Twelve dead and
50 59 injured. My thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families. UPDATES below the fold.
UPDATE 3pm: Some of the information since earlier today:
- The Aurora police chief held a press conference this afternoon and updated the count of victims. 10 people died at the scene and two more at the hospital. There will be another press conference at 9pm. The shooter wore body armor, including throat and groin protection.
- One of the injured had ties to Hampton Roads.
- The campaigns/PACs have suspended their ads in Colorado. (Wish they would suspend them everywhere.)
- The President has ordered flags to be flown at half-staff.
- Suspect’s apartment is booby-trapped.
