This is just horrific.
According to the latest reports, 12 people were killed and dozens more injured in a shooting at an Aurora, Colorado movie theatre last night.
The suspect supposedly entered the theatre which was showing the newly released Dark Knight Rises film, ejected some type of tear gas and then proceeded to open fire on the audience.
The alleged shooter has now been identified as 24 year old James Holmes, and it is believed he acted alone.
Holmes is currently in police custody, and reportedly, his only previous interaction with the law was a 2011 traffic ticket.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone involved in this disturbing ordeal.
