Notes on press conference:

Sheriff corrects that not all victims were shot. He can't give number of who was shot and who was injured in another way but he does say that "almost all" were gunshot victims.

They don't have confirmation of the identity yet on all the deceased, but it should be soon and they will be visiting each family.

Evacuated 5 apartment buildings and the evacuees are staying at a high school.

The apartment is a very "vexing problem". He's never seen anything like what the pictures show in the apartment. There are trip wires every where, jars with ammo, jars with liquids.

They have postponed action on the apartment. They will readdress tomorrow.

Anyone can buy body armor however many vendors will not sell to anyone without a letterhead.
The shooter may have bought it online or second hand from a security guard that no longer uses it due to many reasons, quit, new vest, Etc.
But body armor is very legal to own, unless it is used in the commission of a crime.
This guy will get a hefty sentence if it gets that far, I guarantee.

Going over what we have discussed about subject. He left university voluntarily and verifies he kept to himself.

Will have extra security at theaters who are showing the Batman movie for the time being....out of "extra precaution".

What a horrible thing to experience from both ends - if you are in the room with the deceased, listening to their phone ring endlessly and also if you are endlessly calling a person you know was there but is not answering...

And did you hear that part about what he said looked like a mortar round?

That place is a death trap.

How many incidents like this is it goin to take before America
Realise their culture/society and guns do not mix. I see people
All the time people defend havin guns by saying well this country has this and this country does this
Etcetera but please fce it America you are the worst for mass
Shootings with absolutely no political agenda/warfare behind it. You say that guns don't kill peopl
People do but if this happened in the UK
This guy would never have even found the gun to do
It let alone the amo.


As sad as this incident is, I have to disagree with you. It's not the guns that did this, and he really did not have anything near what was used in other such incidents, like in your country (Cumbria shootings) 2 years ago, and your police force had nothing to fire back at him if they had the opportunity.

Guns are part of our Constitution, actually installed to defend ourselves against British tyranny in the colonies, if you recall. If you outlawed the guns here, it would all go underground, and then the criminals would have access to firepower that would outclass anything a registered civilian or policeman would have at their disposal. A sad but sobering fact. People kill, and the gun is just a convenient first choice tool, otherwise it would be knives, swords and bombs.

Yeah...I don't mean this in any macabre way, but being an engineer, I really can't wait to see the pictures taken of the inside of this apartment. At this point that apartment has not killed anyone and I think just how it is set up will say alot about his mind.

Noticing a frightening trend...alot of "missing people" who went to the movie last night...does that mean they are the deceased? My friend who lives in Denver just sent out a e mail that her friend is missing, went to the movie and is not answering her phone.....I honestly did not think the 6 degrees would hit me.

Don't you think that is unusual?

Also - surely they can't just blow up the apartment (as I've heard), not knowing what is inside?

This seems so crazy...

Sheriff is very broke up about what his guys went through. His voice shook at the very beginning, but now that he was asked about his men it was really tough for him to get through. Said they will be working to address their men's own trauma.

7.18 Aurora, Colo. Police Chief: If we had information about a motive, we would not share it with the press


are you kidding me? source

Yeah this conference was crap:

3000 rounds of 223
3000 rounds of .40 cal
300 rounds of 12 guage

all purchased legally off the net

Then the body armor?

Most states it is illegal to own most sellers won't even sell them to civis.

Get ready this is going to come back on gun owners no doubt.

And my sympathies do go out to those victims.

Oh yeah the drum magazine jammed but when the police chief started dealing with could haves ?"

Nah just the facts please.

It's quite haunting to think about.


I came to find out reddit was responsible for digging up that site and ended up finding a giant list they have of updates. It's in six parts (as of now), here's part one for those who want to follow and see anything missed.

Yeah, it's weird. Unusual. I mean the only time you would not release a photo of a suspect is when they are a suspect, not a detainee. You got the guy. Why the hell would you need to refrain from releasing his mugshot for investigative reasons?

I bet the Denver newspaper will file an open records act on that call.
