According to CNN:
A heavily armed gunman attacked an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater early Friday, tossing tear gas before opening fire on the terrified audience and killing 12 and wounding 38, authorities said. The theater was showing the new Batman movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”
One of the injured was just 3 months old, according to hospital workers.
The shooter used at least four guns — an “AK type” rifle, a shotgun and two handguns, a federal law enforcement official told CNN. The source also said the shooter used tear gas.
One police officer carried a girl believed to be about 9 with gunshot wounds to her back out of the theater, a witness said. “She wasn’t moving.”
I have never heard something like this before,somewhere where real shooters come into cinemas and starting shooting people,what could have happened with that guy?Were any mental issue involved?
NY Times also reported:
“We were watching a scene of the movie—it was a shootout scene, there were guns firing. Then loud bangs came from the right of the theater. Smoke took over the entire theater, and it was really thick and no one could really see anything. Me and my sister were sitting there wondering what was going on. Five people were limping, wounded, slightly bloody. I saw a girl who was pretty much covered in blood. It made me think the worst. A cop came walking through the front door before everyone was cleared up and before everything was completely under control holding a little girl in his arms, and she wasn’t moving.”
I am only thinking at those injured people,what is on their minds after going only to one normal cinema and just watching one normal movie or at least trying to.
This proves that there’s no secured place anywhere!
Hopefully everything will be fine.
