Emergency phone calls from last July's Colorado movie theater shooting in a court hearing – played by prosecutors in a court hearing this morning – reveal some of the horror and confusion from that night.
Because the movie was still playing during the shooting and, in at least one call, the gunman was still stalking the theater, the calls are difficult to make out. In one, there's too much sound to make out what the caller was saying, but the gunshots were unmistakable: At least 30 gunshots in 27 seconds.
In another, a 13-year-old girl called to say her cousins had been shot. A 911 operator tried to lead the sobbing girl through performing CPR on one who was still breathing.
Tuesday's proceeding was a preliminary hearing for James Holmes, a 25-year-old former neuroscience graduate student accused of killing 12 people at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" in Aurora, Colorado.FULL STORY
