The NYPD has also released a statement in anticipation of screenings of The Dark Knight Rises across the Big Apple today. It reads:

As previously reported, a 24-year old names James Holmes is in custody and suspected of opening fire on a theater full of attendees after initially setting off a smoke bomb. At least 12 people are considered dead and 50 wounded.

Our thoughts go out to the loved ones of the victims and we will continue to update this story as news breaks.
