The world continues to mourn the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. Many questions are still left unanswered as the police continue their investigation. So far 12 have been confirmed killed and 50 others have been wounded. Many are in critical condition.
A lot of people have been sending in their thoughts and prayers all morning long, including some of Hollywood’s nerd elite.
Chris Evans: What the hell is happening?? My heart is completely shattered. All of my thoughts and prayers are with the people of aurora.
Samuel L. Jackson: I hope none of you were in that Colo. theater last nite! Heartfelt sympathy for all victims & families.
