14 12 people were killed and 50 59 were injured at a movie theater in Denver, Co. What craziness. My heart goes out to the survivors and the families of both the survivors and the dead. Very sad. Very unnecessary.
I go to movies all the time. I love movies. When I was much younger, I loved going to any kind of movie – good, bad, action, drama. I would go to the movies with friends, on dates or by myself. This is so incredibly sad.
From Denver Post:
Fourteen people were killed and about 50 were injured early Friday when shots rang out at an Aurora movie theater during a premiere showing of the new Batman movie.
A 24-year-old suspect in is custody and an apartment building in north Aurora connected to the suspect was being evacuated and searched for possible explosives, according to Police Chief Dan Oates.
Oates said there was no evidence of a second suspect, but the man in custody had made a statement about possible explosives in his residence.

— 12-gauge shotgun, an AR-15 assault rifle and a .40-caliber Glock handgun, according to Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates. A second Glock was found in Holmes’ car, but police don’t know if it was used in the attack.
The weapons were bought from two local stores of two national chains, Gander Mountain Guns and Bass Pro Shop, beginning in May, law enforcement officials told NBC News.
Holmes was wearing “full ballistic gear,” including a helmet, vest, throat protector, gas mask and black tactical gloves, Oates said.
Oates said investigators are not able to calculate how many shots were fired in the theater, but that “lots of bullets fired very quickly.”
