20 Hurt in Colo. Shooting at Dark Knight Movie

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.

There are at least 5 threads on this story going now. Hope the admins try to keep everything on one thread so it will be easier to follow the Freeper commentary.

Fox now reporting NO evidence of a second shooter? How did shots get fired in two separate theaters?

Dead, now at 14.

It was a Michigan drivers license but the street address listed was for some casino in Louisiana. I wouldn’t assume the bombing in Bulgaria was done by an American.

No evidence of a 2nd gunman. Some sort of smoke bomb went off. Suspect has only said something about explosives at his apartment which has been evacuated.

No, but there are certainly a lot of American ties with the muslim terrorist crowed. Code Pink comes to mind. I can see the OWS/anarchist crowd working with the muzzies.

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 theater had a “No Firearms Allowed” sign. One armed citizen could have stopped this a lot sooner.

If Obummer wins in November, it will be a full court press against the 2nd Ammendment on multiple fronts.

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.

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.

Likely the reason people thought there were two shooters, if indeed there was only one.

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.

Is he still a one man band? Same if he is, he needs a staff 24/7.

BTW listening live to Aurora PD on the web....

Sounds like the sprinklers went off in the theater...

And no matter what happens, it will turn out badly for us. If it was a left wing nut, then we need more gun laws and Obama becomes the national healer. If it is a right wing nut, then Rush is to blame, we need more gun laws and Obama becomes the national healer.

Sometimes - but with the Virginia Tech shooting, it took ages for them to own up to it - that it was a Korean American.

Virginia Tech shooting - Yup, it was a Korean American using democrat talking points in the youtube video he’d made before the shooting. (actually he may have been Korean 100%. I forgot his actual status)

“If it was a left wing nut, then we need more gun laws and Obama becomes the national healer. If it is a right wing nut, then Rush is to blame, we need more gun laws and Obama becomes the national healer.”

One minor correction. The leftist, athiest, dope-smoking nut who shot Giffords was magically transformed into a right-wing follower of Sarah Palin.

We won’t find out the identity of the killer until the Shamwow administration creates a fabricated Facebook page filled with links to Rush, Beck, Palin, Going Galt, NRA, TEA party, etc... they should have it finished shortly.
