At 12:00am today in Aurora, Colorado at a local theatre 12 are confirmed to be shot dead and roughly 50 have been injured in a mass shooting at the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, the shooter has been apprehended. Several witnesses report that a man dressed entirely in black with a bullet proof vest and a riot gear helmet entered the theatre in a calm manner approaching a screening and dropping two smoke grenades and began shooting with a machine gun into the crowd. The police are currently at the shooters house and have confirmed that explosives are in the house. They're using the upmost care and have called the Denvor bomb squad.
Among the 50 victims many children have been injured in the shootings some as young as 6 years to 3 months old. It's fucking madness right now and only a little information has come about this but there has been several videos uploaded to Youtube who were at the scene;
Honestly I cant express how sympathetic I am for the victims and their families and everyone who was at the scene. I can't imagine witnessing an event such as this and after all the excitement over the release of this movie that fellow Bloggers have commented on, I can't imagine why anyone would want to do an action like this. And for that I sympathise for the shooters mental health.
I wont be following up on this any more.
