Colorado Movie Theater Massacre
12 are dead, including a 6-year-old girl, and 70 wounded, in a mass shooting in an Aurora, Colorado movie theater. The admitted shooter, James Holmes, was arrested in a parking lot outside the theater and is now in custody. Eyewitnesses said that Holmes carried four firearms and wore a gas mask as he opened fire on the crowded movie theater.
He is charged with 24 counts of murder and 140 counts of attempted murder – two counts for each person killed and two for each person injured. He’s also charged with possession of explosives and committing a crime of violence. He has entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity and a jury will now decide whether or not he was sane at the time of the shooting.
