ABC News have named one James Holmes, 24, of North Aurora, as the man arrested at the scene of the Denver cinema massacre during the midnight screening of the The Dark Knight Rises, wearing a a bullet-proof vest and riot helmet. He was captured in the car park outside the cinema with a gas mask, rifle, and handgun. And it is his apartment block which has been evacuated and searched as a result of fears of further action.
The Washington Examiner is asking whether or not the Denver Dark Knight Massacre was based on a scene in The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller, the tone of which has informed much of the current Christian Bale Batman trilogy, as well as lending it its Dark Knight title.
Reports have been coming in that at around fifty have been injured and from twelve to fifteen,depending on conflicting reports, have so far been killed in a shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rising at Century 16 cinema in Aurora, Denver. 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. Four died at the cinema, and the others died at local hospitals. People have been treated for chemical inhalation as well as gunshot wounds.
