12 Shot Dead at Batman Midnight Showing

A masked gunman opened fire at a sold-out Colorado theater during the midnight Friday showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” killing 12 people and injuring at least 50 others, according to published news reports.

The bloodshed occurred at a multiplex theater in Aurora, CO at around 12:30 a.m. The theater is near the scene of the Columbine high school shooting in 1999.

The gunman, James Holmes, 24, (pictured above) stood at the front of the theater and released a canister of gas, setting off pandemonium. Witnesses say theater goers began sputtering, choking and coughing as the gunshots rang out.

“Witnesses tell us he released some sort of canister. They heard a hissing sound and some gas emerged and the gunman opened fire,” Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said at a news conference.

Officers apprehended Holmes near a car in the parking lot of the theater. A gas mask, rifle, handgun and at least one other weapon were located inside the theater, according to Aurora police.

Holmes reportedly told police he had bombs or bomb making materials at his home. SWAT teams and the bomb squad evacuated the suspect’s apartment building, but no live bombs were found inside his apartment. Police report “items of interest” were found inside the apartment.

There were reports that as many as 15 people had been shot dead. Police say dozens of injuries may have been caused by shrapnel and the chaos of theater patrons fleeing the theater. The injured ranged in age from 3 months to 45. Some of the injured are listed in critical condition. The dead and injured included young children.

President Obama released a statement saying: “Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific shooting… We will do everything we can to support the people of Aurora in this difficult time.”

      Morning my fave peeps! Didn’t want to say this on the other post. Folks going in on Twitter that parents took their babies there. Um, why does that matter. This fool came in with automatic weapons, shotguns. Had four guns total, tear gas, a gas mask, and a bullet proof vest. Didn’t matter he was ready for a massacre. My heart is breaking. Anything can happen anytime.

      Just like Lakes said, LIFE AIN’T SHYT to some people these days.

      :pray:

      But honestly, if a 3month old baby DID die, why are y’all talkin’ about the parents? So parents don’t take their kids to the movies any more? Are they supposed to stay in the house and miss a movie they wanted to see because they have an infant?? NO ONE is to blame but the sick phuck that shot up the theater.

      I’m going to say the shooter was a white male but I don’t want to be bamboozled like I was when I found out the DC Snipers were black.

      I pray all of the victims who were injured get well soon and the family of the victims who were killed…I couldn’t imagine.

      In movie theaters while you are watching a movie, there are always workers outside standing by each door or near it to make sure you dont sneak into the next movie.(sometimes) So you mean to tell me no one saw a man dressed like this with 2 guns in his hands along with a canister? No one thought that was fishy?

      @Secret… it’s not that I can’t see where some ppl are coming from, I just don’t think that part of this situation should be criticized. A man shot into a packed room of innocent people…it doesn’t matter the ages of the ppl involved nor the time it happened. My opinion

      We have to remember that the media is only going to report certain things.
      Just about every story here lately has holes in it.
      They take stories & run with it without fact checking just to get hits.

      Cause just like everybody is saying, how is a POPULAR MIDNIGHT MOVIE PREMIERE THAT DAYUM EASY to get into? Did this phucka come through an exit for REAL?

      Something in the water ain’t clean!! :nono:

      This is too sad. This makes my stomach hurt to know. I bet when it is all said and done, this sicko is one of those who figured in order to make a name for himself and to “Go down in history” is to kill innocent people. This is how these hell-spawns think. Just twisted!!!

      I feel so bad for all the victims and their families as this is a true tragedy. This is also a WAKE UP CALL THAT ALL TERORRIST DONT WORSHIP IN MOSQUE SOME OF THEM LOOK “AMERICAN” just like you and I.

      I thank God everyday for my father teaching me how to use a weapon and not be scared! I got a baby girl to protect!

    • Lucky704

      Just days ago, the movie buff website Rottentomatoes.com, turned off all comments on the “Dark Knight” posts due to all the death threats made towards the reviewers. But the news probably won’t mention that.
      ______________________________________________________________________
      I saw this article and read some of the post this was just on Tuesday. I don’t understand why people take entertainment to the heart like this. It really bothers me that the mother of the suspect had a feeling her son was involved as soon as she caught wind of the story. It makes you wonder what dark characteristics that person holds. This is so sad, nothing is safe anymore.

      Hello Everyone…

    • militaryspouse1

      I just saw this on the news. What a tragedy. And my kids have the nerve to get mad when I don’t let them do things on their own. Smh and praying for all involved

      I never understood why people take babies to the movies, but still, it’s ur effin right to do so. This is a horrible, tragic story. Unbelievable.

      Its a sad world we live in and things lile this constantly make you afraid of having kids in this world. The movie theatre is like a family spot and you shouldnt have to worry about taking your kids there no time of the day or nighy. Tax dollars shouldnt be wasted on sociopaths like that, just give them the gas chamber and get it over with

      As expensive as movie tickets and snacks are until there are metal detectors I won’t be going to a theater. Call me crazy, but this tragedy was my worst fear that or a fire in the theater.

    • christina

      I live here in Colorado and the media is reporting that the gunman has his apartment filled with explosives and “booby traps” for the authorities. They have the whole complex evacuated and said it may take days to diarm all the devices in the apt. He was definitely looking to hurt more people, as many as possible regardless of age or race.
