Gunman Opens Fire in Aurora, Colorado Theater

An armed gunman attacked an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater early this morning, throwing tear gas before opening fire on the audience and killing 12 and wounding more than 40. The movie theater was showing the new Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

The suspect has been identified as James Holmes, 24.

In a heartbreaking twist, one of the victims in Colorado is Jessica Ghawi (known on Twitter as @JessicaRedfield) who narrowly escaped the mass shooting at a Toronto Mall just last month. She documented her Eaton Center shooting thoughts on her blog.

    I am just now watching the Pictures and Names of the 12 Deceased on the News… So many Young— in High School or College— and a poor little 6-year-old and 3-month-old Baby. With 11 others fighting for their Life in the Hospital, this is profoundly Sorrowful. From the Streets.. to High Schools.. to Malls.. and now Movie Theaters— my God, where will it end. Pray, Pray, this will not spurn Copy-Catting, and God be with all those affected by this extremely horrific Tragedy. “Dark Knight”… Dark Day.

    Another nut…………terrible loss of life…….hang him out back.

  3. The shooting massacre in Colorado simply let us know how dangerous society can be. This had to be the worst shooting Massacre in U.S history. It’s unbelieveable to see a man kill 12 innocent people, injure 58 with 30 being in critical condition. May our prayers be with their Family. However, this is the reason why we have to take self defense seriously. People have to learn to be aware, take self defense classes or even carry handguns or non-lethal weapons. However, we can’t sit back an allow these incidents to happen. This was horrible. May God be the victims families. May the suspect receive the maximum penality for his actions.
