Gunman opens fire on midnight DKR crowd: kills 10-12

SOURCE:http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...86J0AM20120720

Details are sketchy now, but they say up to 30-40 injured. Even more creepy given some of the events in the movie itself.

It's changed to at least 14 dead now. And the captured gunman has stated that he set up some sort of a bomb at his home.

Terrible news.

I'm amazed the nut let himself be apprehended.

Link? I can't find anything to corroborate this. No offense intended Lt. Ripley. This is beyond shocking.

Perhaps a Marvel comics fan. Somebody who wants to make sure that DKR doesn't make a bigger draw at the box office than The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-man. People will be scared away from going to see DKR because they're afraid of copy cat killers.

I'm joking, but I'm really upset by this.

You seem incredibly shook up by this event. We won't hold it against you if you were to step away from the forum for a few days.

Sounds like Joe Chill just got an upgrade to a Vertigo series. *rimshot*

That's all I got folks.

From what they're saying on the news in Denver (www.news9.com has a live feed), this was not exactly the best area of Aurora.

They're saying 50 injured, 14 dead right now... officially. 1 shooter using a pistol, semi-automatic (someone said AR-16), and tear gas.

I keep hearing that children and even a baby were killed, but that's unconfirmed. A baby though! Who brings a baby to a midnight showing?!

The Dark Knight Rises... and so does the death toll. Yes, I'm going to hell.

Obviously the shooter planned it so he could do the most amount of damage (ie. packed theatre crowd). Not sure if it's accurate, but I read that he opened fire during a shootout scene in the movie, which would probably result in delayed reactions from the crowd as some wouldn't notice right away what was happening - which also seems planned.

Pretty fucked up.

The creepy thing is that a lot of us saw the film at midnight tonight and this could've happened at any of our theaters. A very sad story indeed.

Someone who was there this evening posted on Reddit shortly after the incident occurred: http://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/co..._the_midnight/

Hahaha! Sal the Stockbroker Captain Janks just prank called the local news in Denver (News9). I knew that would happen.

"Funny" thing is - some rabid Batman fans will bring this up if it loses out on best weekend opening...

This is sad news. I just cannot fathom what goes on in some peoples heads.

How did he know there would be a shootout scene? It was the first showing.

It was on in the background what was the exchange? Something about Howard Stern voting the shooter off America's Got Talent?
