At least 2 gunmen opened fire as new Batman movie opened ... one shooter in custody
Now reporting only one gunman involved - 14 people now confirmed dead
Sounds like a really well planned attack. Body armor, gasmasks and teargas. Plus maybe secondary devices in the parking lot, maybe to kill first responders.
No mention of gunmen’s names or ethnicity. Until further evidence is available, I’m going to go on the safe side and assume they’re “Amish.”
14 dead - 50 injured
1 year old toddler shot dead at point blank range. ****!
Usually best just to wait it out, no need to make guesses, we will know soon enough.
Scanner: “Blood. Back seats are full of biohazard material”.
Native American 1%
Asian American 5%
African American 30%
Hispanic American 38%
Anglo American 26%
Which says nothing at all about the usual theater audience, and certainly nothing about the shooter(s).
What was it you were saying about July 20th??
You mean “Muslim?”
14 Killed, 50 wounded per DENVER POST
There are over 100 Hispanic gangs in the area ~ odds are this is neither an Amish drive-by nor something involving Jihadis.

Would not surprise me, if that is the case, since I am just hearing about it now, it could be say “Mexican”. In other words, with the invasion of the illegals including those who belong to gangs.
You leave in CO by any chance?
Gang bangers usually target each other, irrespective who else might be around and it’s almost always sudden and unexpected.
This guy planned to murder innocents, for maximal casualties. It could be a loner-type, but the use of a car bomb suggests Jihadi.
The only thing that indicates, off-hand, a loner event is that the guy didn’t say, “Allahu Akhbar” before shooting, or at least it hasn’t been reported yet that happened.
