned that Brink said he was notified about what happened on November 20 by Aldrich's defense attorneys, who explained that his son was involved in a shooting at an LGBTQ nightclub known as Club Q.

The 48-year-old said that he is a Mormon and immediately wondered why Aldrich was at Club Q.

"You know Mormons don't do gay. We don't do gay. There's no gays in the Mormon church. We don't do gay," Brink said during a new interview with CBS 8.

Public defenders representing the 22-year-old describe Aldrich as "non-binary" who uses "they/them pronouns" in court documents.

A new mugshot of Aldrich released on Wednesday showed them with extensive bruising and swelling after two heroic individuals rushed to subdue them during the attack.

RadarOnline.com has learned that Brink had no idea his son was even alive until six months ago, claiming his ex called him in 2016 and told him Adrich changed their name from Nicholas Brink and committed suicide.

"His mother told me he changed his name because I was in intervention and I had been a porno actor," Brink shared.

As a mixed martial arts coach, Brink said he showed his son how to fight in his earlier years.

"I praised him for violent behavior really early. I told him it works. It is instant and you'll get immediate results," he said, noting there is "no excuse" for killing people.

Brink later apologized while addressing the senseless tragedy that also left others severely injured and with long roads to recovery.

"I'm sorry for your loss. Life is so fragile and it's valuable," he said. "Those people's lives were valuable. You know, they're valuable. They're good people probably. It's not something you kill somebody over. I'm sorry I let my son down."
