The Colorado massacre at a midnight release for â€śThe Dark Knight Rises,â€ť caused a stir everywhere, including among local residents.
As the new Batman movie played in a Aurora, Colo. theater, a gunman, identified as 24-year-old James Holmes, dressed in black and wearing a helmet, body armor and a gas mask, stepped through one of the theater doors.
He then threw gas canisters, filling the theater with smoke and opened fire on the innocent bystanders using a military-style semi-automatic rifle, a shotgun and a pistol, stopping only to reload.
