A shooting at a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" at a movie theatre in Aurora, Colorado early today has left at least 14 people dead and at least 50 people injured, authorities confirmed.

Police now have apprehended a suspect who has been described as an adult male and have recovered a gun after the shooting at approximately 12:30 a.m. CT at the Century 16 Movie Theaters at the Aurora Town Center in the Denver suburb. 

Witnesses said that the man appeared at the front of the theater with a rifle, handgun and gas mask. Witnesses said that he then threw a canister that released some kind of gas, after which a hissing sound ensued. The gunman then opened fire on the crowd packed into the early morning screening of the film, according to people in the theater at the time.
Later in the story there is an assetion that there is no Islamic terrorist connection, which seems like "duh" but also to short circuit the first hour of Fox & Friends default setting.

I'm sure that Wayne LaPierre will have something stirring and inspirational to say about this.

Such as, "the death toll would have been much lower, if everyone else had had an assault rifle, a handgun and a gas mask."

Let's wait for the details. This better not be Limbaugh-incited terrorism.

and TBogg gets the Tweet of the Day award: "This is Wayne LaPierre's world - we just die in it."

Also, too: In the news article I read, they were *rather fast* in declaring this 'not an act of Terrism'. Because, you know, not a Brown Person.
