Mother of Colorado Shooting Victim to Sue Movie Theater

by at .

Another lawsuit is preparing to be filed in response to the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado last Friday morning.

Shirley Wygal, whose 32-year old daughter Rebecca Wingo was among the dozen victims of James Holmes' attack, has reportedly hired an attorney and will soon file suit against the Century 16 Theater, citing a lack of security.

According to TMZ insiders, Shirley alleges that the theater's emergency doors - through which an armed Holmes burst through - should have been equipped with alarms and/or guards should have been placed alongside these exits.

A movie goer who survived the massacre has also filed a lawsuit, naming three defendants: Warner Bros., Holmes' doctors and this same theater.

The corporate owner of the theater, Cinemark, has offered to pay all funeral expenses for the victims, a gesture that actually started with Rebecca Wingo. But Wygal turned down the offer and said the event was already covered by another organization.
