Earlier this morning, during the midnight premier of ‘Dark Knight Rises’ in Aurora, CO, a masked gunman was responsible for the death of 12 people and bringing injury to around 50. Law enforcement has confirmed the identity of the suspect as 24-year-old James Holmes and are currently searching his apartment , which they fear could have explosives, for more evidence as to why he did this.
Local reporter Justin Jones said the gunman was wearing body armour and a gas mask.
“The attacker shot a baby at point blank range,” he said.
During the opening credits, Dates saw someone in the front row answer a phone call and walk to the emergency door in the front of the theater, he said.
Less than an hour later a man, dressed in black and wearing a gas mask and what looked like body armor, marched into the theater through the same emergency exit. He lobbed two canisters and almost instantly the theater filled with smoke.
Dates and Seeger, like everyone else in the theater, thought the man and the smoke were all part of the show, they said. Right as their eyes began to tear up from the smoke, the man fired a shot at the ceiling.
The gunman moved through
the crowd and stopped in front of Seeger.
He pointed a long rifle at her face and said nothing.
He shot at the person sitting behind her, Seeger said.
“I have no idea why he didn’t shoot me,” Seeger said.
The two dove to the ground. They could feel hot shell casings hitting their legs as the tried to crawl through the dark theater now filled with smoke. Seeger’s forehead has a burned from one of the casings.
Her friends urged each other and the people around them to stay quiet, desperate not to draw the attention of the gunman who was working his way up the isle.
As she huddled on the ground, Seeger could see bodies of women and children lying around her.

to help a man bleeding next to her. She worked to find a pulse, but was forced to leave him behind as they tried to flee the theater.
People tried to exit through the main entrance of the theater, Seeger said. By then the gunman had worked his way to the back of the theater, shooting at people as they tried to run.
Seeger estimates she was trapped in the theater for 10 to 15 minutes. When she finally reached the lobby, she saw a police officer cocking a shot gun.

Obviously, seeing as Thursday 4Play revolves around funny photos, the following photos will be quotes that go with photos from comedy films. There are four wonderful films that are being featured, because these are some of my favorite and more recent. Ironically, this was one of the hardest 4Play’s I’ve had, to date, simply because there were so many funny moments from each of these, that it was extremely hard to decide. If you haven’t seen any and/or all of these movies, I HIGHLY suggest that you give them a try! Enjoy!

America’s In Touch Weekly magazine has reported that the Smiths have decided to end their marriage after 13-years. No one has spoken out about this from either individual, and some friends that are close to the couple have said that these claims are false.
This power couple has created two beautiful children together, Jaden, 13, and Willow, 10. Along with their kids, they also managed to bring in a whopping 20 million last year, combined.
If the claims are tue, this would be the second divorce for Smith, “who divorced former fashion design student Sheree Zampino in 1995 after three years together.They have a son, Willard Christopher Smith, also known as Trey, who is now 18.”
The two first met back in 1990, when Jada was auditioning to be Will’s girlfriend on his hit television show, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Although she did not get the part due to her lack of height, she and Smith became close and she was able to help him through his divorce in 1995. Soon after, Will and Jada married, while she was 2 months pregnant with their son, Jaden.

In Plainville, Connecticut - One officer was shot, another injured during apprehension of a child molester who was attending the Harry Potter movie premier. The suspect Eric Gothberg did not go willingly which is what triggered police to pull their weapons. The officer that was shot had just arrived on the scene when a bullet missed the suspect and came his way. Both officers are now fine and suspect is in custody.
“The Undefeated,” was having some special launches of the movie in select cities today. Unfortunately, this was either a little too secretive or no one really cared because the premier was seen by very few people at all. Almost no one showed up for this event, although the theater was quite overwhelmed by ‘Harry Potter’ fans.
Conor Friedersdorf, associate editor at The Atlantic stated that he “sat there alone for 20 minutes, at which point an usher stuck his head in the door, gave [him] a quizzical smile, and said, ‘How come you’re not watching Harry Potter?’”
While I’m sure this is an amazing film *not* I’m not too shocked that it premiered to an empty audience. Sadly, Bachmann is the new Palin and nobody really cares about her anymore.
