The mass shooting at a midnight showing of the latest Batman movie "The Dark
Knight Rises" in a mall in the Aurora suburb was the worst in the United States
since the 2007 shooting on the Virginia Tech campus.
"Michelle and I are shocked and saddened by the horrific and tragic shooting
in Colorado. Federal and local law enforcement are still responding, and my
administration will do everything that we can to support the people of Aurora in
this extraordinarily difficult time," Obama said in a statement.
