US: Ten feared dead after shooting at Batman movie premiere
TEN people are feared dead after a gun attack at a midnight screening of the latest Batman movie in the US, according to news reports.
A gunman in a gas mask opened fire at the cinema in the Denver suburb of Aurora and set off a smoke or tear gas canister, local radio said.
Reporter Brenda Stuart said movie-goers thought the attack was part of the film at first.
She told Sky News: “A lot of people thought the gunshots were part of the movie.
“Then bullets started flying.”
She added: “Police officers are taking people to hospital themselves, not waiting for ambulances.”
Ms Stuart said the incident happened about 30 minutes into the screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
