Just breaking on FNC. Children dead....

Addendum: at least two shooters, one's in custody, one escaped. Seems they used smoke bombs in the theater to create panic and then opened fire. "Military style long guns".

Addendum: twelve confirmed dead...

Aurora, yes. Denver suburb.

Addendum: http://www.radioreference.com/apps/audio/?action=cwp&ctid=243 Live scanner feed.

Aurora PD statement says they think only ONE shooter and he's in custody. Fourteen confirmed dead.

AM radio is reporting it as Aurora, CO, at least 20 wounded, one suspect in custody.
.......................................
(edit) 14 dead, 50 wounded. The suspect may have also booby trapped his apartment ... Ugh, where did they dig this guy up from?

As if I needed any more of a reminder to never get stuck in a crowd.

Sky News (UK) reporting that the shootings took place in two different screens. Used tear gas and wore body armour.

Manhunt underway with one in custody.

This is an area that is adjacent to the Town Center Mall shopping center and is usually well patrolled by police. So I gather response was pretty quick but this is the largely minority populated area of Aurora in an area surrounded by apartment buildings and condos.

Are they reporting that this was caused by Islumists? I am curious because one or two people on bath salts, or a couple gang members cowardly attacking their cross town rivals in the dark should not be a reason to raise a national threat level.

They're reporting that the man was a local, from North Aurora, and his apartment has been evacuated.

The reporter has just said that 'this is a local incident'.

So, that would suggest there is no Islamist involvement. I think the FBI are a little jumpy.

When gunmen come out alive within tragic events like this makes me wonder why LE didn't shoot to kill. Police don't seem to hesitate in most other instances.

It's very convenient for something like this to happen 1 week before this UN Small Arms Trade Treaty is up to bat. Another great opportunity for the gun grabbers to attack the 2nd amendment.

On a side note, the Anders Breivik shooting anniversary is in two days.

3:34 AM - Mountain Time - Western Montana News

I have OTA regular local stations, no cable - no dish, here in Western Montana.

CBS all night news is not even talking about it yet.

ABC all night news IS talking about it.

I have not checked NBC yet.

The police are saying that there are now 14 dead and up to 50 injured now.

Rifle, handgun and gas mask = on the gun man. Canister was released and gas or something was released at the movie house. The gun man states that he has other THINGS, explosives, etc., at his apartment building or house.

The ABC news people are already talking about people NOT being SEARCHED BEFORE THEY ENTER A MOVIE HOUSE! They seem to think that IS a good idea just like you have to do when you FLY. Bla, bla and bla.

May the dead rest in peace. I am sorry that this happened. It is a shame that no one could have stopped the murderer asap. :mad:

This reminds me of why people like me open or conceal carry so they can STOP a perp - defend themselves. Did the gun shots start ONLY when there was loud action going on during the movie and how DARK was the movie house at that time? Do any of you know those details yet?

(I have not been inside of a movie house for OVER 10 years - one time. The music/sound/talking was so LOUD that I thought that I should have worn my gun ear muffs because my ears ached. The time before that one time out here in Missoula was back east and it was almost 15 years or more before I had been in a movie house - one time.)

May the dead rest in peace. May the injured live and heal.

May they give the murderer the DEATH penalty after his trial and he is found guilty. Firing squad or hung in a public square.

Now they are talking about lone wolf or domestic terrorism.

Now, we will hear more from the anti gun - anti liberty - anti self defense groups. Ugh.

Thanks flaire. I might think that a reporter was putting words into someones mouth. Asking a backhanded question in an effort to get the answer they are digging for.

Sick asses whoever did this. People minding their own business enjoying the summertime, and it is destroyed forever. I blame the media for showing how big the movie would be, and the asses who sit around hating what the latest craze people are in to.
