12 Dead in Shooting at Dark Knight Movie Premiere

This happened overnight in Aurora Colorado.  Early reports have the number of dead at 12, with perhaps 50 or more wounded. The video below is from a camera phone, and is incredibly surreal.  Among other things you see a man who appears to have been shot at least twice walking out of the theatre, along with a young man who is dressed as Batman being escorted out.  The shooter apparently used tear gas before he opened fire, and his bizarre attire, including a gas mask, made him somewhat resemble one of the movie villains, Bane.  There will be much more on this.  May God's mercy, grace and healing be on the victims and their loved ones in this madness.
