BOMB SQUAD ON THE SCENE IN AURORA
By Mary Papenfuss, Newser Staff
A least 20 people were injured early this morning in a shooting and a possible explosion at a movie theater in Colorado, NBC is reporting. The violence occurred at a Century 16 theater in an Aurora mall following a midnight showing of the new Batman film, The Dark Knight Rises.
One suspect is in custody, and a police bomb squad is on the scene. Three local hospitals were alerted to prepare for a "mass casualty" incident involving at least 20 injured.
Three victims are reportedly in critical condition. The town has been hit with a spate of violence recently. Two people were shot dead in unrelated incidents over the weekend, according to the Denver Post.
(They show up at the same time dressed the same way EVERY morning.)
When it comes to breaking news Fox still can’t match CNN.
14 dead now, 10 in theater, 4 at hospital. 50 wounded. No evidence of 2nd shooter. One shooter w rifle and handgun. Fox failed to carry the news conference live.
Yes I understand that and with serious news to report they look like bimbos.
Are you kidding? The OWS was was the project of professional organizers from former ACORN group.
Someone said an AR-15 was used?!
Shooter used tear gas and armed with an AR15 according to a witness. May have gone to an adjoining theater.
Anything is possible. It is also the start of Ramadan. Ramadan begins with the sighting of the new moon in the night sky - possibly while this was breaking out.
But the Batman movies also seem to trigger those crazed, occultist types. Do you remember when Keith Ledger died, after his Batman role, on the day of his funeral a nutter went off in Europe (Belgium?). He stabbed infants in a nursery. His name, Gelder, was an analgram of Ledger.
I wonder if the shooter was carrying multiple Michigan drivers licenses?
I wonder if the theater had a “No Firearms Allowed” sign. One armed citizen could have stopped this a lot sooner.
Look at what the man is saying and doing now so close to the election. He wont wait until after the election. I have a hunch he thinks he may lose so he's pushing the rest of his agenda through now just in case.
Was your son at the same theater in Colorado? Your profile says you are in California.
I’m fairly certain they know they’re going to lose. So, hang on for a bumpy ride.
The longer it drags on without us knowing something about the attacker, the more we can be sure it is someone that they hate to admit did it,,ie, a moslem on the first day of Ramadan, an angry OWS type, etc.
If it’s the typical suburban snot like the Columbine kids, we’ll know very quickly.
>>One witness on YouTube Was in the next theater over, and said people were shot through the walls in his theater.
Likely the reason people thought there were two shooters, if indeed there was only one.
You’d think Drudge would have someone watching things overnight. He has absolutely no mention of this.
Drudge has literally ZERO overnight staff. Like Fox News they basically shut the lights off at 11 pm EST and come back around 5 am. I suspect Drudge will have something up in about 5 or 10 mins.
I hate to say it but Drudge has gone soft.
