AURORA - Ten people are dead after a shooting at the Century 16 Movie Theaters at the Aurora Town Center.
There were at least 39 people injured to Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates. Nicole Williams, with Swedish Medical Center, says the hospital was allerted to a mass casualty incident at 1:15 a.m. Friday. Williams says the hospital was told to prepare for up to20 more patients.
According to witnesses, the shooter kicked in the
emergency exit door in theater 9, threw some sort of disorienting smoke bomb and started shooting.
9NEWS has crews on scene. This article will be updated as more information is confirmed.

What the fark is wrong with some of these people?

I cannot understand how someone could choose to do something like that. It makes no sense to me at all.

If you're blaming this on Limbaugh without knowing anything about the shooter, you're a dumbass.

If you're blaming this on "terrorists" or "Islam" without knowing anything about the shooter, you're a dumbass.

bob_ross: Joking aside, I was in a theater shooting once. It was during Friday the 13th part VII: Jason Goes to Hell. The whole theater was hot-boxed (Alexandria on Geary in San Francisco) EVERYONE was talking, you could barely hear the farking movie.

The second credits started to roll, some guy stood up and yelled "Man, that shiat SUCKED" and fired at the screen. EVERYONE screamed and broke out the side door. Me and my buddy just hit the floor and looked at each other in sheer terror. Cops were there in minutes, don't think they ever caught the guy..

My buddy worked at that theater for years after. They never even bothered to repair the screen so I saw Friday (ice cube) for free like 12 times with an authentic bullet hole in the screen.

/was scary as shiat
//thought I was going to be Jason's final victim


Jason Goes to Hell was not Part VII. YOU ARE A PHONY! A BIG FAT PHONY!

No official statement now until 11 a.m. Colorado time.

PIO saying no evidence of a second shooter. Shooter's apartment building has been evacuated.

Dr. Mojo PhD: It's either radical Muslims, radical anti-Muslims, extremist Christians, extremist Jews, militant atheists, white supremacists, black supremacists, gangs, militia members, right-wing extremists, left-wing extremists, a lone nut, or several lone nuts who decided not to be lonely any more.

There, all the bases are covered.

But if it's radical centrists, boy will I have egg on my face.

Colorado officials have confirmed that 10 people, including children, have been killed at the premiere of Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises in the suburbs of Denver.

Local reporter Justin Jones said the gunmen were wearing body armour and gas masks.

"One of the attackers shot a baby at point blank range," he said.

Brenda Stuart, of 850 KOA Radio, said the victims were shot dead but there may have also been an explosion. It is reported that many of the victims are children.

She said police are looking for a second explosive device at the Centruy 16 movie theatre in Aurora Mall.

One suspect has been detained.

As many as 50 people are believed to have been injured in the attack.

Ms Stuart said: "The shooting started during the midnight showing at the theatre. Many people thought it was part of the movie before panic set in.

"Police are taking people to hospital in their own cars, not waiting for ambulances to arrive. There were chaotic scenes as people desperately tried to flee.""

Fox News is reporting that two people were involved in the attack . They set off tear gas, possibly in two separate theatres.

The FBI are on the scene to co-ordinate the hunt for the second man. But their efforts are being hampered by fears that a bomb may have been planted in the movie theatre parking lot.

The movie complex was sold out for the screening.

The preview trailers had just finished when a gas canister exploded, according to witnesses. It is believed the gunmen opened fire as people began to flee the theatres..

coco ebert: White guys don't get called terrorists off the bat, if at all. Usually they're "mentally ill".


No;

"Mentally ill" specifically means only a far-right white guy with provable right-wing ties.
"Liberal" is what they call all other white terror suspects if they have no known ideological links, or a known but unprovable (or at least hideable) links to right-wing groups.

Remember, there are no violent Right-wing domestic terrorists - only violent Left-wing domestic terrorists, and "mentally ill" people.

2012-07-20 05:33:17 AM  
farking Christ, they are reporting (from the police at the press conference) 14 dead and at least 50 wounded. They caught the guy by his car holding a pistol and a rifle. They should have just lit his ass up like a christmas tree. Sighs...very sad day, and my and my families thoughts will be with the victims and their families today. Will be interesting to see who did this, his reasons, (beyond a hat full of farking crazy ass) and the trial. I just hope that most of the victims weren't children, but i have a sinking feeling that they were.

They were asking if the reporters come across any witnesses the police haven't yet debriefed, to send them on to the cops before doing a LIVE LIVE LIVE WITH A WITNESS!!! interview.

The cops rounded up everyone and took them to a local high school for a debrief, which I find amazingly foresighted of them.

They just interviewed an eyewitness: "It was just like something you would see in a movie."

I have never heard of a left-wing domestic terrorist. Don't be deluded. White guys with no known ties to Islamic groups are usually called "right wing militia extremists".
