    He did not shoot at anyone except one polliceman. He did release possibly pepper spray in the theater. He hung out near the backdoor behind the Sprint store for a number of hours prior to the incident at the theater. Shep Smith talked with the people at Sprint who saw the guy early on.

    One person was said to have been wounded by the hatchet in the attack

    It comes just two weeks after John Russell Houser open fired in a Lafayette, Louisiana, theater - killing two people and injuring nine

    Police spokesman Don Aaron said the actions of the officer who shot the man likely saved many lives.

    Hoping the injured will be o.k.!!
    NOT going to mourn the death of this twisted monster.

    Starting to think going to see a movie is maybe not worth it ; it's very rare that this happens, but for the lunatic mind out there--- it's like a prime target, with people there in great numbers and unarmed.
    No one expects to be attacked in this type of situation. :(

    Sorry, but with the Holmes sentencing happening now..... this is just too much. I'm thankful there will be no trial for this perp.

    :moo:
