14 dead, at least 50 injured in shooting at Colorado movie theater, police say
At least 14 people have been killed and up to 50 injured after a mass shooting at a showing of “The Dark Knight Rises” at a suburban Denver movie theater, police say.
The suspect, believed to be the lone gunman, is in police custody. KUSA reports that the suspect kicked down an emergency door at the theater, threw in some type of a smoke bomb and when moviegoers started to run, he began shooting.
Witnesses say they heard a series of explosions and up to 20 gunshots after the scene grew chaotic. About 100 witnesses were taken to a local high school to be questioned by police.
