Premier of Batman Dark Knight Rises Turns Deadly in Aurora Colorado
Twelve people were killed and at least 50 others were wounded early Friday when a gunman wearing a bulletproof vest opened fire during a midnight premier screening of the latest Batman movie near Denver, authorities and witnesses said.
Police and FBI are looking for motivation behind the attacks. There may have been nothing but hatred towards life. Similar to the previous Batman movie "The Dark Knight" involving Heath Ledger as the Joker where Bruce Wayne asks Alfred "Why does the Joker do what he does?".. and Michael Kain as Alfred responds "some men just want nothing more than to just to watch the world burn"
The apartment of the suspect in custody, named as James Holmes, 24, who had been a student at the University of Colorado Medical School, had been booby-trapped with what police described as sophisticated explosives or flammable material, and officers were trying to determine how to defuse the device or devices, Aurora Police Chief Dan Oates said. The area had been evacuated, and police were expected to remain on the scene "for hours or days," he said.
'I thought it was pretty much the end of the world'Roland Jones, 28, said he first thought the smoke and sounds of gunshots were all part of the film's special effects.
