12 Killed, Even More Injured After Masked Gunmen Shoots Up The Dark Knight Movie Screening In Denver Colorado
Like millions [my estimate] I headed out of my home last night around midnight to get the first look at the new Dark Knight Rising movie. Being a die hard Batman fan [until my real boo Superman comes back] I ordered my tickets several hours before arriving to the theaters along with my sisters and my husband. Upon arriving, there were hundreds of young people packed in the theater and 30 minutes before the film even began the entire theater was filled with no available seating. Luckily, even with the large amount of rowdy teenagers who should have been at home and had absolutely no business out of the house past midnight [especially since the movie did not end until 3:45], the crowd was rather calm, pleasant and everyone seemed to be on their best behavior. We all laughed, cried and shouted for joy throughout the entire movie and when it was over…we all peacefully walked to our vehicles and took our butts home where I [am assuming and praying] we all laid our head safely on our pillows to dream about the next Dark Knight movie we couldn’t wait to see.
Fast forward to this morning…
I woke up this morning to hear some horrible and devastating news. The very movie that I went to see last night with my family, the same movie that ended peacefully for me…ended horribly for hundreds of people in Denver, Colorado. According to NY Daily News, the gunmen entered the movie theater equipped with a bullet proof vest, a gas mask identical to the mask that the character Bane wore in the new movie, tear gas and a smoke bomb. Eyewitnesses state that the shooter told the crowd that he was the “Joker and an enemy of Batman”, set off the can of gas and then opened fire.
The shooter, James Holmes, was arrested shorty after the shooting about 10 miles from where it happened. Holmes was a former medical student at the University of Colorado. The youngest of Holmes victims was a 4 month old baby with the next being a six year old child who was treated along with several other victims who were treated for injuries.
