Twelve people died in the shooting at a showing of the new Batman film “The Dark Knight Rises” in Aurora, Colo., early Friday morning. The suspect has been apprehended and identified as James Holmes (age 24). The gunman (Wearing a flack jacket) entered a crowded theater was carrying a shotgun, two handguns, and had a rifle strapped to his back. Witnesses report that Holmes kicked down an emergency door at the theater, threw in some type of a smoke bomb and began shooting when moviegoers started to run.

At least 12 people have been killed and up to 50 injured. One of the 12 people shot and killed in the “Dark Knight Rises” massacre in Colorado this morning had narrowly avoided a shooting spree in a Toronto mall last month. Read her unfortunate story here.
