    This is actually pretty crazy. It's a dark night indeed.

    'Dark Knight Rises' screening shooting in suburban Denver leaves 14 dead, at least 50 wounded: police - NY Daily News

    Bruce Wayne's parents were shot while leaving a theater too, ironically enough. Maybe we'll see some Batmen.

    But I do send out my most sincere condolences.

    Insane... I'm watching the 9NEWS Broadcast.
    Seems they have apprehended the gunman.

    My heartfelt condolances to everyone who was directly involved or who have friends, relatives and loved ones who were involved.

    Not sure how they could have prevented this. Metal detectors for theatres? A bit extreme.

    Not even that would have helped... Seems the gunman forced his way through a fire-exit.
    I'm watching these images here at work in Europe: it's strange to watch all these night-time images, while most people in the US are still at sleep, and will have to wake up to this awful news later this morning.

    This is one sick and fucked up world. A cop carried a lifeless and bloodied little girl (little...) with THREE gunshot wounds in her back!

    Crush this fucker.

    Holy shit!

    Imagine how Nolan, Bale and the rest of the cast must feel about this! If they didn't make the movie those people wouldn't be there!

    This is horrible!

    He hid in the shadows.
    He was armored (no joke.)
    He waited for a moment when the film was dealing with gunshots and explosions.
    He set off an explosive, plus a smoke bomb.
    ....then opened fire over 60 times.

    This was more than planned.

    You can't predict when a crazy is going to pull something like this... I still feel bad for those people... Has there been any follow up on the 50 that were shot.

    I wonder how the people at the theater are. They never got to see the whole movie because of this fucktard.

    This is the kind of news that just ruins you. I can't imagine how those loved ones must feel. Fourteen people dead. I was so excited for this movie, and now all I'll be thinking about when I see this movie is this.

    No, it just would've been a completely other set of people at a different location.

    This guy was obviously a psycho. The whens and hows don't matter, he was going to snap. He killed fourteen people. You don't do that on impulse.

    But he didn't go through the proper entrance.

    Just woke up to this news. I wonder how the other 50 victims are.

    And how did this guy stash a gun in a theater?

    Regardless, I'm glad this man is in police custody.

    This should totally go into the 'Your worst theater experience' thread.

    On another note why was a 3 month old there in the first place?

    This is ridiculous! The second mass shooting in Colorado. I lived near Columbine during that shooting and now live near this theatre. My parents called me this morning to make sure I wasn't there. Thank God I wasn't. I pray for all those involved and hope we can get answers.
