Over 50 people are hurt and 14 people (revised to 12) were killed as a gunman in a gas mask walked up and into to a midnight showing of the new Batman movie in Aurora, Colorado and started shooting. Seems to be one person. And that person currently is claiming he has explosives at home and in a car in the movie parking lot.
Prayers and condolences for those hurt from what looks like a young 20-something who thought a shot gun and a pistol would get him noticed. And the sad thing is, it did.
In trying to figure this out, a lot of people will likely look to both the Bane character and the terrorist, mayhem them in the movie that might have attracted this person to this venue. Some news producers are likely looking up comic book nerds in their Rolodex.
