They've got him in custody now, reported that he was wearing body armour and a gas mask - sounds like someone can't separate fact from fantasy :(

A suspect has been arrested and was found with two weapons, including a rifle, in his possession.

The suspect alluded to bombs at his house and officers were at his apartment in North Aurora.

A bulletin was issued to other police agencies throughout the metro area warning them of the possibility of similar incidences in theaters in their cities.

I wonder if they believe this is not an isolated incident if they are worried about similar things.

This is absolutely terrible.. I guess a small shred of comfort though is that they got the son of a bitch who did this.

Apparently he also set off a tear gas canister and had "incendiary device" in his vehicle, and possibly an explosive device in his apartment.. Cops are also saying one of his 3 firearms had been stashed in the theater (employee?)

WTF was that on the live news report from the police chief? About the 15th person to have died was very angry about being down voted on Americas Got Talent?

What a terrible incident.

And before anyone can start with 'only in the US': The perpetrator has obviously planned the attack meticulously. Crazed nutters with messed up minds like him exist globally and will always find the means to acquire the necessary weapons. Unfortunately.

I'm amazed that they got the suspect alive. Usually, they just blow the **** out of him then try to figure out the why after the fact.

Report is 15 dead. They also said Aurora has a gang problem, so one more thing to investigate.

50 (FIFTY) others also wounded, one little girl, nine years old, shot in the back, carried out not moving.....

When will madness like this ever end? I have my views on why things like this happen, but will not attempt to get into that on this forum.

I suppose there are many reasons why this happens.. exposure to ever more violent media, people becoming more and more detached from society and isolated, easy access to dangerous weapons, etc etc.. but it could just be someone with mental illness. You just never know. I'm sure we'll find out more about the guy in the next few days..

Yeah.. only you don't have to make it easier for them. Guns should not be allowed to purchase as freely as they are in this country. It would have been much more difficult for them to get guns from a 3rd party. First you need to know people like that, it's not as easy as walking into Walmart and getting a gun. Not to mention it's easier for buy a rifle or a shotgun than it is to buy a handgun.
