Fourteen cinema-goers are reported to have been killed and 50 hurt at a cinema in the Colorado city of Aurora during a midnight showing of the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.


Local media also report that two gunmen, believed to have been wearing gas masks, went on the rampage. Further reports confirmed that a blast went off at the theatre number 9 in Century 16 cinema in Aurora,1400 East Alamdea Ave, leaving several injured.

Police said they were hunting an Indian male and began a manhunt at a local mall.

"The number of injured is unclear right now," Al Boe, journalist at BNO News, told IBTimes UK on Twitter. "An explosion definitely went off but early reports said shots were fired. Multiple injuries"

Many children are feared among the casualties. Fox News has reported that a baby was shot at close range.

A second device may have been located in the parking lot of the theatre, according to police radio. Explosive K9's are on scene. POlice are checking a Hyundai vehicle in the car park.

Aurora is the third largest city in Colorado and predominantly working class.

No, said baby would have been shot by the perp. Hopefully they find these pieces of crap and make their death slow, then place their heads on pikes as a warning.

What the... This is completely shocking and disturbing news.

This is the last thing people would expect when going to watch the Dark Knight Rises, everyone is in good spirits and these pieces of filth do something so horrid.

I hope the people who had any part in this are caught and are given the death penalty.

14 people shot dead at Dark Knight Rises theatre in Aurora, Colorado, near Denver. 50 people were also wounded.
A suspect in his 20's has been arrested. The gunman apparently started shooting during the movie, including throwing in tear gas.

Terrifying. Thoughts are with all those affected by this, especially the families of the victims. Some fracked up people in this world. It's sad you can't even go watch a movie without the fear of getting shot.

A 3 month old is the youngest victim.
I don't know if any of you know Jessica Redfield(@JessicaRedfield is her twitter), she does some NHL work and I follow her on twitter but she is confirmed to be one of the 14 people dead. Greenmen just posted a picture of her in a Canucks shirt actually http://d3j5vwomefv46...ASh4MjGIBqGrDI_. Her last tweet was that the movie is about to start in 20 minutes. Just crazy how unpredictable life is.

Is there something in the water in Colorado? Or does higher altitude lead to brain damage?

I agree I hope they have the death penalty in Colorado.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Does something else seem wrong with this picture:

Late night (Midnight) showing.

+ 3 month old baby

+ On a 2.5+ hour movie with loud noises, darkness

Seriously, are parents that selfish and self-absorbed? Get a damn sitter! It's not like your baby will remember the movie. Now it might be wounded and traumatised for life!

Jessica Redfield was at the Toronto Eaton Centre shooting, and described feeling strange right before it happened. Aurora is also extremely close to Columbine. Something stinks.

http://www.cbc.ca/ne...ton-centre.html

Denver victim just missed Toronto Eaton Centre shooting



One of the 12 people reportedly killed in a mass shooting at a screening of the latest Batman movie in Denver was at the Eaton Centre in Toronto on June 2 moments before a gunman open fire in the mall's busy food court.

Jessica Redfield, also known as Jessica Ghawi, was among those killed in the shooting spree late Thursday night, her parents told local media in her home state of Texas.

Ghawi tweeted from the movie theatre in Denver before the fatal attack, saying that the movie was to begin in 20 minutes.

Shortly after the movie began, a gunman entered the theatre and began firing into the crowd from the front of the room, killing 12 people and injuring at least 38 others, authorities said.

Jordan Ghawi, who identified himself as Jessica's brother, tweeted a short time later that Jessica had been critically wounded in the theatre.

"Well this could easily be the worst night of my life," he wrote. "It appears that my sister has been fatally wounded in a mass shooting at a movie premiere in Denver, CO."

On a blog attributed to Redfield, she described herself as an aspiring sports reporter who was born in Texas and was living in Colorado.

She had apparently befriended Vancouver Canucks superfans The Green Men, who tweeted early Friday morning that their "hearts go out to the victims of the Colorado Shooting. We knew one of the victims. RIP @JessicaRedfield."

Less than a month ago, Redfield had written a blog post about surviving the Eaton Centre shooting in Toronto, in which two people were killed and six others were injured.

"I can't get this odd feeling out of my chest,: This empty, almost sickening feeling won’t go away," she wrote.

"I noticed this feeling when I was in the Eaton Center in Toronto just seconds before someone opened fire in the food court. An odd feeling which led me to go outside and unknowingly out of harm‘s way.

"It’s hard for me to wrap my mind around how a weird feeling saved me from being in the middle of a deadly shooting."
