    Several people were just killed in a shooting during a midnight screening of Dark Night Rises. Police are still apparently responding.

    I was watching the coverage on 9-News Denver just now, a fucking PRANK CALLER pretending to be a Police Chief called in and got on air, mentioned Howard Stern, I can't fucking believe some people.

    edit: at the time of that prank call, 9-News upped the death count to 15, now it's back down to 14 so I'm assuming the prank caller reported a fake death.

    edit: police are saying they are confident it was a lone gunman.

    edit: confirmed that a 3 month old child is being treated who was injured in the incident.

    edit: for whatever it's worth, I heard on the news someone say the shooter is 24 years old, I don't know if that's confirmed.

    edit: multiple sources confirmations vary, but KNUS (radio) reduced the counts to 12 injured and 38 injured which seems to be more of a consensus.

    edit: Aurora police say 14 dead.

    Witness says the shooter kicked in the door, threw gas canisters, and waited calmly for them to go off before shooting. 3 weapons total found.

    The name of the shooter is James Holmes.

    edit: Police said he was not resisting arrest, but is currently not cooperating with investigators. They are entering his apartment through the window, I'm guessing because they are worried for a boobie-trap which is understandable considering the massive damage he caused on his own.

    edit: (changed) KNUS confirming TWELVE dead

    EDIT: THE 3 MONTH OLD WAS DISCHARGED FROM THE HOSPITAL. I would imagine the child is ok, that's all I just heard.

    I liked this and swiftly realised I am going to hell.

    I don't get the point of this though, is it just an attempt to cause terror? I'll wait for the investigation to be over to see what the statement will be.

    Why do I get the sick feeling he was pretending to be James Gordon?
    What's next, someone impersonating a district attorney like Harvey Dent?

    No, really, this is kinda odd. The prank caller, the style of shooting and bomb placement, like someone is deliberately staging all this awful shit.

    It's a damn shame that a total waste of life felt like they had to do this to people who just wanted to watch a film and have a good time.

    I've heard of many senseless attacks on business, the public and schools, but never anything like an attack on a place of entertainment.

    I wouldn't call the Lincoln assassination an attack on entertainment, that location was incidental and not a senseless attack.

    Whoever this wanker turns out to be. He should be hung, drawn and quartered and his name forgotten for the rest of time.
    Erase this looser.

    Stadiums have long been "terrorist targets" and have occasionally suffered politically motivated attacks. At present, though, this one doesn't seem to be politically driven. It "just" seems to be a mass murder.

    My condolences to the families.

    Shooting children is not cool man. I hope the gunman gets more than what he deserves.

    Let's hope they make an example of him, and I would prefer life sentence instead of death sentence.
    I'm going to watch a the new Batman film pretty soon too, it'll be only out for 3 days at that moment, so it's kind of a similar situation where this happened.

    Unfortunately, if the guy's a freaking psycho, he may wind up like the perpetrator of the Tucson shooting in January 2011. (The one which injured a congresswoman -- Gabrielle Giffords -- and President Obama visited Tucson expressly to make a special (memorial) address to the press about it)

    I was living 4 miles away from that shooting when it happened. One of the murder victims was a 9-year old girl. His court process is especially messed up because he succeeded in killing a Judge though.

    At least the killer didn't kill himself and take the easy way out.
