12 DEAD; 71 SHOT AS GUNMAN OPENS FIRE DURING “DARK KNIGHT RISES” SCREENING IN COLORADO – With VIDEO of Inside the Theater

Twelve people are dead and dozens injured after a masked gunman opened fire during a screening in a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.  Witnesses say the man may have been dressed as the “Bane” character from the film that was playing, The Dark Knight Rises. The theater was sold out due to it being the opening night of the much-anticipated film.

The suspect was apprehended by police behind the theater. In his possession were a gas mask and several weapons. The police say they believe the suspect released tear gas in the theater before the shootings began. Unconfirmed reports claim victims range in age from three months to 30 years old.

See the cell phone video taken from inside the theater below:

UPDATE 1:  Police have lowered the body count from 14 to 12. (8:28am ET)
