14 Killed At "Knight Rises" Screening

Fourteen people are confirmed dead and up to fifty have been wounded at the Century 16 film theaters at the Aurora Mall in suburban Denver reports The Australian.

A man wearing body armor and a gas mask apparently used teargas and then began shooting during a midnight screening of "The Dark Knight Rises". Most of the dead in the cinema itself were children or teenagers, while a baby was shot point blank.

Moviegoers apparently initially thought it was part of the film. A suspect has been taken into custody, but no name was released.
