At a midnight screening of the Dark Knight Rises in a theater in a mall in Aurora (a suburb of Denver), a gunman wearing a gas mask and body armor opened fire on the crowded theater, killing at least 12 people and wounding 50.
There is at least one suspect in custody.
The gunman apparently broke in through an emergency exit, threw a smoke bomb into the theater and then began opening fire.
What a horrible tragedy. Read CNN’s coverage of the tragedy here for more information.
Our condolences to all of the victims and their families.
