    The Batman Massacre

     

    (not my photo)

     

    Last night, at the premier showing of Batman in Aurora, CO, a man, suspect James Holmes, entered Theatre 9 and began "unloading". Eyewitnesses saw something fly from the back of the theatre. Some thought it was a prank or a way to pump up the crowd while others instantly knew something was not right. The police say that this man was, "Armed for battle." The 24 year old suspect was armed with a rifle, a handgun, two shotguns, smoke grenades, a bullet proof vest and a gas mask. Due to a sufficient amount of ambulances being unavailable, police loaded victims into their units and transported them to the nearest hospital. Police and FBI are investigating the suspect's apartment complex, as his car was already searched and cleared. President Barack Obama is to speak at 11:20 and address the fact that 71 people were shot, 12 people were killed and 59 were injured. Victims range anywhere from 3 months old to 60+ years old.

     

    President Barack Obama's first response was this: "Such violence, such evil is senseless."

     

    Many around the country are frightened of "copy cats". The Dark Night was set to be one of the hottest movies of the summer.

    UPDATE: James Holmes was alone and he is a PhD student.
