‘Dark Knight Rises’ Cinema Shooting

Standard

A crazy gun-wielding man, James Holmes, ran into a screening of new action flick ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ in Colorado yesterday, and shot 12 dead people (including children), and injured 59. He randomly shot at cinema goers at the film’s midnight screening, and entered the cinema just minutes after the film started. He was found in the car parks mere minutes later, and did not resist police force. Witnesses claim that they saw a person’s silhouette wearing body armour and a gas mask at the front of the theatre, who was pointing a gun at the crowd.

His devastated family have announced: “Our hearts go out to those who were involved in this tragedy and to the families and friends of those involved. We ask that the media respect our privacy during this difficult time. Our family is co-operating with authorities in both San Diego, California and Aurora, Colorado. We are still trying to process this information and we appreciate that people will respect our privacy.”

Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time. We are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded,” US President Obama told an audience in Florida today.
