James Holmes opened fire in the middle of a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora, CO, killing at least a dozen people and wounding at least 50 others. James’ victims ranged in age from a 3-month-old to a 31 year old. He is currently in police custody.
Holmes is a 24-year-old who was studying neuroscience at the University of Colorado. James grew up in San Diego.
Holmes wore a bulletproof vest, riot helmet and a gas mask when he entered the Century 16 Movie Theater through an emergency exit and randomly began shooting people. He tossed tear gas into the crowd before he began firing at patrons.
Holmes reportedly used a rifle, a shotgun, a handgun and another firearm on his victims.
Our condolences go out to the victims and their friends and family.
