    Exclamation 14 Killed, 50 Wounded in Shooting Colorado Movie Theater

    What the ****


    http://www.cnn.com/2012/07/20/us/col...html?hpt=hp_t1


    (CNN) -- At least 14 people were killed and 50 were wounded when a gunman opened fire during an early Friday morning screening of the new Batman movie at an Aurora, Colorado, theater, Police Chief Dan Oates told reporters.
    The man suspected of opening fire on the crowded theater was taken into custody, Oates said.
    The heavily armed suspect, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, was apprehended by police in a parking lot at the theater, Frank Fania, a police spokesman told CNN. The identity of the suspect has not immediately been released.
    "We do no have evidence of a second gunman," Oates said.
    Of the wounded, at least 20 were being treated at the University of Colorado Hospital, said spokeswoman Jacque Montgomery. All of the wounded suffered from gunshot wounds, which ranged from minor to critical, she said.
    "They're arriving by police, by ambulance. Some are walking in," she said.
    The shooting incident occurred during the showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" at the Century Aurora 16 theater, police and witnesses said.
    "We saw people running around and screaming," a man, who was not identified, told KUSA.
    He said there was confusion in the theater when the shooting began because many believed the sound of gunfire was coming from the movie next door.
    Oates said that the suspect used some sort of "smoke device" before opening fire in the theater.
    Witnesses, however, told KUSA that the gunman kicked in an emergency exit door and threw a smoke bomb into the darkened theater before opening fire.

    Unreal. Even going to movie theaters now a days is dangerous.

    Check that. Youngest victim is a 3 month old baby. Baby is in fair condition though.

    Who brings a 3 mo old baby to a movie theater?

    Oh, you're in charge of that kinda thing? Good to know. Despite you being the self appointed arbiter of whether things are in good taste, I'll react to things my you, you react to things you're way, yes?

    Grave responses everyone, grave responses, or the dead will be more dead and the wounded will hurt a little bit more!

    My point is that of course this is a senseless tragedy, and the loss of these lives and the injuries to innocent movie goers is an awful thing.

    What's posted in teh Hampur concerning the situation does not change anything one way or the other. But you be the 30th person to point out the obvious if it makes you feel better. I'll make a bad joke about the psychopath who did this.

    I remember when Godfather 3 came out, Christmas Eve my wife and I went to see it and there was a shooting inside another theater. This is nuts.

    Your 3 posts in this thread reek of someone craving attention and needing a little morning altercation.

    By the way, do you live in colorodo?

    Unbelievable, my son went to an after midnight showing of this movie this morning, you would like to think you don't have to worry about your kids getting shot at the movies. My prayers for those killed and hurt.



    btw, Brady, just leave it alone why compound the reaction to your remark?

    My heart goes out to the victims. So sad that our legal system will not result in this scumbag being offed in a timely manner.

    This guy gets it!

    Didn't mean to actually offend, but still "don't get the outrage". In any case, despite being evil incarnate and a classeless attention hound, I'm happily headed out of town for the weekend for guy's weekend of poker, drinking, go kart racing, football throwing, swimming, and lots of inappropriate jokes.

    Should you see a headline that reads "8 mouth-breathers gunned down in SW Virginia cabin, including 1 tasteless Hampur poster", please feel free to post snarky comments immediately!
