I suggest we all keep the shooting victims and their families in our thoughts and prayers today. So far 14 dead and 50 injured. Some person, or persons went into a movie theater there last night at a Batman opening and opened fire and threw out teargas from what is being reported. Awful, tragic news.

Nothing like waking up and having to do an inventory of your friends. I live in Colorado Springs, about an hour away, have plenty of friends up in Denver. Luckily, none of them went to this theatre to see the movie.
They updated the number dead to 12. Not that this lessens the heinousness of this act any.

Very sad. Thoughts and prayers out to everyone and their friends and families.
Prayers to all touched by this insanity. It's sobering to wake up to this when I had been in a movie theater last night, having taken my 15 year old and her friend to see Spiderman, here in upstate NY. They wanted Batman but I said I'm not staying up until 3 AM on vacation for a movie. We passed costumed fans waiting to get into the midnight showing. This morning, there are people everywhere who saw the movie and have to be chilled to the bone knowing they were in that same situation as those folks in Colorado. Now, we have one more place where we will feel apprehensive for our children. The randomness of senseless violence grows by the moment.
I may not be pretty, but I'm fast.....

Yes very sad tragic news. I have a cousin that lives in Aurora with his wife and thankfully they are ok.

It's true. Some men just want to watch the world burn
So hear are my questions
1) Why were emergency exit doors accessible from the outside
2) Where did he get tear gas and who sold it to him
3) Where did he get riot gear
4) Why did someone have a 3 month old baby at a theater at midnight
5) What kind of world are we living in these days
Truly tragic and senseless
Thoughts and prayers extended for the victims and their families.

1) Parked his car outside the exit. Bought a ticket and sat near the Emergency Exit door. Walked out that door once the movie started and I assume he propped it open. Got his gear from the car and came back in.
All the other questions are what I was thinking too.
That would explain it. News coverage had no idea how he ot the door open when I was watching it yesterday around 1pm.
