Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadTwitterViolence

James Holmes

A Colorado jury just sentenced Aurora movie theater gunman James Holmes to life in prison without parole.

The decision came as a surprise to many, given the heinous nature of the crime, which claimed 12 lives, including a 6-year-old girl's. 70 others were wounded in the 2012 shooting.

Holmes reportedly had no reaction after the verdict but the same could not be said about social media. People took to Twitter to express their opinion on the outcome: some in support and others in outrage.

This breaks our hearts.

Just days after James Holmes was found guilty of murdering 12 people at a screening of The Dark Knight in Colorado in 2012, there has been yet another movie theater shooting.

During a screening of Trainwreck in Lafayete, Louisiana on Thursday night, a 58-year-old white male reportedly opened fire on theater goers, killing two and injuring seven.

Col. Michael Edmonson says that the Louisiana State Police are withholding the shooter's identity at this time, and are unable to pin point a motive.

The elderly man additionally shot himself and is dead.

Amy Schumer is the writer and star of Trainwreck, and she tweeted her support to the people of Louisiana after hearing the news, saying:

Aurora Theater Gunman Found Guilty On All Counts Of Murder

Filed under: Legal MattersR.I.P.Sad SadViolence

no title

James Holmes has been found guilty on all counts of Murder in the First Degree for the 12 people that he shot and killed during his July 20, 2012 shooting spree.

The news comes out of Centennial, CO after the 27-year-old's jury deliberated for 13 hours following his lawyers' attempts to plead insanity.

There are a total of 165 charges against James for his rampage during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, CO, including 12 deaths and 70 injuries.

While a dozen people were murdered, James has actually been found guilty of two counts of First Degree Murder for each victim; one with Extreme Indifference and one after deliberation.

Colorado has not had an execution since 1997, but now that James is in the sentencing part of his trial, he could be the first case in nearly two decades.

It's taken almost three years for the victims' families to finally get closure, but our thoughts are certainly with them now.
