20 Hurt in Colo. Shooting at Dark Knight Movie

BOMB SQUAD ON THE SCENE IN AURORA

By Mary Papenfuss, Newser Staff

A least 20 people were injured early this morning in a shooting and a possible explosion at a movie theater in Colorado, NBC is reporting. The violence occurred at a Century 16 theater in an Aurora mall following a midnight showing of the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.

One suspect is in custody, and a police bomb squad is on the scene. Three local hospitals were alerted to prepare for a "mass casualty" incident involving at least 20 injured.

Three victims are reportedly in critical condition. The town has been hit with a spate of violence recently. Two people were shot dead in unrelated incidents over the weekend, according to the Denver Post.

Oh great ... Zero now has his platform for a new AWB and massive gun control.

24/7 coverage of “Evil gun owners” coming for the rest of the summer.

Seems like there was some earlier heat today about the movie...

Given how openly negative towards the OWS movement Nolan’s film is: I already have a good, strong suspicion who the culprit(s) will ultimately turn out to be.

And so it begins. The violence will grow exponentially the closer we get to November. It's all part of The Plan.

WTF... they're killing babies at Batman movies now?

Yet another incident proving that our country is collectively going stark raving mad.

I hate people.

Maybe a gang member but it’s all a guess right now.

So sad. Prayers for the families. It could be me. I dropped my son off for the midnight show. He is still there or on way home with another mom.

It seems that these two were too organized to be OWS types.

On the police radio they described someone as a Hispanic male. Unfortunately I wasn’t paying close attention so I’m not sure if they were talking about the theater security or a suspect.

You got it. If anyone still is lacking in 2nd ammendment supplies, they better hurry the heck up and buy them up. If Obummer wins in November, it will be a full court press against the 2nd Ammendment on multiple fronts.

Not likely. Dressed in black, with a riot mask and bullet proof vest. Seems more like a loner psycho.

This is nothing like gang violence. It’s possible but it semms much more organized and terrorist like in execution. The OWS angle seems much more plausible.

Fox saying at least 20 bodies in theater mostly children or youths, not clear if that meant all deaths but he included the one baby on the list. A baby should not be at a midnight showing but that is trivial at this point.

Could be a loner but not if the report of 2 shooters is accurate.
