14 dead in shooting at US cinema video
« on: July 20, 2012, 07:18:40 PM »
DENVER: -- US police say 14 people are dead following a shooting at a suburban movie theatre in the state of Colorado.

Police chief Dan Oates said 50 others were wounded when gunfire erupted early on Friday at the Aurora theatre in the city of Denver.

Oates said a gunman appeared at the front of one of the Century 16 theatres.

He says "witnesses tell us he released some sort of canister. They heard a hissing sound and some gas emerged and the gunman opened fire."

Police say one person has been arrested. Oates says there's no evidence of any additional shooters.

Calls to police about the shooting started coming in about 12.30am (1730 AEST) on Friday from a mall theatre that was showing the Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises.

One person has been arrested but police did not have any other details.

"The scene is still very active and we have little information for release at this time," police spokeswoman Cassidee Carlson said in a brief news release
