The supposedly organized movie premiere in Denver, Colorado turned into a bloody massacre as a gunman entered the theatre and started shooting.

The gunman opened fire early Friday at a suburban Denver movie theater on the opening night of the latest Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises,” killing 14 people and injuring at least 50 others. The youngest injured named so far was a six year old girl, though there are also reports of a three month year old child admitted to hospital.

The lone gunman had been described as wearing a gas mask, and an unnamed man was arrested by police with both a rifle and a hand-gun. After telling  police that explosives were stored at his home, an Auroran apartment block was then evacuated.

A witness told a local news station that
initially he believed the sounds and the smoke were part of the
premiere of the event, put on by the cinema. Another witness described a
man six foot tall who kicked through the door in a riot helmet with a
bullet proof vest covered in black and goggles, holding a shot gun,
before they dropped to the floor and crawled to safety. When she turned
around, she saw the man slowly making his way up the stairs and firing
at people.

President Obama issued a statement in response to the incident..

Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic
shooting in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still
responding, and my Administration will do everything that we can to
support the people of Aurora in this extraordinarily difficult time. We
are committed to bringing whoever was responsible to justice, ensuring
the safety of our people, and caring for those who have been wounded. As
we do when confronted by moments of darkness and challenge, we must now
come together as one American family. All of us must have the people of
Aurora in our thoughts and prayers as they confront the loss of family,
friends, and neighbors, and we must stand together with them in the
challenging hours and days to come.
