    Mass shooting at Batman premiere in Colorado

    So reports about this incident began popping up a few hours ago

    AT LEAST 10 people have been killed and more than 20 wounded when two gunmen wearing a gas masks and body armour opened fire at a crowded cinema premiere in Denver.

    Authorities have confirmed 10 dead and 39 injured in the shooting at at a cinema at a shopping mall in Aurora, Colorado.

    Police arrested the alleged gunmen and were searching for another, following chaotic scenes at a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises, the latest Batman movie, KDVR, a local Fox affiliate, reported.

    Local radio station 850 KOA Radio quoted witnesses as saying that an individual wearing a gas mask opened fire in a theatre at the Aurora Mall.

    The attacker then set off what appeared to be a smoke bomb or teargas bomb.

    One witness, Hayden Miller, told Denver's 9News he was in an adjoining cinema when he heard "10-20 shots" and "small explosions".

    "We heard people screaming," Mr Miller said.

    He said a voice then came over the PA system and "told us to get out".

    "Everyone was running, screaming," he said.

    One suspect was in custody, police said. It was unclear whether other suspects were involved.

    If it was some kind of a publicity stunt there wouldn't be 14 people killed...

    No-one's suggesting it was any sort of publicity stunt. I'm probably just cynical

    It wasn't a publicity stunt, but I'm just saying, that if it was, there wouldn't be deaths...

    I read the youngest victim was a three month old baby.

    This is disgusting. RIP to the victims.

    I heard that the baby was injured, not killed. But that begs the question of what is a 3 month old doing at a midnight showing? Some parents, I just don't understand... I still feel awful that this happened.

    You're asking the wrong question, what the hell was the guy doing shooting innocent move-goers?

    Not all victims have to die. Conversely, not all victims live.

    Anyways, I heard about this in the car this morning and am appalled at the actions of human beings sometimes. We've been discussing it at work. It's horrifying.

    RIP to those lost and my condolences to all affected, in whatever way possible.

    Mentally disturbed. No one normal would do this.

    That question is implyed, thus I didn't ask it... I was asking more or less a perverbial question. More like an inside thought. As a parent, bed time is an important structured time of day in my house. My kids become evil when their tired. I can't imagine taking them out of the house at that time or keeping them up that late... To each their own, though. And yes, Minus, I get what you mean about victims. I just felt it was necessary to point out that it was an injury, not a death.

    I do see what you mean. It is a little odd in general, but as you said, 'to each their own'.
