Age of those that died range from 6 years old to 31 years old. 12 are dead and 71 are wounded.  The city of Aurora, Colorado  (sits next door to Columbine) is reeling this morning in the aftermath of this sick sob’s shooting.  His mother wasn’t surprised?

James Holmes, 24 (DOB 12/13/1987, the car he was driving had Tenn license plates, drop out neuroscience Ph.D. student) entered the mall in Aurora, Colorado dressed in black and wearing a gas mask and bullet-proof vest and set off a smoke bomb at the showing of The Dark Knight Rises before opening fire.

Aurora police said that 12 people died in the horrific attack, and the bodies of 10 victims are still inside the theatre.

Scores of injured victims are now fighting for their lives; the youngest is just three months old, and is believed to have been shot at blank point range in the back.

What on earth could possess a 24 year old to do this during a premiere of a movie (Batman of all things)?   Who takes a 3 month old to a midnight adult movie?  Prayers for all.

Note:  A very disturbing comment was made on a forum.    If this is true, this person must be held accountable for their actions.

Someone has stepped forward and corroborated this however, I also believe that it could have been Holmes pretending to take a call in order to secure his getaway.


The CALL7 Investigators have learned the gunman bought a ticket to the Batman movie, sat down for about 15 minutes, and then propped open the back door to the theater when it was dark. The gunman then went back to his car and parked it in the back of the theater, grabbed the guns and went in through the open back door.Police said the man set off two devices with some type of irritant or smoke, then started shooting.
