AURORA, Colo. -- An overnight shooting inside a movie theater near the Aurora Mall has killed 14 people and injured at least 50 people, according to police officers at the scene.

More than 250 police officers from across the metro area -- from Brighton to Jefferson County -- have been called out to respond and are gathering near the parking lot near the Dillard's entrance.

According to a mortician called out to the scene, a person went into the movie theater showing the premiere of the "Dark Knight Rises", set off a smoke grenade and started firing.

Between 12 and 15 shots were fired. At least eight people were shot and others were injured by scrap metal pepper bomb, the mortician said.

A spokeswoman for Swedish Hospital said the hospital has received two patients in critical condition and up to 20 more patients are expected to be arriving.

A spokeswoman for University Hospital and Denver Health said that victims were also arriving at University Hospital. Witnesses told 7NEWS that the bullets were fired in Theater 8 but bullets also pierced the nearby theater.

An Aurora police spokeswoman confirmed that officers are responding to a shooting at the Century 16 Movie Theaters.

what in the world causes someone to do something like this? it has to be mental illness or some sort of mind control

what was the name of that movie with frank sinatra and laurence harvey that came out right after the JFK assasination?

the innocent people in that movie theater certainly didn't deserve this

not good news for gun owners

Sympathies and condolences to the victims and their families. As usual, what I lament is, why couldn't there have been just one righteous armed citizen in that movie theater?

Of course, we all know the routine from this point.

(sarc) It's the specter of having guns. Sooner or later, the daemon will possess you. If not, sometimes they just "go off". (/sarc)
