|A gunman dressed head-to-toe in body armor and brandishing three weapons, including an assault rifle and a shotgun, opened fire in a theater crowded with families and children at a midnight showing of the Batman movie 'The Dark Knight Rises' in a Denver suburb early Friday morning, killing at least 12 people and wounding at least 59, police and federal officials said. The suspect, James Holmes, 24, told the police after his arrest that he had booby-trapped his Aurora apartment with explosive devices, leading the police to evacuate five buildings in the neighborhood. The number of casualties makes the incident the largest mass shooting in U.S. history.|
