One year later: On this date in 2012, a heavily-armed gunman walked into a midnight screening of “The Dark Knight Rises,” and opened fire, killing a dozen people and injuring 70 others, paralyzing some of those victims. This week, Aurora, Colorado honored the victims, along with the other victims of gun violence since the Newtown shooting in December, reading off more than 5,000 names. Rep. Rhonda Fields, left, who represents the district, says that both she and the community she represents have struggled to come to grips with the incident. “It hasn’t fully mended after a year,” she said. (photo by Hyoung Chang/via USA Today)

Gunman killed in police standoff in Aurora, CO

4people killed in a shooting at a townhome in Aurora, Colorado, including the gunman. The police attempted to negotiate with armed assailant, still barricaded inside the home for hours this morning, until he fired on police, prompting a raid that left him dead at around 9 AM. Three other adults in the home were found dead. This is no doubt a grim and evocative incident for the people of Aurora, the same Colorado town in which a brutal shooting during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises last year, gripping national attention. source
