12 Killed At Dark Knight Rises Screening
At least one dozen people were killed at the midnight screening of the Dark Knight Rises at the Century 16 movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado this morning. A gunman wearing a gas mask — evidently an imitation of the movie and comics villain Bane — was arrested at the scene. According to the Associated Press, 16 people are in critical condition as of this writing.
24 year old James Holmes was placed under arrest. He offered no resistance.
Various theater locations have increased security, and a Paris debut was cancelled.
This is a breaking story, and as in the case of all such stories, facts unfold slowly and sometimes misinformation comes out. Details as they develop.
