Gunman Kills 14 at Midnight Showing of Dark Knight Rises at Denver Theater
by Johnny Kincaid
Why the gunman opened fire is still not known, but in the early morning hours a gunman opened fire on a crowd of people at a midnight showing of ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ Fourteen people died and another 50 were injured.
Witnesses say that the suspect was wearing a bullet proof vest and a helmet. Before opening the fire, the suspect threw what appeared to be a gas canister filling the theater with smoke.
Police believe that the suspect that they have in custody acted alone but no motive has been given.
