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.
FOX labeling it the ‘Dark Knight’ Massacre.
Chaos compared to Columbine.
This is a different country from the one I grew up in. Trash culture.
I’m wondering if there is any conncetion with the bus bombing in Bulgaria - some type of coordinated global spree. The suspect in the Bulgaria bombing DID use a Michigan drivers license. Pure speculation of course but that’s all we can do at this point.
Reported they have one person in custody.
It’s painful to listen to these news people find ways to talk for 59 minutes and report 1 minute of actual news every hour.
It was surreal to see 2 Fox babes appear on screen w long legs and mini skirts at 5 am but frankly one of them is doing a better job of interviewing witnesses. They arent showing them now and ought to re wardrobe them out of respect.
All of the 'Rat boards -- DU, Kos, Firedoglake, etc. -- are absolutely livid with Nolan, right now.
Again: if I'm wrong, then I'm wrong... BUT --
He isn’t home yet. I can’t sleep.
Press conference supposed to be starting soon.
Will it be online?
14 dead now. One gunman.
There are at least 5 threads on this story going now. Hope the admins try to keep everything on one thread so it will be easier to follow the Freeper commentary.
Fox indicating maybe only one shooter no evidence of 2nd we will see.
Gunman in custody.
Fox now reporting NO evidence of a second shooter? How did shots get fired in two separate theaters?
Dead, now at 14.
It was a Michigan drivers license but the street address listed was for some casino in Louisiana. I wouldn’t assume the bombing in Bulgaria was done by an American.
Yep, police radio reported shots fired in “Theater 8 & Theater 9”.
One witness on YouTube Was in the next theater over, and said people were shot through the walls in his theater.
Police chief audio news conf on cnn not on fox.
No evidence of a 2nd gunman. Some sort of smoke bomb went off. Suspect has only said something about explosives at his apartment which has been evacuated.
No, but there are certainly a lot of American ties with the muslim terrorist crowed. Code Pink comes to mind. I can see the OWS/anarchist crowd working with the muzzies.
