oUp to 20 people have been injured in a shooting at a movie theater near Denver, police said.
Aurora, Colo. police said there are fatalities but they don't know how many. Police dispatchers said calls about the shooting started coming in about 12:30 a.m. local time Friday from a mall theater that was showing the Batman movie "The Dark Knight Rises."
Police said one person has been arrested, but no other details were available. Police spokeswoman Cassidee Carlson said "the scene is still very active and we have little information for release at this time."
Swedish Medical Center spokeswoman Nicole Williams said two of the injured have arrived at her hospital in critical condition, and the hospital has been told there could be several more.

Evidently they have one suspect in custody but are looking for another. Evidently this is still an active scene.
If it’s a Muslim the media and Obama will have to get together to decide what the story will be.
If it’s not, we will be hearing on MSNBC and CNN soon it was a Christian...
Obama’s not up yet.
And they go into mind numbing parrot mode, repeating over and over again the same information, both correct and incorrect, but mostly incorrect.
I can just see the liberal gun grabbers licking their chops over this--

Anyone want to guess when the first call for banning all guns will be spewed by Democrats?
Kid getting interviewed at the moment stated he heard an explosion first.
(Now I know i’ve heard they used gas or smoke first, never heard this)
Mom of kid said daughter said exit door by screen opened and someone threw something into the theatre (smoke, gas?). Within five minutes of the movie starting! Movie theatre has a lot of explaining to do on the exit door not being locked from outside. They need to quiz employees.
Newswoman on News 9, he had rifle, handgun, cops want to get in his house.
Yet she doesn’t know his name or reason.
FYI, i’ve seen a lot of anti-second amendment statements, comparisons to Columbine and even in the UK statements re: US being full of crazy gun nuts within 10 minutes of an incident over here. I don’t like the smell of it. I also saw references to Ramadan and anniversary of Brevik massacre of all the camp kids (2 days off).
Note also: Reported kids were out since the evening before to get tickets.
Listening to 850 KOA on the Kindle. One victim is a possible Afghan War Vet.
Lives thru combat only to get killed by some yellowdog while watching a Batman movie. Thats a real shame.
Very, very sad indeed.
It also happens to be the anniversary of the July 20 Plot to kill Hitler and the anniversary of the UN decision not to recognize Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel but I really think it’s best to cool our own wild speculation. Yes, if the perp is a Moslem there will be a mainstream media blackout and CAIR will march in the streets to oppose something nasty a pop-corn vendor might have said about “freedom-fighters” and Democrats will urge a “national re-evaluation of our attitude toward Islam” and the President will bow to a few more Sheiks and our public school”teachers” will explain to our children how this is all the fault of American Imperialism and so-called “Palestinians” will dance in the streets (though the footage will never see the light of day outside of Israel). But, for the moment, we are speculating without knowing a thing... Just like the newscasters we criticize for speculating while not knowing a thing.
If you get a chance to see the interview (if it’s put up as a separate vid), of a black woman who stated she had tickets to go with her friends, but went to the hospital for a medical situation and heard the call when she was at the nurses station.
Listen to her and tell me what’s wrong with it.
That’s where they got the baby shot point blank statement.
But she noted her friends were leaving as it happened. It didn’t sound like a popcorn run though. Maybe shock. So far the youngest taken in was 6, unless taken to another facility we don’t know about.
Now the news woman commences to play audio of the cops re: car, suspect. (shakes head)
They’ve stated some were shot in theater 8 as well (through the wall?). I wonder what the size of them are.
SWAT at address, looking for explosives? Newsman states mid block apartment building/north Aurora, they were a down the block and were asked to go further back so they could lock the block down for staging/safety. Being asked if he’s seen this type of concern re: shooting and if he heard explosives were what they were looking for, affirmative. He also stated he doesn’t like to report details not confirmed.
Now confirmed 15 dead.
Explosives found at home.
9News stated Homeland/Brennan has informed the President of this shooting.
I’ve never been in a theater that had the exits locked. That would be a fire hazard. And people need to have free access to the $5.00 popcorn and $4.00 sodas.
Was this demon slapped around interrogated 24 style to get more information out of him immediately? I hear he has already been squealing about some bombs he has placed in his apartment and automobile
From the outside.
Confirmed, there was a three month old, per 9News Colo. stream.
Witness just now said a guy come from the exit in the front. He AND someone from the back threw tear gas canisters.
We have another suspect.
You absolutely have to wonder if this doesn’t have something to do with Obama’s need to get the narrative off how devastating comments the other day-—those were already finishing off his campaign. Now, he’s presented with a perfect reverse “Fast and Furious”. Most other presidents, you wouldn’t even entertain the thought.
They're not a fire hazard if they're locked on the outside. They are panic doors, openable from the inside by pushing on the bar, whether or not the lock is engaged. They are generally required by the fire code and you'd be searching a long, long time for a theater that did not have them.
How can you get movie times previous to upcoming?
It would seem this guy knew there was shooting in the beginning of the movie.
How did he know?
.....you’d be searching a long, long time for a theater that did not have them....
One of the first real indications to me of the gathering terrible storm in Iran was at a theater. In Bandar Shapur the Homani zealots chained the doors shut and burned the theater showing the sinful movie. The death toll was large
I remember a time when a Liberal was elected to clean up the image of Aurora(back int he 60’s) Seems gangs were embarrassing the politicians by their activity at public events. Aurora wanted wanted to be like Denver or SanFrancisco or ? _Yup they sure cleaned it up alright.We have sewn the wind and will reap the whirlwind. Reagan said it well enough — IF we ever stop being ONE NATION UNDER GOD —we will be a nation gone under.”Have our chosen leaders NOT divorced the State form the Founding principles of Religion and Morality once deemed necessary for good government and the happiness of mankind.Now we are told we must pursue the secular (sic.Godless) fantasies and act out like they do in Hollywood our sexual orientations and our power lust dementia.
I think there were a few advance screenings of this film; perhaps the shooter went to one the night before. Which means he was armed and equipped in advance, looking for the right opportunity.
Of course I was thinking of doors being conventionally locked. I’m aware of the type of doors you mentioned (locked from outside but not inside.).
I guess someone would have to be nearby to open the doors from the inside for firefighters in case of fire. Of course they always have their trusty axes.
Prayers up for the victims and their families, for the first responders, for the medical personnel, and for the parents of the shooter, who are totally innocent, despite the attempts of some posters to cast blame.
Note what just came on, hosted by Batman actor and big donor to the O.
Kid dropped out of UC Denver Neuroscience GP
Sure it’s just a fluke.
Should be a huge protest at the UN when they take our 2nd Amendment rights away.
